  8. Hi there,,

    I hope you don’t mind me contacting you out of the blue. I am a television producer working for major independent production company Optomen Television in London. We are currently producing a new documentary series for Channel 4 in the UK about people who have quit the rat race and moved to live in wilderness locations the world. It will be an inspirational series following the incredible stories of ordinary people who are living a unique way of life in some of the most beautiful and breath-taking places. The presenter, Kevin McCloud, best known for presenting the hit TV series ‘Grand Designs’ will visit people in their wildness homes and get to experience first-hand the wonder of life in these stunning locations.

    Our research team in London is currently looking for suitable stories to feature in the series and we’re keen to contact people who may be interested in taking part. I thought I would contact you as I’m trying to find Expat British families attempting to live self-sufficiently in wilderness locations overseas. I was hoping you may be able to point me in the direction of British expats living in Finland that could be interested?

    Our show is primarily about living off the land and going to a back to basics existence. The presenter, Kevin McCloud has made a programme for Channel 4 in the UK called ‘Kevin’s Man Made Home’ which explores self-sustainability and ‘Wild Homes’ is an extension of this theme.

    Here’s a bit more explanation on the show. The idea is that the presenter Kevin will spend around 5 days living with the contributors, experiencing life in wilderness locations. Our ideal scenario is one where the individual/couple/family have built their own property and are living off-grid. A large element of the show is about living in the wilderness, so the larger the element of living off the land, the better. This particular show is more about moving to the wilderness to enjoy a simpler life, surrounded by nature. For example are speaking to a family who have given up jobs as Lawyers in London to move South America and are building an eco-house on the side of an active volcano. We are looking at how they get water, electricity, food, how they school the kids, etc.

    The more there is going on the better, e.g. if someone is building additions to their home, planting coffee /cocoa to run a farm, etc, etc, the better. We are interested in aspects of living rurally that may include home-schooling, hunting/foraging, growing food, raising livestock, living off-grid, etc.

    I hope this gives you a bit of a steer.

    We are looking to film at week long intervals in January and February. Any help you can provide would be much appreciated.

    Many Thanks and Kind Regards,

    Cheryl Jackson

    Hi there, thanks for the pyttipannu recipe!

    How do I subscribe to your blog?

    I will start taking my son camping this summer and since I am not even an amateur camper I like to get ideas from other folks.

    • Glad you are getting something out of the blog! I commend you for taking your son camping and hope you both enjoy it for a long time to come! My advice would be to start simply. Don’t try to take on too much at once. It can be discouraging if things don’t go the way you hoped. Build your skills up gradually and tackle one or two things at a time. Remember that you don’t have to be “in the field” to practice skills. You can take day trips for a few hours each, practice in your backyard etc. You and your son can learn together, which is great!
