Hi all Unfortunately not good again but have added some vids about sharpening with poor grip, etc. on YouTube (Reduced Mobility Bushcraft) Hoping to get out more when I can walk better again. Meanwhile have a look at the Met Office Cloud weather guide and pronunciation. Enjoy Met Office guide to cloud types and pronunciations

Update

Wow.  Just realised how long it's been since I updated.
I've passed the intermediate certification from BushclassUSA and am pleased to say that someone from the UK was the 1st to pass the Advanced (well done John Fenna).
Loads happening including a new UK Bushcraft Level 1 award and Level 2 certificate I'm hoping to deliver from one of the leading UK adult education providers.
Still playing down the woods and blacksmithing and now trying to turn on a metal lathe.
The quad makes it loads easier to get to the woods but Arthritis limits it unfortunately,
Speak soon, Kev.

New woods to meet in

Wohoo.
I've been allowed to use 6 acres of woods local to me to pursue the Bushcraft stuff
It's well overgrown and has limited access routes into it but the wildlife find loads of ways in.
It's brill being able to light fires, track a few deer. etc there.
A few pics

New folding trivet and Bushclass USA certification

I have passed the Bushcraft USA basic certification at BushclassUSA and am well on the way to intermediate certification.
(Update....Now at Intermediate yehay)
You have to do loads of basic stuff like knots, fire, tarps, tree id, etc, etc

Heres my new badges.  I'm well happy

BushClass "Basic" Rocker

Just made some new bits up as well
here we go:

This is the prototype . I prefer to just coat it in vegetable oil so it seasons with use



You can fold it flat



or take it to bits (3 bolts) - Don't worry the legs and sides that join are marked with the same number of dots (either 1, 2 or 3) - It will have new bolts. I just had these to hand



and it weighs in at..................about 550grams (1lb 1/4 in old money) and its not even titanium



though it has a 17cm side length



I can add 2 cross bars but it adds to the weight obviously

Opps forgot tosay it will hold a tree hehe


Hope you like it
