Our good chum Alan made the trek up to see us today and we had a nice wee time practising and chatting about bushy techniques and kit..I collected some resin to start the fire..
Gathered in a dry hogweed stem,the resin to be the accelerant and the hogweed to be the initial fuel, however Alan had set himself a challenge to get a fire with a single match, which can be a tricky scenario
He'd gathered a nice bundle of spruce twigs and put the flame to it
The flame well established he added dry hogweed and dead nettle stems and successfully completed his personal challenge.
He also made some very nice Bannock, very tasty indeed!!
A little impromptu tracking produced some great badger tracks
and finished the day practising knots and tarp set ups, good fun all round!!
