Gas Cylinder Wood Stove
A look at a home made gas cylinder wood stove or my version of an ozpig stove. I have posted this video because there seems to be quite a bit of interest in this kind of stove. Fairly easy to make, if a bit time consuming. I use it quite a lot now for cooking outdoors and it's very easy and effective.

My 3 Favorite Bushcraft Items
I got tagged by canoebushcraft to show my 3 favorite bushcraft items, thanks Joe. The items I have chosen could be viewed to be just camping items but in terms of getting out in the bush for all activities, including bushcraft, these are the items that, at the moment are my favorites. I spend a lot of time outdoors, so when it comes to choosing gear, a lot of thought and research goes into my choices. I like my gear to be well made, versatile and as far as possible, good value for money. My knees have pretty much put a halt in my long distance hiking/bushcrafting for now, so although most of this gear could be used when hiking, my gear choices are slowly bending towards a canoe/kayak type set up. Apologies for the bad iphone video, can't find my camera(I really gotta clean up the man cave) The three people that I am going to pass this tag onto will be Howling Dingo- http://www.youtube.com/channel/UCt7OjVJJVMvgbD-05LAUeSg GreyBear- http://www.youtube.com/user/graybearbushcraft Runningstreammx- http://www.youtube.com/user/runningstreammx

Solo weekend canoe trip and wild camp.
Another wild camp on out on the waterways south of Sydney. A long first day with an 18 km paddle, but very secluded and worth it. The audio is slightly out for some reason, apologies. I ditched the two ended kayak paddle that came with the canoe and used a canoe paddle which kept me dry and once I got the hang of the J stroke all was good.

Bushcraft Trip by Canoe '14 Part 1
I have wanted to revisit Myall lakes since my last visit that's featured in my Myall lakes flooded yak trip video. It was impressive last time even if most of the camp sites were inaccessible, but it was completely stunning this time. I can't recommend it enough as a paddling destination. This time I'm joined by my mate Leppy who has a great youtube channel. I'm uploading it in 2 parts as my home internet is pretty sluggish and takes a very long time. The second half features some nice glassy water and sunny conditions.

Myall Lakes National Park Multi Day Trip Part 1
A four day trip that turned into a three day trip into the beautiful but flooded Myall Lakes National Park. Following a couple of weeks of very heavy rain, water levels were at a 25 year high in the park. Road access to the lakes was limited and had to do some long reverses down trails to get back out. I'm going to do this upload in 2 parts as it's a bit long. Hope you enjoy it.

Wild edibles Geebungs
Geebungs(Persoonia spp.) are found all over the eastern coast of N.S.W. Fruiting occurs in summer. The ripe fruit can be squeezed out of the skin and the flesh chewed off the inner stone. The stones can be roasted and the inner nut eaten. The juice from the fruit was used in dying reeds/grasses to make dilly bags. The bark, if soaked, can be used in tanning. It also has some medicinal uses, so all in all a very important plant to the area.

Ezyspit with Modifications
Just a look at the Easyspit. A flat packing fire pit, rotisserie, BBQ, and the modifications that I did to the spit support ends. It's a great portable fire pit to take camping, and it doesn't leave a fire scar. I found that it was too high as it came, for efficient roasting, other than maybe roasting a whole animal. Now that I have cut down the ends, about 70 mm shorter, It works just fine, and saves a lot of fuel. It also works great for a fire pit at home or camping or as a BBQ. The whole unit comes apart for flat pack transport. http://www.ezyspit.com/product/es600/ Click on my "Wall Tent Camping" video to see it used as a fire pit.

Myself and Lepmeister headed out on a three day canoe trip into the Kangaroo Valley and Lake Yorrunga. The weather was pretty perfect and the fish were biting. This time of year the cicadas are out in force and most of this video pretty loud with them. It was loud for us too. It was a great trip with perfect conditions. Hope you enjoy it.
