Muddy Pete's day off (Wild hearted son)

Never watch the Walking Dead when you're going to be camping alone. Never, never, never.

Wednesday AM.

 

After a trip to the rangers office to check in, and gripe and hit on the cute park ranger. Hey there wanna come back to my yurt? I've got cookies.  :ack:

 

~ well, Kudos to you for not inviting her back to your tent for ashy Bulz, or even worse, to check out your cool knife collection....  :whistle:  :cheers:

Cat tails. There was a whole mess of them back up at the rangers office. IT'S A SIGN! But no, what I'm working on would require some explaining and probably a visit from the park rangers that I don't want to have.

What I picked up instead were several branches of dry brown pine. I dig these little cabins down the road. They have heat for winter camping. Sissies.

I went for a walk around the campground and collected some more dried pine and some twigs. I also found 3' of twine that had been discarded in another site.

I used some of the twine to secure my fire torch together at the base. The rest I fluffed into nest. My big fat head for scale.

Cat tails for initial tinder. I'm going to use a peice of charcloth onto of the cat tails which should give me enough flame to get the whole mess burning. I've never built one of these before so we'll see what happens. 

 

As it turns out I didn't need the char cloth. Dry cat tails alone did just fine and the whole thing right up.

Thursday AM. I woke up to find racoons gotten into my food last night. Now I know what that hook thing was for. They ate my cookies. They ate a dry package of oatmeal and a bouillon cube. They tried to get into my tabasco sauce. Oddly enough the potato I baked for breakfast last night was on the ground untouched as was the cheddar popcorn. My bannock was in the same bucket and they left that alone.

NJ frowns on firearms in their state parks. Actually they frown on firearms in their state. The colored tape makes the knives easier to find in the grass. I left the rest in the car.

i like that teapot looking anadized kettle  on your fire muddy, is that a GSI ?

 

It sits better on the grill because of the wide base.  It's a Primus.

~  Looks like great fun Muddy!  :thumbsup:  Did you take anybody along with you?

 

I called some buddies but no one got back to me until Wednesday and by that point I had already turned off my phone.

No, if they had gotten the beer it would all over. I may go back in a few weeks. My hat is a Dorfman which I bought from REI.
