After working up an appetite making fires, we were all pretty excited to be tucking into a huge campfire BBQ thanks to @marksandspencer.

Fire lighting with ferry rod #bushcraft #camping #firelighting #survival
No rest for the Wolf this weekend... got back from Sweden late Thursday night, had Friday to sort kit and get ready to run a great β€œlads and dads” weekend at our beautiful #kent Basecamp. A great weekend of #shelterbuilding #firelighting #knifeskills #carving #archery #knifethrowing #axethrowing #cooking and #camping and of course the now famous #Blackwolfsurvival group pose 😎
Steel strikers have arrived. Really good quality and nicely presented. Hand forged from Sweden. #flintandsteel #firelighting #bushcraft
Experimenting with the shape of the notch for the bow drill. I wanted to try a triangular shaped notch which is closed at the top so that drilling in the divot creates a hole in the hearth through which the ember can form and be ignited. -
It works quite well and its use makes sense to me. However, carving such a triangular notch is more difficult than a standard notch. -
Has anyone else tried different shapes for the notch and how’s your experience?

Update: so today I walked three miles around the woods, removed a lot of rubbish. The large portion of it were baby wipes, and tissues. I found a few old cans, and a lot of dog poo bags. Here's an idea, if you go into the woods, take your litter out with you. To all the people leaving baby wipes, if it wasn't for the woods, your little baby wouldn't exist. Stop littering, or fuck off out of the woods. 
Thank you.

LIT! πŸ”₯πŸ”₯I only went and made fire!!! #firelighting #wildfire #weputthefireinwildfire #fire #robynshendo
...Naa then firebugs !
.
...There's always a breeze where I stay in the UK. Its in a position where three valleys meet & the prevailing winds get funneled down them. Some days its not too bad but yesterday was really gusty so I wanted to test myself against it since its beat me so many times when I've been out practicing my fire lighting.
.
...I climbed to the top of a limestone knoll nearby that had been quarried out years ago. It was pretty exposed & the wind was hitting me from all directions. I had had a piece of lime wood for the hearth & I used the notchless or keyhole technique where you drill straight into the hearth with one divot then drill right next to it so the second hole overlaps the other & the ember forms in the adjacent hole. My thinking was that this recess would offer some protection , which it did.
.
...I soon had an ember but transferring it proved to be a challenge. The first one just got blown away instantly so the second time I lit a slice of amadu to eliminate that problem & once the glowing fungus was in the nest of beech curls with redwood bark getting a flame was no problem. Mission accomplished I was straight back down the hill & off back to my trailer for a hot brew.
.
...Ciao 4 now firebugs ! .

It's fucking beautiful. New patch to go on my urban camo bomber survival jacket. Along with an improvised medi kit, patch light red, and now this patch. It's becoming a beautiful coat. Plans for the weekend?

...Ey up firebugs !
.
...Just a quick clip of my trek down the river to practice hand drilling the other day showing the patch of coppiced hazel I took a spindle from & otter tracks on the banking. Have'nt seen any signs of otters for years on this river so this was an encouraging sight.

Chamaenerion angustifolium cordage, I have a lot of practice needed to do with cordage, camp craft has never appealed to me, I don't see a point in making a spoon in the wilderness. Anyhow, cordage has many uses. I'm happy for any advise people can give me as my skills set with this is a start. Good  cordage twisting techniques?! Anything is useful information for me! On a side note, what is your opinion on camp craft? Do you see a point? Or do you not? Why?  #bushcraft #survival #forest #backpacking #offgrid #adventure #hikelife #botany #prepping #zombie #plants #rescue #nature #bowdrill #axe #knife #firelighting #instagood

