Watch the sunrise with a cup of Joe heated over an open fire. Spend the morning chopping firewood and foraging for food, and the afternoon fishing for dinner. Savour the taste of a fresh meal grilled over a fire that you prepared. Test your knowledge of plants, birds and insects. Have a go at whittling wood. Or try purifying your drinking water. The forest is yours to explore. So go wild and make every moment count.
The number one rule of bushcraft is to be prepared, but you also need to pack light and only take what you need. Essentials include a tent or shelter, an axe for chopping wood, a sleeping bag, fire starter and light. You’ll also need pans for cooking and a cup and plate. In summer, a hammock with mosquito is a great, lightweight alternative to a tent. If you’re camping out of season or in a cold climate, make sure your sleeping bag is warm enough.
