We've all got our views on this: whether its the kit, or the fire, the walking and tracking, the countryside, the wilderness, or the sunsets.
For most of us I suspect that it's a mixture of all of these and lots more, but is there for you one element that stands out as the primary thing that you love about what we do?
I've been thinking about this, especially after email conversations with Jack at Woodland Organics, and have come to the conclusion that for me it's really quite simple...
...it's the woods.
There's something special about woodland that relaxes me, and can put any trouble into a special perspective that makes it not seem so bad anymore. Even the night doesn't cause the fear I've had in the past.The sounds of the modern world are muffled and my senses refocus themselves for a different type of input. My pace naturally slows down and I'm listening for every sound - looking for the tinest of movements... and I'm happy*.
Well, that's me - what about you?
