Morning has broken. Lakeside at the @BushcraftShow
Some people were up at 5am, up in the woods, tracking. The rest of up had a lie-in.
There’s not many people sleeping under a pile of sticks and leaves. There is all kinds of sleeping tech dotted around the campsite. This morning sees people emerging from military basha’s, roof tents on Land Rovers, Mazda Bongo’s and caravans. I must say that our own setup of camp beds (a first for me) & Thermarest’s in a trecking Lavuu saw me enjoy the best nights sleep outdoors I ever remember having. I woke once & that was because I was too warm in my down sleeping bag. Today will involve the packing up of camp and enjoying more bushcraft related demonstrations and conversations.
The end of our first day on lake Windermere. I’ve snapped pix and grabbed audio. Most of which is still on the devices as there is no 3G here. The highlight for me was getting to spend some time with a childhood hero John ‘Lofty’ Wiseman author of ‘The SAS Survival Handbook’. Top guy & a great story teller.
I’m currently sat at the door of our tent in a little pain as my mate Dave has made the hottest chilli I think I have ever tasted. He says it’s a low tech way of providing gas central heating for the night.
