Bushcraft & Survival Skills Magazine – Issue 70
Welcome to the latest issue of Bushcraft & Survival Skills Magazine. Hopefully you are enjoying the summer, with its mix of weathers and getting plenty of time outdoors.
Whilst the dust has settled on The Bushcraft Show 2017 there is lots of excitement as plans are shaping up for the 2018 event. There is a great line-up of key speaker including Ed Stafford, even more activities, workshops and of course the opportunity to meet up with like-minded people.
This issue of Bushcraft & Survival Skills Magazine is again packed full of inspirational articles, sharing skills and iconic places to visit. Naomi Walmsley shares ‘The Art of Felting’ on page 10 with step by step hints and tips, Lofty Wiseman reviews The Bushcraft Show with more ‘wise’ words. My contribution is some of the best places to canoe (or kayak) around Britain, including day trips to enjoy on page 48. Fraser Christian’s article on ‘Winter Food Preservation’ on page 38 is fascinating stuff. Be prepared whatever the weather with a great article from Tim Gent on ‘The Practicality of Hats’ on page 58.
Sounds good? Well that’s not all. There is a Coastal Survival course review by Iain Nairn on page 74 and ‘How to Restore a Draw Knife’ with Ben and Lois Orford on page 80. Chris Eyles Book Reviews this issue include Megan Hine’s The Mind of a Survivor on page 93.
So, plenty to read, try, and do. Go wander a woodland and awaken your spiritual side, connecting with nature. Enjoy the rest of the summer and look ahead to autumn as the colours change.
