Had a great day in the woods with you!!

In-person course

Peter & Jackie welcomed the group into their lovely woods that were just beginning to burst into a bluebell carpet.

I enjoyed the shelter building, water purification, cordage and navigation sessions and
the fire lighting segment was particularly fun, instructive and even, at times, theatrical!

Many thanks to "Explore The Great Outdoors" for a relaxing and informative day amongst the trees.
