Due to the amount of interest show in this meet up, we have decided to move the location to Woodburn Forest, near Carrickfergus, due mainly to the lack of parking space and resources at the site in Tardree. Time is 10am at the main Woodburn car park. Hope to see you there.

Not so bad.  Seven injuries, five hospitalisations, but only four fatalities ;)

Seriously... we built a small A-frame, which turned out nicely, and looked at different fire lighting techniques (bow drilling, flint/steel, and various tinders), and did quite a bit of plant ID.  Good enough use of time for a few hours :)  Alan showed us his hobo stove, and we also checked out a few different blades/tools that people had brought. Pics were taken, but I don't have them, so hopefully someone else will post.
