The Truck

Sue and I bit the bullet and gave up our full-time jobs just over 3 years ago now. We started by living in a small camper and then brought the Tardis which was an old furniture truck and is now our home. It hasn't been easy but it has certainly been worth it. Along the way we got some things right and quite a few things wrong and it is my plan to document the journey so you can learn from both our success' and failures. We make our living from the New Zealand bush (forest) and if that interests you have a poke around the site and you'll find videos, stories and so forth. The truck was a sows ear when we brought it but even though it is not yet a silk purse it is now our home and we love it.

    Thanks Bryan for the detailed videos learnt a lot from the tanning series. Just about to tan a fox and you info has helped. I own and operate a small business in leather work and have a Facebook page Goanna Bushcraft and Leatherworks, have a look. I work with leather and go walk about quite often... just love your work though. I am going to get a website soon but have not had the money and time to create one. Just one thing I could not find where you bought the tanning kit from maybe there should be a section on your website that has all the places of relevant information of where you can buy these products.
