“Things started out with a post about wild food, in particular Rosehips which were used during World War II for their high vitamin C content. The date of that post August 24th 2010. The next two years saw some very interesting developments. Let us celebrate the two year anniversary of Ember Survival”
Two Year Ember Survival Anniversary Highlights

Well first that camera upgrade, a Canon 5Dmkii to bring you HD footage straight from the wilderness. More reviews and trip reports. Expeditions to exotic locations both abroad and at home as well as a few unannounced features – so watch this space! It’s been a wild ride so far and with things only getting started I cannot wait to see what’s around the corner.
A personal thank you to all my staff and anyone who has been generous with their advice or just been there to lend a hand.
