Hi, everyone. I was talking to a friend on facebook tonight about my dream of starting and running a Bushcraft and Survival School here in New Zealand.
This friend of mine gave me encouragement and told me to go for it, and to follow my dream.So, here we are, the first step on my Journey. I am asking everyone out there in the New Zealand Bushcraft community for advice, encouragement, and for whatever help you can offer me.
Here is a basic start to the what I want to head toward. It is by no means complete, as things will be added and discarded as the dream unfolds.
Identifying and Setting up a Campsite
Basic fire making and preparation
Camp cooking and food preparation
Camp and Personal Hygeine
Camp and Bush First Aid
Hiking for fun and fitness
Preparation and care of boots and equipment
Choosing boots and equipment
Recognizing native flora and fauna
Uses for native and introduced flora and fauna
Kayaking/canoeing (where applicable)
Basic trapping techniques
Care of equipment
Camouflage and Concealment
I'm bound to have left out some things, so if you have any ideas and/or advice, please, let me know.
This is just the start. The two main items I don't have of course are the funds needed to get up and going, and the most important, the land to start my School on. There's going to be some major praying and believing on my part, I can tell you.
So, there we have it. If you want to get on board, you are very welcome. PM me, leave a blog post, or reply via my page. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
