Going, going, gone...
It is hard to believe that the year has passed so fast, the animals are busy making ready for the winter months, trees and bushes are proudly showing off their array of fruits and berries and winter will be soon upon us… So on that note, if you fancy sitting out on a nice sunny autumnal day and getting stuck into one of our craft projects why not make your own ‘Christmassy bowl’, Jon Ridgeon guides you through the steps on page 8, capture those red, orange and yellow autumnal colours for the one you love and present them with a maple leaf rose, in our ‘leaf art’ feature on page 82 and if the lure of all the shop displays are stirring thoughts of Christmas gifts take a look at our Bushcraft Christmas Gift Guide on page 66 for some ideas.
Last issue we spoke about bringing some colour into the mix, see what one of our readers got up to when following Jason Ingamells’s article on natural pigment p7. We also introduced some colour into your kit bag with our Bushcraft Branded range and in this issue see the new seasonal colours of the Kupilka campware range, exclusive to us this Christmas; what takes your fancy on page 12?
Should you stray off the beaten track this winter, Perry McGee talks about one of the most effective and proven signaling methods, the heliograph on p42. Geoffrey Guy shows how much young children can gain from being involved with all aspects of bushcraft on p16 and Paul Kirtley shares ten bushcraft skills for the winter months. What will you eat for Christmas dinner? See p24. And if you have got itchy fingers, Ian Nairn shares his Bushcraft on a Budget Christmas decoration projects on page 34, bed down with Perry McGee in a natural bivvy bag p30 and cast your vote on our proposed new format for the magazine on page 22.
Lofty Wiseman will entertain you on p28 with another of his wonderful stories and Asa Hardy-Brownlie shares how his bushcraft dreams came true on p56. Tim Gent takes us on an adventure around the West coast of Scotland on p58 and Ben & Lois Orford teach us how to make a stacked handle p44. Lisa Fenton educates us about the American Frontiersmen p72 and I share my tracking training with David Scott-Donellan p78.
