Weekend in the Woods

Seven of us went out last weekend for an impromptu trip into the woods, at this time of the year it gets dark quickly so we only got a few small projects accomplished before night fell, anyway as usual with us food and fire formed the basis of a great camp..

Steven lit the fire this time with a ferro rod and Pampas grass, quite a good tinder actually.

We made some charcloth

Succeeded in boiling water in a plastic bottle without it melting.

Yes, those are bubbles going nuts in the bottle! This was after just 3 minutes!

The bottle lost about 1/3 of it's capacity but was otherwise unharmed.

Dinner was served!

Not much left after it was shared around!!

A great time was had by all, thanks for making it a great trip!
