Survival at Wood Fuel Fair

I (Matt) took Bee and JJ to the Wood Fuel Fair. The highlight of the afternoon was going to the area where there were some people from Elite Survival Training. They were talking about all sorts of things to do with survival and very patiently helped Bee to start a fire using a Magnesium fire lighter, some cotton wool and birch bark. JJ is completely into the idea of birch bark being a material that can achieve anything, so this was a hit with him. The fire started on the third attempt. Then they told us about all sorts of other survival gear. We will probably go back tomorrow to see some of the green wood carving.
