well that was a very unusual and varied meet!
it made a nice change from our usual meets and itinery, and especially so when 'normal' people ventured the muddy paths to peer at the primitives.
in fairness they were genuinely interested in what we were up to, and they came by the dozens!, it was a pleasure to see our guys impart their knowledge in such a friendly and patient way. (Lee?) i think karl and Co did a fine job with the various fire starting methods, our visitors seemed very impressed. i think we may have a few converts and future 'crafters too.
the farm celebrations were well recieved by some of our guys, especially the beer tent! they staggered or crawled back in the early hours, well exept one, he never made it back at all untill the morning
special thanks to luckylee for bringing in all the basic tools to demonstrate a sheath making tutorial, i can see why his work is top notch, he's very particular!.
thanks to one and all for your support at North Wood
anyway, here i am waffling away,heres a few pics ...
