WE HAVE MADE FIRE!!!!!!!

Recommended Posts

being a nice Saturday morning two of my boys,jack 6 and Ben 4,an i decided to do a bit of bush-craft learning in the woods.with the sun on our backs off we set with the longdog and Collie. we soon arrived and set about finding silver birch tinder and some dry chestnut for kindling.

with the addition of some tallow shavings the tinder soon caught after jacks 5 strikes of the flint,whilst Ben cut kindling.

Looks like the kids were having a great time out there. Too bad more parents dont do that sorta thing with their kids......lots of them too busy playing with electronics and not getting enough activity elsewhere. Those boys looks like they are gonna be heartbreakers when they grow up....Good lookin boys there........... :thumbup:
