After a hectic month the Sumo Survival guys have managed to get back together to catch up and record episode 107 of their bushcraft podcast.
This episode covers an array of differing topics all connected to the outdoors.
Brendan from Whitby recently signed up to a outward bound course through work. I haven’t take part in anything like this since I was a nipper 35 years ago. On the kit let they are advised to bring along with them it mentions a shock proof watch. Brendan asks the guys this – This may seem like a silly question but why would I need a shock proof watch? The guys talks about why a shock proof watch isn’t a bad idea when heading out for adventure.
A dance too far…
Cornwall based Rick asks if it the latest fad of civilians attempting the infamous Fan Dance on Pen-Y-Fan while carrying heavy loads is madness or is there something to be learned from doing something like this. The brothers talk about the route and the possible dangers in attempting it and why, for the unprepared, it is perhaps best avoided.
Graham who currently is enjoying life as a Army Cadet from Wiltshire recently read the review of the Varta Indestructible Powerpack on the Sumo website and was wondering asks if there are any special precautions you should take when packing them in your pack and taking them with you go out on a hike. Sy shares some advice about power packs and how to best handle them
Getting ready for the sun…
After the spell of good weather across the UK, Mark from Kilmarnock asks the guys what kind of jackets are best for bush crafting in hot weather. The guys share their warm weather kit lists and talk about some of kit to avoid.
