I did something today I've not done for ages - just go out to the woods, have a brew up, and just sit there and take it all in. Seriously. Been ages. Oh yeah, I've been out. But I've been doing other things - photography, a walk, a bike ride, wildlife spotting. That kind of thing. But today I went to some local woods (really nice mix of deciduous and coniferous), fired up the stove, had a brew up (and a sausage and mushroom roll) and just sat there at listened. And that's the point of this thread. What, for you, is the sound of bushcraft? Now, you see, if you'd asked me this before today I probably would have said either the crackling of the fire or maybe the wind in the trees. And I reckon they will be popular responses. Though sitting there today, I realised what the sound of bushcraft was for me. It's the sound of the billy can lid rattling as you check the water. I missed that sound. I heard it again today, for the first time in ages, and I realised that was the sound, for me, that summed it up. So that's my question for you - what is your sound that sums up bushcraft/camping/being outside. Whatever you want to call it. What's your sound?
