I rarely ever see the word "bush" used in America to mean the wilderness! Seems with all the survival shows on TV it's becoming a more popular term. Great topic!!

I had no clue either ~ lol carry on I'm not the camping type ~ I was thinking holiday lights for curb appeal ~

I have a couple cookbooks devoted entirely to gathering food from nature. I was always wondering about making acorns useful. There sure are enough of them. But they're quite bitter. I hear they're a good source of energy though I remember being sad as a kid cuz they look so much like a hazelnut but are nothing like them lol

Nice blanket. I checked out their site and the prices aren't bad for what you get.
I have a 100% wool Italian officer's blanket that I bought through surplus about 15 years ago that I wouldn't trade for anything. One of the great things about 100% wool is that even if it gets wet it will still keep you warm. So it is a great addition when sleeping out under the stars.

Default Neck knives

Currently have an inexpensive neck knife but I want to get a nicer one. I really don't know much about them and wondering if anyone can give me a heads up on what to look for on my next one? fyi- The one I currently have has a nylon sheath and it's knife has a 2.5" fixed blade.

I always travel pretty light ...my tent I can put up in less then 8 minutes and it weighs under 5 lbs..my sleeping bag around 18oz, a hunting knife, cup for water, flint, tinder, axe, extra socks, first aid kit, bug spray, water straw, a small skillet and I limit myself to less then 5 lbs of food stuffs. All in all about 17lbs plus the weight of pack. Very manageable. When I was camping a lot my pack was always waiting for me to sling on my shoulder and I was off. Packing and clearing campsite under 40 minutes-and I can go lighter-in an emergency

I like camping but no longer enjoy roughing it to the same extent, quite the way I used to when young. I was supoosed to go as part of a group, with my sons and some other people, but one got a promotion/is now working rotating days off, split shifts, overtime - his schedule is a nightmare mess. My other started a new job and though he has weekends off his car is older - he dosen't dare risk having a breakdown/missing a day while still doing his orientation. If he missed time during his probabtionary period even his union couldn't save him, he'd be let go immediatly. I'm not released to drive yet, so can't go alone and don't know the others going well enough to ask for even a ride, let alone saddle them with abruptly cutting their plans short, to race me to the ER should an emmergancy come up. I think I just might treat myself to a staycation. Even if only for a couple days mid week - breakfast bar, room service, spa tub, bezillion cable TV channels, pool, hot stone massage, which I've always wanted to try but never have...

I'd be very interested in what folks consider essential with reagrd to camping, and also any tips for any particularly lightweight equipment. I'd add that I'm in the UK, and the kind of camping I mean means turning up at a campsite where you pay for a spot to pitch your tent, and there are generally at least basic amenities (toilet plus tap) on site. Last time it was more like turning up at a hotel where all you had to do was provide your own room! Yes, I'd love to experience the wilderness kind, but, sadly, that's no longer realistic for me.

Because I can't drive, when I've gone camping in the past, I tended to pile everything onto a folding porters trolley that I bought, and lug that around by train and taxi to and from the camping site. Finding that a bit heavy though (ironically, the porters trolley itself is fairly heavy!), last time I tried using a couple of shopping trolleys instead, to split the load. which was an improvement.

To avoid possible confusion I mean this kind of thing: http://www.lakeland.co.uk/25438/Easy...olding-Trolley

- not the four-castor things one uses in a supermarket! 8-}

But due to health/strength considerations, I now need to see if I can get that down to a single such trolley plus no more than 2-3 kgs carried. I'm good living off simple rations, and stuff you can just add water to, even if cold, for a few days, if need be. Any advice?
