    We just heard about Swede. Our thoughts are with Sharen and all Swede's friends. Sharen, if you need help with anything, you have our number. We may not be able to help, but we'd sure try.

    Eggs and sausage sound great!! Tessa could probably eat any or all of it. i have to avoid pancakes because of the evil carb. Thanks for the quick response. Be glad to see everyone again. Tessa says hi to everyone from the couch.

    Hello, everyone!! Anybody know what the current plans are for Farmageddon?

    Good for you Swede. Wow everything looks different. Instead of contributing to charity....other than like the good will, if you take that money and help out person to person like Swede did, you can actually see your money and time working.

    A hello to all the forum members that I haven't seen for a while. Tess and I spent all day in the woods building up our little bushcraft camping area. Got the bed/sitting area done. Redid the fire area to make it bigger and better. Our woods is about 10 acres and maybe 25 % ash trees. We've been logging them out for firewood and building this bushcraft camping area.

  7. Inspirational Quotes

    A person's reach should always exceed their grasp. Unknown, but I know for sure I didn't think of it. Always meant to me to keep trying to do stuff that maybe you would never be able to do....but who knows, you might figure it out? I should learn to duckduckgo more stuff.....author is Robert Browning, but not quite in the above form.

    Happy New Year to one and all. It is 4:11 am here, Tess is still asleep...that slacker. Just put out the trash for pickup tomorrow, and it is -11F with a light wind, no cloud cover and what looks to be close to a full moon. Oh, Tess just wandered out of the bedroom and said, "Fire feels nice..." it's 88F here in the house...trying to avoid any water freeze-ups. We have about 6 inches of snow, and this week we are supposed to stay cold and get 2 to 6 more inches. Tess is back asleep....not sure she was fully awake. Thought I might call out some youtube survival type people that I've been watching who seem to know their stuff or it is educational watching them learn: Far North Bushcraft, David Pearson ReallyBigMonkey, Survival Lilly, and Mr. Chickadee. And one small tip that I heard and have been thinking about. If you carry a bow drill set with you...and maybe an antler or vertebrae bearing....why not carry a small steel roller bearing, or two? Might make friction fire a bit easier?

    Merry Christmas everyone!! Almost 7:00 o'clock am here on Christmas Morning. Have a hot cup of tea, 19 degrees F, wind estimated at 15, gusting to 25. Going to be about 3F by tonight according to weather service. We have nice snow cover, beautiful on the trees. Hope you all; SG, Swede, Sharen, Doc and family, Muddy and anyone else I've had a senior moment and forgotten, have a Merry Christmas and a Grand New Year. Tessa is still sleeping, but I'm sure she would add her best wishes as well.

    Tess and I made it back home. We had a wonderful time at Farmageddon 2017. We want to thank Swede and Sharen for being such great hosts. Want to thank all the participants for such great conversations and just excellent company. We would have been home a bit earlier, but when in a big city, we have to stop at Sam's club and get our Sam's club stuff bought. Got home at 7:30 our time.

    Tess and I are hoping to make it but we have no exact time of arrival.

    Hey everyone. Sorry but somehow both Tess and I completely forgot the scheduled chat. I blame her. One of the things I've noticed about getting older is the darndest things will get forgotten. Anyhow, next scheduled chat is June 3rd, 2017. Nothing stops informal chats in here when anyone wants to, however. Again, my apologies to everyone.
