Fantastic information, and good fun

Welcome welcome! Learn lots from this show and look forward to each episode. Each episode also benefits from repeat listening (or triple listening). Apart from useful advice and tips from the master on a range of subjects, listening to paul spot local wildlife or take a drink, I especially like Paul’s rambles and rants about the “bushcraft” industry, community, kit and the fakers out there...... and of course anyone who dared to call Paul out through social media for not answering quickly enough or to there liking. “Idiots” always makes me laugh. 😂 thanks Paul. I say this as the biggest compliment, you are the Alan partridge of bushcraft!
