The Sumo Survival Bushcraft Podcast
About This Show
Sumo Survival is the brainchild of brothers Sean and Sy Makin. After decades of outdoor adventures and buying and using more kit than a small Scandinavian army, they decided it was time to make use of the knowledge they had gained and share it with other bushcrafters.

The guys revisit some previously answered questions along with some new ones.
John from new castle attended a local event where some bush crafters were demonstrating some basic outdoor skills to the public and noticed that a few of the guys there were wearing their waterproof jackets under their combat jackets. He asks the guys why would they do this? The fellas suggests some possible reasons for it.
Dublin based Francis asks if buying off the shelf survival tins/kits are a good investment or is it better to make up your own. They guys talk about how they approach it and suggest some ideas that Francis can try.
Mark from Blairgowrie was recently wild camping in untended field near where he lives and awoke to a very angry farmer telling to pack up and move off his land. He asks the guys if the farmer has the right to do that. The brother discuss the issues surrounding wild camping in Scotland and what rights you and the landowner have in regards to it.
Sean covers phase 1 of the new sumo website and the direction the next phase will take and how that is going to involve the community.

Real life bushcrafters with real life solutions!
I really enjoy the Sumo Survival brothers. They laugh and joke and talk about real life situations. Episode 36 was really good and helped me to decide which knife I should buy my kids and how I should teach them how to use it safely. Thanks guys!
