My journey to the woods began on Christmas morning with a gift from my wife....and what a great gift! Thanks to Keith, Ruth and Ray for a brilliant day. The time flew by, of course, but the hours were jammed (but never in a hurried way) with so many diverse subjects including....preparing for a day out in the woods...the characteristics of deer fewmets...birch bark preparation for fire lighting....which spirit burner to choose....the signs of ancient woodland...ground appreciation and the arrow tips fired at Crécy and Agincourt! The team are not only passionate about getting out into the woods as often as we can but taking our children out there too.....(my nine year old twins are already begging me for a bow)! Thanks again Keith, Ruth and Ray for such a memorable day. As a footnote...as a paramedic I was with a patient the following day who was receiving a lecture from his neighbour ....'this house is full of bad air..you need to get out to the trees...they are full of good air '.....seems I've heard that recently somewhere else!
