Hi, I’m Richard (AKA Rich59).
Fenlander asked me if I would be interested in helping with some guest contributions to his blog. More than glad to help mate if I can pass on anything of use! I come to bushcraft as a townie looking to escape when I can and for as long as possible.
Leading a local scout group for a while got me back into contact with nature and the rewards of learning and passing on basic skills. Whilst I am completely sold on all things bushcraft I seem especially to have been exploring (so far) making
and using fire,
the atlatl (forerunner of the bow and arrow),
Recently watching the TV series and reading the book “Survivors” has got me thinking about managing land to provide for my needs.
Oh, and Fenlander wanted you to know that he rates me very highly, that I have taught at BushcraftUK meetings and Fenlander’s stamping ground near Newmarket and with my local scout troup, have written a number of tutorials, and that I was part of a primitive skills camping trip the winter Norwegian mountains last year.
