July 4th?time travel and more woods stuff!
« on: July 10, 2017, 05:50:07 PM »

Woke up in Japan, took a direct flight at about 4pm July 3rd?slept, watched movies, ate airplane food and listened to babies cry?slept, woke up at 4pm July 3rd in New Jersey.

I like this type of time travel, however, jetlag sucks. July 4th I hit the woods to see what type of condition my summer camp was in. To my surprise, not bad at all after 3 months away. I had a broken chair from jute twine giving out, but that is to be expected of jute. I dug out my cache, retrieved my tomahawk (for summer) from the log and headed up the hill to start summer camp 2017?.

Over the course of three days, I captured the summer coming to life and all the usual suspects out and about?including the mosquitos. I decided to have something I couldn?t have in the Mediterranean, Middle East and Asia?Hot Dogs! What better way to celebrate the 4th of July than some all American Hot Dogs. Eventually, I would get around to some sausages, taters and baked beans.


Good to be back in the USA?will post trip pictures of my travels soon!














My Hawk had some rust from early spring snow still looming in March when I stashed it in a hollow log.





Getting a coal base was first on the list?






I was welcomed by the usual suspects?













Beech








Squid tree and even some burls were there to greet me!









Tree roots worthy of  a Johnny Depp movie?



















Cajun hot dogs








Some brew and Japanese sweet bread?









The Y-stick roaster thing?




















Apple Sausages wrapped in bacon, chipotle baked beans and two taters, with Red Eyed Hog seasoning, another thing I couldn?t get in the Middle East.






Malaysian Old Town Coffee?





Fixed chair? and hammock chair?













Camp from about 15 meters away?hard to see, even with the reflective inside of the all-weather blanket facing me?






Hike out?

Just Cajun spice over them, and some spicy cheese too.

Glad your back, we missed you. Sure made me hungry!!

As much rain as we have had the mosquito's aren't all that horrible. Even at my sisters where they carry us away they were few and far between. Not complaining, just a little weird. I think the down pours were too strong for them!!
