Gnats. I ate inhaled a handful on the way up Dang hill. The one knife thing didn't happen. I used a Camlilus, Gossman PSK and a Leatherman Juice. Trail tape to mark the trail up Dang hill.

I bought a Katadyn Micro filter on the to Virginia. The package promises to treat Cryptosporidium, Giardia and dumb-assery. 2 out 3 ain't bad. Rocks are sharp.

My storage bucket had a hot sauce explosion on the drive down. Hot sauce flavored oatmeal, hot sauce flavored coffee. The horror. Thor ponders the significance of the situation. Kelly AKA Kells Bells AKA the Kitchen Queen did her first solo camp here on Dang hill a few weeks back. She is now a converted tarp camper.

Steve AKA Ground Zero wanted to make an improvised survival bow as the camp project. We found some nice straight Witch hazel for the bow sections. That Camillus chopped right through it.

This is Brennan. Brennan cut his finger. Not enough for stitches but enough that I had to perform First Aid. I wrapped the gauze in pink duct tape so his finger would be easier to find when it fell off.

Venison and chicken ka-bobs. We tried stringing the meat through a 24 gauge wire and suspending it over the fire. Kind of worked. Aluminium foil on top would have reflected heat more evenly. Of course there was Better then Sex BBQ sauce. Some discussion on Maxpedition packs. Around 10:30 it rained so we called it a night. It only got down to 50 degrees and it was humid.

View from my tent. They wanted to use a lighter to start the the fire this morning. I said survival campin' we're using a Fire Steel. Makin' bacon. We made a tripod in order to support the weight of the cross bar.

Useful camping tip: When your plate falls in the dirt, flip it over. Brennan is cooking eggs. He's about to learn that fire is hot. Kells Bells made flat wide bannock. Heading back up Darn hill on the way out. There's all sorts edible wild plants on the hill. In the drive way we gave the hunting bola try.  :ack:
