What are your Bushcraft/Wildcamping aims and objectives for the New Year?

Have you set yourself any goals or tasks/skills that you feel you need to brush up on or would like to learn?

As far as kit goes........is there anything you would like to add or remove.....maybe exchange?

To include..... Shelter...cooking........sleeping......water carry......tools/knives etc.

I think everyones wish would be to get out more... and for longer :)

Hi, Matt.

Sounds like a good plan.
I may thin the Bushcraft/Wildcamping kit down a bit as well.
Not carrying as much on my back these days..... so the larger packs I have are not needed now.
The Slumit tent will definately stay.....I will sell the others and the larger tarps.

On the longer meets 5 days plus.....we tend to chuck the kit in the back of the cars anyway.

Would like to get a few overnighters on the go locally.

All good fun ;)

Well my plan is to go local and go light, water being the heaviest thing so plan on how much will I need for a given period. Unlike most of you I also have to plan around a small dog

Been toying with the idea of a 2 day hike/wildcamp in Snowdonia and maybe one to the lake district. Also planning a trip to Scotland some time in the new year was thinking of doing the West Highland way...

Also plan on venturing into some new areas in search of camp sites

Create an online blog, telling my story and journey into Bushcraft / Wildcamping.

Get my Mountain bike kitted out, for trips.

Generally keep getting out, exploring new places.
