In juni 2019 heb ik de bushcraft basiscursus gevolgd in het ruige Finland. Een prachtig gebied met moeras, bos en meren waar je in volledige stilte van de natuur kunt genieten. Onder begeleiding van twee ervaren instructeurs hebben we de vaardigheden die nodig zijn voor een leven in de de natuur uitvoerig behandeld. Het tempo was prettig en er was voldoende tijd om te oefenen. Maar ook er op uit met een rugzak en overnachten in een typisch Finse blokhut aan een meer was onderdeel van de cursus. Ik heb er veel van geleerd en daarnaast ook nog veel gelachen. Rick en Miko dank voor dit mooie avontuur.

Afgelopen juni heb ik deze Bushcraft Basics gevolgd in het afgelegen Noord Karelië. In een prettig tempo worden een flink aantal basisvaardigheden op een fijne manier uitgelegd. Ruim gelegenheid om alles te oefenen. Je eerste lepel snijden gaat nl niet zo snel als je zal willen en ook de vuurboog is een kwestie van volhouden gebleken (wel gelukt!) Uitstekende verzorging waarbij je uiteraard ook zelf aan de slag gaat. (elke dag brood bakken bv) Je hebt dan een hele mooie totaalbeleving in een prachtige bushcraftomgeving. Aanrader!
