Bushcraft and Survival
Bushcraft and Survival is something I have always been interested since I was a boy, on my uncle’s farm as a child I spent a lot of time outdoors, rain or shine, cold or warm it was all good. Interest took a bit of a turn when my wife and I were in the lakes for The Bushcraft Show, talking with a scout leader at the show who was part of a SASU called iEAT SCOUT, its Long story but because of that chance meeting we are now part of Bushscout UK NASU and Essex Bushscout SASU and we are both at lots of Bushcraft events throughout the year.
The practical skills alliance!
Bushscout UK are a national community of Scout Leaders who have a passion for teaching traditional and practical Scouting skills to other Scout Leaders. There are many Scout County’s involved in Bushscout, each one is set up as its own team and has a nominated team leader who will co-ordinate local training days as well as communicating with the national alliances.
Outdoor life is a hobby that has had lots of exciting things for me to learn and every time I get the chance there is more to learn.
Bushcraft is a great hobby and I do enjoy both learning new skills and the chance to pass them on.
I am also into Scout Craft, both traditional and modern: Canvas Tents, Navigation by Land, Sea and Air, Radio, Camping, Pioneering, Climbing, Hiking, Kayaking & Canoeing, Sailing, Geocaching, Fishing, First Aid, tomahawk throwing, eletoronics and Scouting has given me me an array of activities and i hope the adventure never ends!
