Episode 70: Kids Camping, Kelly Kettles & New Bushcraft Shop – The Sumo Survial Bushcraft Podcast

Sean and Sy are back after a short break with the 70th episode of the Sumo Survival Bushcraft Podcast.

Listener Monir from Sheffield took his young kids camping this summer in Wales but they didn’t enjoy staying in a tent at all especially at night. He asks the guys for advice on how to introduce camping to kids. Sean suggests back garden camping as a good first step for youngsters new to the outdoors and Sy has some ideas to make it exciting for them as well.

Londoner Mark recently attended his first bushcraft overnighter in Yorkshire with a group of bush crafters he met on Facebook. The experience left him a little disappointed after it turned out to be fellas drinking by a campfire. He asks if this the norm for these kind of meet ups. The brother assure him it is not and talk about the various different aspects of belonging to a bushcraft group.

Craig from Newcastle asks what fuel would the guys recommend is best for a trangia type stove. Sy favours meths but goes on to discuss the different fuels available and Sean highlights some alternative uses.

Steve from Devon is wondering what the brothers thoughts are on Swedish Mess Kits – are they good gear or have they been hyped up?

Wildlife photographer Katie from Humberside is replacing her outdoor kit in readiness for the winter and is thinking about buying a Kelly Kettle. Sy talks about his experience of using such kettles with a variety of different heat sources and what to watch out for when using one.
