NIBA Weekend Gathering

We spent an enjoyable weekend Bushcrafting at Carnfunnock. Using our new Parachute as our shelter, we were able to welcome lots of old and some new friends to our latest Expedition style camp set in Carnfunnocks beautiful Chaine Wood. Our thanks go to everyone who came along and contributed to a very enjoyable weekend.

    Did you guys know that there are two more bushcraft associations in Europe that followed your example? A Dutch one and a Spanish one. Maybe connect and organizing a Bushcraft Associations Week together?
