A nice afternoon

Not a bad place to spend the afternoon.  Listening to the trickle and tumble

Bush pipe

I was sitting still and decided to make this bush pipe from birch and a burbock stem. All carving done with a knife. Stem cleaned out with bamboo. Sealed bowel to stem with pine resin. I smokes a little dried yarrow to test her. Smokes like a dream. the yarrow is smooth and aromatic and has numerous health benefits. 

Next time I will make the stem longer as the smoke is a bit hot when you get towards the end. 

I got this design from a guy called mitch who has a great you tube channel called native survival. 

Cheers

Butchering a Fallow deer.

The deer was enough to feed 13 people by way of a ground oven and stew.

Debris hut in heavy rain

This debris hut was built and used over the weekend.  The occupant sealed the door and kept dry all night through very heavy rain. He said he was actually too warm. Well done keith.

Solo survival challenge

Clinton came to us wanting to do the solo survivor challange. We knew he could cope so we said yes.

This is the first in a series of 8. Enjoy and leave a comment for him.
