    Don't forget the roasted chestnuts and baked potatoes done in the hearth.

    My gran had a big brass toasting fork. Think my mum had one too

    Used to roll spuds in mud and cook them in a campfire when young. They tasted great but that's probably coz we were kids

    We also used to bake spuds in campfires, but I never knew about rolling them in mud. Maybe that's why they were always black as coal. I always ate the charred skins though, and I'm happy to report no ill effects

    Perhaps more foolhardy on these "outdoor activities" was seeing how many of us could hang off the rope swing before it broke. Usually about six.
    I'd agree with you, but then we'd both be wrong.

    We can count ourselves lucky Grant - living in the country or having it close by made for some great memories, and we learned practical skills without realising it. I know plenty of folk who grew up in towns and didn't have this, and I think they missed out on a lot.
