My Greenriver Deck Knife or Dadley knife.

In 2008 I joined Survivalistboards, an English chap on there posted asking about a knife, a knife that turned out to be the Greenriver Deck Knife (I later found out it was called a Dadley design) as soon as I saw it I wanted one, at less than £20 I wasted no time.
  I really liked the GrDK and used it often for a variety of tasks from wood work to food processing but at 5" it felt ungainly.

Maple Seeds.

I've tried these at various times straight from the branch, they've always been a little too tannic (like acorns) for my taste buds but I'm a persistant fellow (stubborn) and this year I found some quite edible raw.

Beach safety..

Just got back from a few days camping in Wales to read the news headlines about 5 deaths in Camber Sands, from what I saw while away honestly I'm not surprised infact I'll go as far to say I'm surprised there's not more.
