When organising your Bushcraft weekend, it is essential to pack the correct clothing.Â Bushcraft clothing shouldÂ keep you both warm and dry. We recommend a good quality base layer followed by hard wearing outer clothing such as Cargo or combat trousers, which are both strong and fast drying. A pair of sturdy boots and a waterproof jacket will also protect you from the elements.
Plastic bags or better still waterproof dry bags will help keep your kit dry, they are also great for keeping some dry tinder for those all important Bushcraft fires.
A good selection of tools as well as a Bushcraft knife will be required in order to make your shelter.

A camping recipe from Bob.
I tried this by accident one night during a Scout campout, and everyone loved it.
Prep Time: 15 minutes
Cook Time: 1 hour, 30 minutes
â€¢1 whole chicken, cut up
â€¢1 cup flour
â€¢ salt and pepper, to taste
â€¢1 teaspoon rosemary
â€¢1 teaspoon thyme
â€¢1 teaspoon poultry seasoning
â€¢1/4 cup oil
â€¢1 can condensed soup, celery or mushroom
Cut up chicken into breasts, legs, thighs, wings and the back.
Mix flour with the spices, salt and pepper. Heat oil in Dutch oven.
Coat chicken with flour mixture and fry in oil until slightly browned. Drain the leftover oil from the Dutch oven.
Arrange all the chicken in the Dutch oven with largest pieces near the bottom and side. Cover with the can of condensed soup of your choice.
Cover with lid and simmer over low heat for about one hour. If using hot coals, ensure that there are enough to keep the Dutch oven hot.
When done remove chicken from the Dutch oven and use some of the leftover juices for a gravy.
