    Maybe we could organise a combined BCUK/SOTP meet along the lines of the Loch Achray one but south of the border.
    I Started out with nothing! and i still have most of it left.

    I have access to woodland. I am just trying to sort out the parking for people with canoes.

    The current situation would not be secure for the boats. I am working on it though.

    Wayne - If you ever have a chance to come to Cape Breton I'd love to take you up on your offer. I too, teach a wide range of "wilderness living skills" as an aspect of our business, but to turn down an opportunity to learn and share with you would be just plain nutty!!

    I spoke with Adi today he sends his best wishes. You may well get some visitors. Although I am not sure what I will be able to teach you. a few nights sharing a fire would be cool.

    I would go to the first ever Cape Breton SOTP meet! I could almost paddle the whole way there. My "bushcraft" skills may be considered a bit too cave man era though.

    Lloyd, cave man/paleo bushcraft skills are what many of us are striving towards. All the more modern stuff is just to help us get there.

    Before I met Angela I was happy to sleep in a hole in the ground, now I guess we are into "outdoor living". If the women are not happy, nobody is happy. Modern stuff has some real advantages, but knowledge is real easy to carry on a portage.

    I have to carry more kit when out with my wife. Although a little bit of luxury is sometimes rather nice.

    I run an outdoor education charity, would be interested in organising canoe training in exchange for some bushcraft training for staff. I live in Chichester, where are you based.