Made some charcloth. Best quick firelighter to take camping #bushcraft #firelighting #fire
...Aw reet firebugs !
.
...No work yesterday so I'd planned to get out for a walk down the river. It was raining lightly but I was hoping it would pass. Three miles downstream & the rain wasn't letting up so I stopped under a over hanging alder tree that offered a bit of cover.
.
...I passed a clump of coppiced hazel on the way so I cut a straight shoot that I could use as a host spindle with some burdock I had in my pack. I cut a slice off my horses hoof bracket to catch the coal & extend the ember should I get one then spliced the end of the hazel & pushed a short pointed piece of burdock into it then bound it tight with some cord, made from Malayan cherry bark.
.
...After a little bending to tweek it straight I started drilling. I missed on the first attempt but with a tad more pushing managed to get it on my second try. Once the slice of fungus was glowing nicely I transferred it to a nest of hazel curls & blew it to a flame.
.
...I'm starting to use a fungus coal catcher more & more now the good weather has passed & once its going it really belts some heat out & only gets hotter the more you blow it which helps drive any residual moisture there might be inΒ  your tinder bundle so it has a double benefit.
.
...Si thi soon firebugs ! .

There are more survival gimmicks out there than you can shake a stick at! We try to emphasis the f-u-n in functional, but never gimmicky. What do you think?

Wow!  This mini firesteel necklace from @wazoosurvivalgear actually works! πŸ˜„ I didn’t know if something so small was actually workable, but there you go!  These feathersticks lit up after a few strikes.  Do you carry a mini firesteel with you as a backup?  How small will you go? πŸ˜ƒβ €

These are not traditional Bushcraft knives, but in terms of survival knife, they are probably the most rugged and well built of all, but sadly, the real thing have been out of production for at least 10 years and these were the very last to leave the now closed factory. Inside the full-tang handle there is a slot for the survival kit and hidden inside the sheath is brass snare wire - all still boxed and as new!

Today’s Gift of the Wild programme included children from 5 different schools across #gateshead - coming together to enjoy a day in the outdoors. I know I m relatively new to being a #forestschool practitioner but this was the closest I’ve come to running a truly child led session. It just worked today. So much creativity, so much imaginative play and so many new friends made. The older ones were great role  models  to the younger ones round the fire  and they also made a new rope swing for others to enjoy, everyone helped make lunch and we are together. Suzanne, Emma and I saw real support, friendship, appreciation and teamwork in action - and they all left us feeling more confident in themselves and in their abilities than when they arrived. Thanks to the players of the #nationallottery for supporting us and @stompinggroundsne to run this programme for kids who have been having a difficult time recently #forestschool #outdoorlearning #campfire #firelighting #ropeswing #confidence #resilience

...Ow ya fettlin firebugs ?
.
...After seeing @nwprimate 's #cordagechallenge post the other day I thought I'd better get out there & give it a go.
.
..I've never tried conifer roots as a bowdrill cordage before. I've seen it done by others online so I set this as my challenge.
.
..There's quite a lot of mixed conifer woodland around me planted by the forestry commission mainly comprising of larch, spruce, fir & pine. The larch roots seemed a little too brittle & the pine roots I could get to had far too many bends in them to be useable but when I started digging round the spruce trees I started finding long straight roots that seemed ideal. .
..I ripped a few lengths out & rigged a piece up in a bow & went to work on a sycamore hearth with a hazel spindle. My first couple of attempts resulted in a snapped cord but undeterredΒ  I pressed on & soon I had the feel for it. The next attempt resulted in a false ember so I went at it again with a bit more speed & this time I got my coal.
.
..Not as difficult as I had imagined & for a relatively unprocessed natural cord I was quite impressed. If you've never tried using natural cordage maybe this would be a good starting point as it only needs the thin outer skin rubbing off & its ready to go though, I didn't even do that on this occasion & it still worked.
.
..Get out & have bash firebugs..
.
...Ciao 4 now

One of the many embers produced over the weekend at the 53Β° North festival in Wicklow last week. An excellent festival of outdoor pursuits with an awesome bunch of people. Simon #bushcraft #bushcraftdotie #backwoods #bowdrill #livingwildernessbushcraft #53degreesnorth #firelighting
It's a family affair! Kicking off the week with another bushcraft session where everyone gets to try their hand at fire lighting around the fire circle. πŸ‘ͺπŸ”₯Great skills to learn so you can practice on your own campfire while staying with us! β›Ί 😊

All age groups like fire lighting.. I’ve had children as young as 4 lighting fires using a ferro rod and birch bark. Fire is safe if you learn to respect it. #firelighting #bushcraft #childrensbushcraft
