    Some Scouty / Bushcrafty photos

    I've not been on for a while due to IT issues and a hectic schedule of Scouting. So to ease me back in I thought I'd share a few photos.

    Over Summer I ran a Bushcraft experience for 3 groups of 15 Scouts. This was part of a week long camp, where each group of 15 got a 2 day taster on three different sub camps.

    Over the 2 days with me, they lit fires and cooked over them, purified water, learnt how to poo in the woods and signal for help should it all go wrong!

    Base camp...


    The Leaders kitchen, seen from the central fueling point...



    Yours truly teaching water purification...



    The toilet "engaged sign" and hand wash. (The red dry bag contained toilet roll, hand sanitiser and matches...if it was there, the toilet was vacant)
    Animadvertistine, ubicumque stes, fumum recta in faciem ferri

    (Ever noticed how wherever you stand, the smoke goes right into your face?)

    The next few shots are taken from our most recent camp, which took place this weekend. The aim of the camp was mainly learning to cook over a fire, but we had some fun too.

    Early morning, fire just lit...



    Breakfast cooking on our new range...



    Mountain man breakfast...


    Apple crumble anyone?


    Yours truly tomahawk throwing...the release


    ...and follow though...


    My daughter, after releasing the tomahawk for the first time...


    Final meal of the camp, fresh chicken nuggets and chips...


    Hope you enjoyed looking!

    Superb set of photos, absolutely brilliant, esp. the misty early morning one.
    Responsible parents used to world-proof their kids. Now, some shirk this and try to child-proof the world...from Povarian BC-UK forum


    As I seem to be creating controversy, these ramblings are all escaping from my contorted brain and do not reflect my groups opinions yada..yada....yada......
