hi simon! I'm british as well. great hear from a fellow countryman! <br>I don't know of that many good retailers myself but I'm starting to look. I wonder if you've been waching ray mears exstream survival? on bbc 2? thersdays at 8 theres only on more in this siers now but he's done a fare few so far so I exspect it wont stop there. check out www.raymears.com he is a bushcraft man through and through. he's been learning since he was a child a and he really knows his stuff. he has some books out as well.<br>-james

Hiya James,<br>Yes i've been watching Ray Mears program on BBC 2 it's really good.He certainly knows his suff! What i find the most interesting is that he has learnt all the survival techniques without having a military background. I must have seen most of his programs even when he was doing a short piece each week for an outdoor program called "Tracks". Where do you practice your techniques? Where do you buy your equipment from? I buy most of mine from the various retailers in the Lake district near to where i live.<br>bye for now<br>Simon
