Beachcomber course


I am just heading home from doing a weekend course with Patrick McGlinchey at backwoods survival school.

The weekend was packed full of skills and banter.

We skinned and butchered a Roe deer then cooked some in a raised pit oven. We also smoked some into jerky in a stone smoker we built on the beach.

Other project included making nets, making hooks and line from bone and lime cordage. Building a canoe which we took out to sea and supported 23 stone.

We also gathered lots of crabs and shellfish, which we cooked on the beach.

Pics soon......
