... Ow ya fettlin firebugs !
.
...I fancied a bash with my rocks last night. .
...Got a nice leather pouch given  off @simon_outdoors at the @thebushcraftshow  in May. I keep my Iron pyrites, flint & fungal spark tinder in it. Thanks for that Simon 👍
.
...It was a kit very similar to this that they found on Otzi the ice man. Fungus played a big part in fire lighting back then & a piece of amadu or ganoderma was a vital part of any fire lighting kit then.
.
... I was using some ganoderma bracket fluffed up to catch a spark cast off the iron pyrites. This is one of my favourite primitive techniques & it really gives you the feel of what it must of been like back then. Proper caveman stuff. .
... Catch ya soon guys..

Privileged to have such a lovely spot to enjoy the setting sun. Tonight another bunch of great guys and gals came to learn a few new tricks and hang. 
Always rewarding to see skills pass from me to another and the enjoyment that brings. 
Thanks to @growingwildfm

I've returned home dirty, smelly and with dodgy hair! But with a big smile on my face and brimming with ideas & enthusiasm after a brilliant three days in the woods in Oxfordshire on the Woodland Ways IOL bushcraft competency course.
Now to put everything into practice... Rachel 😊

Tinder!

It's always helpful to carry some extra dry tinder when out on a trek or a hike.

This transparent watertight box seems perfectly suited for the task. It's lightweight, stormproof, can carry enough tinder to last for a month, and its slim rectangular profile makes it a perfect fit for a bugout bag.

Throwback to having a little fun with a bottle of Lycopodium powder, gathered from the spores of various moss plants. Often used in special effects and magic tricks and therefore has become a popular addition to our fire lighting demos. #bushcraft #firelighting #naturalworld #fire #spore #staghornmoss #firemagic #specialeffects #outdoors #woodsman
Recently did some reading about the science of fire.  Learnt that combustion results when fuel is heated to a point when it releases gases.  And it’s these gas molecules that then mix with oxygen to produce light (the flame we see), water vapour, heat, carbon dioxide, etc.  The heat released creates a chain reaction, heating up more fuel and releasing more combustible gases that in turn also ignite.  And so the fire gets hotter.  How cool, right!? 😄  Ironically, looking into to the science behind fire, it now seems even more miraculous than before! 😂#BushcraftNerd

...Naa then firebugs !

...Hand drill practice down on the rubber land. .
...The amount of times I've done this you'd think I'd be starting to find it easy by now but I still end up with my hart pounding every time.
.
...This all Malayan cherry set is about the easiest combo I've found out here so far. I'm sure there are other materials that are easier but they still elude me so meantime I've just got to crack on & make do with what I've got.
.
...Still at least it's keeping me fit..

Teaching some firelighting skills tomorrow. Quickly handled some firesteel rods and couldnt resist removing the protective covering with the dremel. 
They are functional rather than pretty...😉

King Alfred Cake (Daldinia Concentrica to be Latin about it 🤓) fungal growths are often found on dead Ash wood. 🌳
Once black and dry, they make a great fire lighter. Scrape the surface with a fire steel and then strike to get a spark to ignite and blow gently to feed it until it is self sufficient.
We also used magnifying glasses to direct sunlight to start them off. 🔥
They looked so beautiful once they started burning... like a glowing beating heart ❤

Thanks @greenlighttrust
For the great training.

It’s not just about shooting them in the head.
The REAL Zombie Apocalypse will require skills in fire lighting, shelter building, foraging, archery and… er drinking?
Lucky for you we’ll have hands on training in all the above at this The Late Shift event. 
That and a truck load of zombies.

Lighting the torches around the resort is a daily ritual our team and valued guests are fond of. This also happens at the exact same time the sun sets over our horizon. Catch us here every evening at 6.30pm at our Kama beachfront.

....Ey up firebugs !
.
... So will these tropical cramp balls catch a spark ?......Well yes they will...In fact they're just as good as  the ones in the UK.  They just need to be dead & dry then once they catch they burn hot & fast like the regular ones.
.
...Some of the brackets will work but generally need processing in some way first but these little beauties can be picked & used straight away, if they're dry, without any processing at all.
.
...They also work great in fire pistons too & are an excellent way to extend those small hand drill embers............ A great addition to any tinder box
.
....Catch ya soon guys !

