"Yes, a root cellar. We've actually been meaning to construct one for some time now, but haven't had a weekend free. It's not an absolute necessity in this circumstance, with most of the food still in the ground, or inside the chickens…"

"Hi Ryan, thanks for your concern. I haven't suffered badly. Lost the chimneys, of course, and a few of the doors are sticky. It appears that the old front entrance of the house has risen an inch or two. It will likely settle in time (or over…"

"Howdy Bill, Being asked to choose between these great treks would typically be quite unreasonable, and I wouldn't be interested in warranting an answer. Too difficult. But, given the time of year (November) and the accompanying late spring…"

"Yeah, those ones are pretty hardcore. Inconspicuous, in light of their toxicity. But if not the greenish tinge, the 'volva' always gives the act away. That's a key point when it comes to poisonous mushrooms in NZ, as the Amanita genus…"

Hey man you still on here?

If you are, just read through a thread where you mentioned something about how your used to climbing up trees for your job. I assumed that probably meant you'd be an arborist.

And to a bowyer, an arborist is a godsend.

Hi, sorry I have been away for the weekend and haven't had a chance until now to check to see if you and your loved ones are ok following the earthquake.

If you have suffered damage or loss please share it with us, as we may be able to help. BushcraftNZ is a community, and like all others we need to band together in troubled times.

I have set up a forum discussion, looking forward to hearing your story
