In the first few days of 2013 we purchased a Frontier Stove and Water Heater from Camping Solutions UK of Redruth in Cornwall. We have been using these great bits of kit over the last few weeks for both fun and on some of our courses with clients and I have to say that we are very impressed and thought that the company and equipment deserved a review on the Kit – Tried and Test section of our Badger Bushcraft Blog.

In this article on the Badger Bushcraft Blog we will show you how we have recently repaired a broken bracket on our 110 Land Rover Defender County. As the repair has worked exceptionally well we've put this in the "Kit - Tried and Tested" section - hopefull we will not need to add a "Land Rover Reapirs We Have Had To Make"!

Sharing bushcraft skills and outdoor experiences with people is a tremendous privilege and so events and courses leave us with precious memories, but the highlight for us has got to watching somebody making their first flame using fire by friction. For some years now, especially when working with large groups and also with younger learners, we have been using a high-tech roller bearing bow drill bearing block.
