NCFE Bushcraft Extreme Survival Level 2 & 3 2015/06/09
The first week of June I took off to the Scottish Highlands to put my
bushcraft skills to the test as well as study for the NCFE Bushcraft
Level 2 and 3.
The group met in Dalwhinnie, one of the coldest towns in Scotland. This
was for the initial brief before we started our walk in to start
the NCFE Bushcraft course. The plan was to stay and live in
mountainous woodland for a week and learn bushcraft and survival skills
along the way.
We did some excellent hiking through
some interesting routes. Navigational exercises were part of the
training. We certainly counted a lot of steps over the week.
Its one thing knowing a skill. Being
able to put it into practise far from home in challenging weather
conditions is another. Fire lighting to knife skills to trapping and
game preparation we covered a broad range of skills and knowledge.
