Thanks Willie I'm really looking for decent locations rather than club, businesses etc, although that link is useful thanks. I just want to go do it and learn as I go. Just need to know there's a decent forest who don't mind fire lighting, shelter buildings etc

Hi Davina.


You could try having a word with local farmers, explain what you want to get up too and offer an extra watchful eye while you are out and about.
Explain you would only use fallen wood for fires and shelter building, and would have a contained fire at all times.
You do not need a huge wood to get out and enjoy, even a small cope would do.
Might be worth preparing a disclaimer too, explaing that you would be on the land at your own risk with no come backs on the land owner should you suffer an injury of any kind.
Take it with you every time you visit a potential land owner, and have a copy ready for him.....just in case.
Could even prepare a standard letter and post a few away to local farmers, include a stamped addressed envelope and of course a contact number for yourself.
Keep the letter brief, if they open up on 6 pages they may not be to keen on reading it:D
Another tack would be to contact sellers of woodland in your area, offer to do some work in exchange for the use of the woodland.

Please keep us up to speed on your progress, it would be nice to hear some good news.:thumbsup:

GOOD LUCK!!!

As Greenbear says.....take time out to tell us a bit about yourself in the introductions section.
