Mosquito nets are a total sanity item out here. They're number two, right after water for me!

Oh, I forgot to add the most important C of them all. Number one is always Canine.

I don't Bushcraft without her. It gets lonely in the bush after the first week. But, if you bring your pup, you always have someone to talk to and an extra set of ears to help with security.
