Christmas Bushcraft in the Woods 2017/12/30
Heading off to find solitude in nature is to gain truth and
stillness. This Christmas I managed to escape the norm and instead
spend it in reflection sheltered within one of the most wonderful
woodlands in the UK. Christmas Bushcraft will become a yearly
tradition I think.
I did encounter a few strange looks when people asked where I was off to
with a rucksack this time of year. But Christmas Bushcraft is worth
it. I had the whole woodland to myself it felt and nothing but the
animals around me.
A long standing dream of mine to spend
the festive period in nature finally came true this year, in 2017.
I encountered freezing temperatures,
torrential rain and heavy snow which all made for some interesting
weather conditions out in the forest.
