    J, it's about "on demand" for sure. No pre gathered stuff allowed, it has to be done on site and the whole chain has to be completed in one sitting.

    Hey Iz.... So is this entirely separate from the Bushclass?

    Meaning can I use an overnight for the Intermediate class as your solo overnight? As long as it was solo of course.


    Oh....and I'm assuming no Birch for the splitwood fire in the rain?

    This is way cool and I will work on this along with my other classes.

    Inspirational and definitely something for me to strive for. It'll hopefully motivate me to "make" the time necessary to complete the tasks. Complete this and it would be a badge of honor. Thanks for the motivation brother

    Although it's not associated with bushclass you sure can use your tasks interchangeably if you like. No problem there.
    Correct, no birch bark for the s.w.f. in the rain. No "helpers" at all, this it he hardwoodsman tab for crying out loud!

    Good stuff, J. Yeah, it really opens your eyes to exactly how much three times is when you have to build three fires with it. Makes you realize that you usually skimp when you make a fire.

    Thanks for putting this up Iz. This along with the Bushclass is a great set of goals for any person wanting to spend time out in the bush and helps them to prepare mentally for any inconveniences out there. You won't find many armchair bushcrafters on this forum!

    For the navigation bit - would a scan of my mountain leader recommendation or the cover of one of the 3 books I have written on walking in West Wales count?
    There are not many places around these parts that I have not used map and compas to find - and as an Outdoors Skills Instructor I used to teach nav for various outdoor centres around Wales and Northern England....
