Ray Mears

WILD RIVER

With

The River Wye has an epic quality to it. We feel it's, not only in the rivers beauty, nature and rugged origins up there in the Cambrian Mountains of Wales, but it's also in the way it wanders, bends and meanders as SAS Survival Expert and bestselling Author John Lofty Wiseman eloquently says in his comment about the Wye and website on the Home Page. It simply captivates the imagination of a diverse range of people as it does other experts we respect in the field of outdoors, ecology, nature and bush craft. This has recently been exemplified by none other than the world-renowned bush craft and outdoors expert  Ray Mears  who journeyed down the Wye from its source to reveal a river full of wonder, thrilling nature, varied terrain, communities, conservation and even industry.

 

For us there were familiar sights but as we watched  we could not help but smile as we did so. We absolutely loved seeing Ray Mears at the source an area we have wild camped and communed with…we knew it well (see website), we enjoyed the people he met, the interesting gems concerning the nature, there he touched on a few bush craft ways and all along the way he conveyed a connection that spoke of reverence and admiration. He did it proud and we were like cheering as though a real point that could not be ignored had been made. Success!  The river has been translated to the nation for decoding. This means people accessing it, connecting with it, themselves and generally getting outdoors. The advert could not be clearer and we resonated and saw common ground.
