Bushclass USA Sew a Ditty Bag



The bushclass USA is always good for teaching or improving skills. I am fairly proficient at hand sewing from my days doing Medieval reenactment sew this class was not that hard to do. But I did get use my sail needle with paracord guts, which was something new.

Gear: # 13 Mors Bush Pot

Mors Kochkanski is a legend in the outdoors community. He practically invented bushcraft as it were and lived the life to back it up. So a pot like the one he has made coffee in for 30 years can't be all bad.  I needed a new pot anyway.

Geocaching Adventure

The weather is perfect to get outside. What better excuse to go places you have never been than searching for treasure with the GPS.  Geocaching is fun.


Boot Cleaning Time

Time to get out the cleaner and sealer for the boots. Winter is on the way and I eagerly await tromping quietly through snow.

Flint Knapping Bottles

Flint Knapping is something I watch with awe at the skill many knappers possess. I have recently decided to give it a go, the only issue is the rocks I have found are not the best for knapping. They contain micro cracks or generally don't work well for me so far. Glass is another option so I decided to give it a go.

Adventure: #17 River to River Trail Section Hike Part 4

The 2nd and 3rd day of the section hike.  It was a long trip but one I was glad to do. I have hopes of doing the entire 160 miles some day but I am not sure I can maintain a 20 mile a day pace. I think after 3 or 4 days it may take me out.  Perhaps I will plan a trip and do it in halves.
