George: Leon hi, nice to meet you, I’m George.
Leon Durbin: Hi George—
George: So, what’s going on here in the forest.
Leon Durbin: Well, the challenge is that I will be to learn some skills and maybe I’m running some bushcraft that goes there in wild wood west and we’re trying to just—skills that you would better use if your friends—difficult situation out in the woods.
George: So, it feels like yeah I’m on the set if I’m a celebrity assuming it is the real thing isn’t it?
Leon Durbin: It is the real thing yes, yes. These are real skills and yeah, yeah. I could learn some usual things—
George: And do you have some group of stag parties that come on these courses and use of lead the whole thing.
Leon Durbin: Yes I’m really going active for groups of people to you know to bond and get together and have quite a good fund day with all the challenges. And it’s quite a little bit different and it’s also a bit environmentally friendly and I will do running bushcraft—bringing a more impact and people generally have a great day doing this.
George: So this is perfect then. I’m going to learn how to become a leader and this is something I can take all my friends on. Yeah, let’s see how it goes. Well carry on, fantastic.
Leon Durbin: The challenge we can do today is we’re going to get to turn a lot of fire using natural materials on the wood lead and primitive methods like—and fire friction and do the fire. And the second method is going to be putting up a hammock in the top—is required for that—
George: It’s going to be a cold night. I can’t take that much. So, what do we need to do first?
Leon Durbin: First thing we’ll be—simple materials losing a fire so we look for tender and such—okay I think we’ve got enough—forest, shall we? Okay, George is, listen we’re going to learn some fire by friction. This is by—very preventive method. It means rubbing.
George: It sounds dangerous.
Leon Durbin: Yeah it can be, rubbing wood together to get heat, it’ll ultimately spark and amber. It’s very primitive method, using a bow this is called bow drill and it’s one of the easier method to fire by friction and you might see other methods where do people to hand your—this is a better easy and more suitable for this kind of climate. We’re going o look at this and give you a demonstration of how it works and you can have it.
George: What if I get cut—got more contact to lift up like a prime and blow in there. We’re trying to keep the contact so what it needs to and lots of—it needs to be in contact with the stuff around or where it is not going to burn the stuff around so you need to get squeeze it but not crash it, okay and give me that now.
Leon Durbin: You got it flying there, you can fly turn it, turn it so that the flame burns through the material so you could put it on the ground if you want to because that’s now on the feet and there’s got central thing. Okay now we’ve got the—for evening and then we’ll come back in a cup of tea.
George: Brilliant. It is really very comfortable. Leon cheers!
Leon Durbin: Cheers.
George: Today has been a true adventure. Thank you.