“What can being at Birkheads Wild today teach us about living in the Stone Age?” I asked the Neptune class at Washingwell School today... we learnt how to light the campfire using natural resources, ground wheat to make flour and cooked bread sticks on our fire, we made throwing arrows and hunted a wooden deer, played ‘spear the fish’ game with my real spear (a massive hit), used Stone Age tools to make pottery and built a nomadic tribe shelter. Being here taught them how hard it is to fish with a spear, about how difficult life was, and how you had to be prepared and know about your resources and that it’s hard work to make your own shelter and own food. Sounds like good learning to me #outdoorlearning #forestschool #stoneage #flint #hunting #firelighting #socialenterprise #gateshead #schooltrip

Charring punk wood and bracket fungi in a tinder tin. -
I wanted to experiment with charring in an open tin which is simply closed at the end to extinguish the fire and which hopefully results in a mixture of charred materials ready to catch a spark from flint and steel. 
For the tinder bundle in the tin I used cedar bark shavings that are great for fire lighting from an ember. The punk wood and brackets were next to it in the tin and I put further pieces of the punk wood on top of the ember during the charring. After about ten minutes I simply closed it and I think about half or more of the materials inside are charred. Next time I’ll let it catch a spark to see how well the open char tin worked.

...After the pomegranate spindle failed to produce a viable ember I made a feather stick out of it to use with a hand drill ember last night.
.
...Well the first ember I put in it barely even got the bundle smoking then went out so I had to get back down & spin another one up. .
...The second one didn't fare much better either so on the third attempt I gave it another couple of passes to build  a decent sized coal but this pomegranate wood  just didn't want to play.
.
...So three embers & three failed attempts at blowing them to flame was enough for my already tender hands.............. After that I resorted to my gas lighter to get the the job finished............... .. Sometimes that's just the way it rolls.

...Catch ya soon guys

Lighting a one match fire on a windy day in 20x fast motion. Birchbark, kindling, larger sticks, large sticks, strike the match and cup it to protect it from the wind until the wood of the match is burning well. Then, shielding it from the wind as much as possible, put it to the thin pieces of birch bark. .

...Ey up firebugs !
.
... Sometimes it just seems like everything is hard work & no matter how hard we try things things just don't go our way.
.
...The pomegranate tree next to the tilapia tank got killed by termites while I was away & needed replacing so chopped it down & made a bow drill set out of it to see how it would fare.
.
...I knew from the off it would be a bit of a challenge as it was pretty dense wood & a thumb nail indentation test barely left a mark.
.
...The burn in seemed to take forever & after I cut the notch & eventually got a small pile of dust forming I could see it was comprised of thin spiky pieces of char. I know from experience that this sort of dust can be a pain to ignite but I persevered .
.
...Ten minutes later & two snapped cords I could see it just wasn't going to happen so I abandoned the drilling & gave the pile a flash with the ferro rod. It caught the spark straight away & after I piled it up & it slowly smoldered away for over 5 minutes.
.
..Anyway at least I can cross pomegranate off the useful friction fire wood list....
.
...Ciao 4 now guys...

It’s Monday! Which only means one thing...GYMNASTICS. Week 2 of BMU drills! •
#cfgymnastics #crossfit #drills #bmu #firelighting #teambuilding @cfgymnastics
Just over a year ago I didn’t really know what a flint and steel was #shelteredlife. I’m now a proud owner of 2 well-used ones and last week I even baked one
.
I love making cakes that don’t look like cakes. I love helping at Forest School
.
This special bake was for a fab Forest School Leader on his milestone birthday
.
(Some pics from the decorating process in my stories)

Just over a year ago I didn’t really know what a flint and steel was #shelteredlife . I’m now a proud owner of 2 well-used ones and last week I even baked one . I love making cakes that don’t look like cakes. I love helping at Forest School . This special bake was for a fab Forest School Leader on his milestone birthday . (Some pics from the decorating process in my stories) . . . . #flintandsteel  #bushcraftskills  #bushcraft  #forestschool  #firelighting  #learningoutdoors  #calledtobecreative  #bakestagram  #thebakefeed  #amateurbaker  #homebaking  #outdoorlearning  #fondantart  #calledtobecreative  #lovetobake  #forestschooleducation  #childrenoftheforest  #outdooradventures  #outdoorclassroom 
Another amazing weekend in the wild 💚✌️
------------------
This time we decided to try out a bushcraft weekend...the no showers, compost toilet type of camping 🙈
------------------
An absolutely amazing experience, with a great bunch of people! We learnt to carve, light fires in a bunch of ways and all about our surroundings. I think I'm still far from being able to thrive in the wild, but I reckon survival is possible 😂
-----------------
Gary is a fab teacher and so knowledgeable about all things bushcraft. The food was delicious too - thanks Nicola!

Check out @jack_raven_bushcraft for a bunch of experiences and re-connect with the wild 🌲✌️

A wet and wild morning @fortitudefitnesscentre this morning. Team work really is the name of the game - and they aced it! •

I don't think I've ever properly introduced myself. I'm Jo and I seek an adventurous, unplanned lifestyle combining my love of travel with Adams love of bushcraft. .
.
Outdoor adventure is our thing and something we intend to have a lot more of over the coming years. .
.
Yesterday I sold my car and our house is on the market. We are giving away or selling around 90% of our possessions to maximise our capacity to live life to the full. .
.
Adam heads to Canada for 3 1/2 months from December to live in a hot tent in the middle of the wilderness in Ontario. I'll be holding the fort until he gets back home. It will be my turn next!
.
.
.
That's a bit about us... who are you that follows us?? It would be good to hear from you.... .

