Nice bushcraft poem from another blog...

Found this post this morning on Islay Birding News about a bushcraft poem that someone sent him. It's pretty good! I like it anyway. The linkto the post is here but I also copied the poem for you to read!

Thanks Jeremy!

I'm travelling light this weekend,
The forest won't know that i'm here,
My knowledge is light as a feather,
And my Bushcraft is 'without peer'.
I'm carrying just the essentials,
I've pared it down to the bone,
I've got my waffer thin laptop,
And a Gucci pouch for me phone.
My new pants are made by Thermos,
I've a thing that makes Bushcrafty toast.
I couldn't decide which hammock to take
......So I finally settled on both !
My seating system is awesome :
A cammo recliner and stool,
It's made from tubes of titanium,
Upholstered in 'merino' wool
These binos are made by NASA,
Ranulf Ffiennes tested me socks,
And the chap that designed my combats,
Also did Princess Di's frocks.
My fare will be authentic and wholesome;
Just dried beans (for mountain man stew)
I've also got pot noodles,
and sweeties,Oh, and chokky bits too
Knives, to me, should be simple;
Function and form, hand in hand
The handle of this one is Dodo Shin :
There's only five in the land
Truthfully ? Axes bore me ;
You seen one, you seen em' all,
So I keep it down to the basics,
And just carry three..... as a rule.
You gotta know about water,
And how to make it pure.
I 'Pre-mac' and boil it 'till Sunday( and use "Volvic", Just to be sure).
I've got twelve ways to make fire
And I know that three of them work ;
I got a magnifying glass and "Swan Vestas"
( me "Zippo" is, just a perk ! )
I'm " keepin' it real " in Bushcraft,
My mates all think that I'm great,
But they had to change the venue
And didn't tell me 'till late .
So here I am , in the forest,
Just nature and nothing but dark.
That's it......I'm off home early :
Stuff that for a lark !!!!
