I’ve always been fascinated with the great outdoors, and specifically; survival and bushcraft skills.

I was fortunate to have a wonderful upbringing in the North West of England and most weekends were spent in The Lake District where I camped, hiked, mountain-climbed and tried to push myself as much as I could.

I was also lucky to go to a great secondary school with an amazing teacher who took classes out on the weekends to do some pretty cool and amazing things; rock-climbing, abseiling, gill-scrambling, orienteering, camping, mountain-biking – you name it, at one point we probably did it.

My sense of adventure continued through my later years and at any and every opportunity I’ve gone bush. ┬áThere really isn’t anything better for the mind, body and soul than to get out into the middle of nowhere and become part of nature again.

I’m no expert, but I have learned a great amount over the years, and the wonderful thing about bushcraft is that you are always constantly learning. ┬áThis blog is about giving something back to anyone who reads it, and hopefully inspiring others to go bush too.