...Naa then firebugs !
.
...So here's how I attach flat braided cord to the bow so it runs smoothly. This method actually works  well with any natural cordage.
.
...Just cut a slit in each end of the bow just wide enough to accommodate the thickness of the cord . ........Then tie a simple knot in one end of the cord slide it into the slit pull it up till the knot stops against the bow. ....Now pull the cord down the bow & place the spindle over the cord at an angle of approximately 40 degrees. ....... Next hold the spindle at that angle with one hand the wrap the cord around the spindle & make sure the coils aren't touching with the other hand then pull cord the down to the end of the bow, slide it through the slit & wrap the rest of the cord around the end . You can tie it off with a simple clove hitch or simply hold it tight with your bowing hand holding the spindle with your pointy finger & your thumb till you get in position.
.
..Wrapping the bow round at an angle will keep bow pointing up when you start bowing keeping the coils separate so they don't rub against each other & the double wrap gives you more grip but you could wrap the cord the opposite way round the spindle so the bow angles down which some people prefer. I prefer bowing upwards personally but try it both ways to see which way feels more comfy for you.
.
...Start bowing with slow short strokes at first till the cord beds in the ad it stretches grab it with your pointy finger to keep the tension on & slowly increase the length of your strokes. When the dust pile is big enough increase the speed pressure until it's smoking freely...................Job done....
.
...Get them spindles spinnin firebugs...
.
....Si thi soon...

Some newly inspired pirate influenced fire steels just added to the website. We definitely have taken a bit of inspiration from Pirates of the Caribbean ☠️😂 and despite this being our 18th day in a row working 🙄😴😱😳😊 we managed to spare a few hours this afternoon to add a few bits to the website, can't believe how empty it looks.... Eeeeeekkkk 😱... With apologies to our customers, we hope to be able to add more stock next week but this weekend we badly need a much needed break 😎😎😎😎.... 😴😴😴😴😴 Have a great weekend everyone 🙏🙏🙏🙏 #firelighting #fire #firesteel #traditionalfirelighting #traditionalskills #flintandsteel #firesteel #firesteelporn #leather #leatherwork #leathercraft #handmade #bushcraft #survival #larps #cosplay #pirates #beaverbushcraft #sharkdesignsleather

...Ey up firebugs !
.
...Trying out new type of cordage today made from strips of the basal stem of a foxtail palm frond that had been soaked overnight. .
...For this type of material I like to use the fold over flat braid. It is quick to process this way & as you stretch it each strand tightens up against each other making a very strong cord.
.
...Personally I like to make a length at least as long as from my nose to the tip of my fingers with my arm outstretched. This gives me enough to wrap round either my hand or the end of the bow plus if it did break there should be enough length to join it & still be useable. .
...Once I've reached the desired length I let it dry slowly in the shade & once or twice I wrap it round a smooth round piece of wood & work it up & down to loosen the fibres & tighten it up..
.
...the only thing is you end up with a thin flat cord that whilst strong hasn't got the same versatility as a round cord & will need to be attached & used in a specific way to drive a bow drill so it doesn't rub against itself & break. .
...I'll give you a demo on how I do that tomorrow... meantime....
.
.....take it easy guys..

My senior scouts met their challenge to build water in order to make tea.  Using a billy-can hung from a lashed tripod.  After the twine melted on the first go, they were taught how to make the convenient hanger. (Boiling in the water.... Rose hips)

The view from outside one of the cabins located at our remote arctic base camp. At the end of each exhilarating day of training you will return to the warmth and comfort of the base camp to enjoy a traditional Swedish wooden sauna, a hearty meal and a few shots of the local tipple. 
Our 2019 Arctic Adventure is far more than a trip, more than a few days in the snow, it is a life changing experience that you will share with like minded people. Friendships will be made that will last a lifetime as you work together to thrive in your surroundings.

Don’t worry no previous experience necessary, you will be taught everything by the very best as former soldiers from both the UK and Swedish Elite Forces guide you through the techniques and procedures required to survive in this, the last great wilderness.
Places are limited so check out the details of the adventure on our website. #adventure #survival #arctic #campfaravid #specialforces #elite #pathfinders #moose #sauna #huskys #snowmobiles #firelighting #coldskills #operationmayhem #xplatoon #reindeer #icehotel #snowshoes #skiing #pulk @steveheaneymc

Birch bark and pinecones are great natural firestarters. Birch bark is easily lit with a Ferrocerium rod and because of the flammable pitch in the pinecone, it burns hot and long.

Light up the fire ... it’s amazing what a few surrounding lights can do to make a new fire sparkle. Stockton 5 Coal Effect has fire.
