Randomness.... well I am generally quite an adrenaline and adventure junkie - having a basic knowledge and skill in a number of extreme sports like skydiving, climbing, kayaking, rafting and most recently surfing. I love the freedom of freefall almost as much as I love sitting on a deserted beach on a river or sea listening to the sounds of the water while lying back and watching the stars or clouds. I love to walk barefoot, especially on a summers day when the ground is warm.

Rob

OCCUPATION:
Carpenter by trade but now flying a desk as a project surveyor

SKILLS:
Carpentry and general building skills im also good at finding a practical solution to a problem

WHAT DO I WANT TO GET OUT OF THE UK CHAPTER?
Ive come to realise Im getting older and fatter and would die within a week if the SHTF. Thats quite worrying to me so instead of worrying I would like to do something about it.

RANDOM STUFF
My son is 14 and im trying desperatly to pry him away from his computer with the lure of camping and bushcraft type skills. Hes humoring me at the moment for the prospect of knives and fire. Although he is quite useless, he even cut himself making some ranger bands from a bike inner tube :roll: It would be nice to spend some time with him doing Dad and Son stuff before I lose him to university girls and motorbikes. :mrgreen:
