Trials of life

Firstly, let me apologise for the quiet blog - my work life balance has been in turmoil, I have moved home etc etc ............... but now things are slowly returning to normal and as such this blog will soon be back up to speed.

Now, I am in the process of writing a book which will have other media/interactive access but more on this later. As part of this book I have been out and about testing items and ideas and over the last couple of days I had a quick camp out with the sole purpose of testing a blanket for warmth as a sleeping item when used without a campfire.

As such myself and one of my oldest buddies (wiggy) headed out into the local woods ,,,,,,,,,, our gear was as per the kit items I will be listing in the book and the test was to examine the survivability of a person caught out with a blanket but unable to light a fire ............

Good results, cold wet January night - but all in all not a bad night!

More to come!!
