Had a great camp with Crash, MadMax, Mannlicher and Spyder this weekend at the Town of KICCO camp in Florida. Spyder and I came in on Friday, while the others came in on Thursday. It was a blast hanging out with a great group of guys in the middle of nowhere with perfect camping weather. We all ate well, hydrated well and got revitalized by just hanging out and relaxing. There were more knives than I could count and we all had a blast passing some around trying them out.
I came home with a new filet knife and a couple of quarts of Apple Pie from Dave, some excellent sauce from Sam, and some deer burger from Spyder, and a fully belly from Tony. Thanks guys, always a blast.
A few knives that Crash brought along. Fortunately for the rest of us, his load was a little lighter for the trip home.
Crash's new camp kitchen. We put it to good use.
Crash made me a very cool fillet knife in a trade for the camp kitchen. Awesome knife that will be put to good use. This picture doesn't do it justice, I'll take a better shot and post it up later.
A batch of D.O. Buttermilk Biscuits I made up Saturday morning.
A batch of homemade cinnamon rolls cooked in a Dutch oven Saturday morning.
MadMax cooked up some excellent sausage gravy while Spyder cooked up some tasty potatoes, eggs and bacon.
I played around with a new Coleman camp oven. It worked surprisingly well. I put in a clay baking stone in the bottom to help the oven retain some heat, and it worked good. Unfortunately by baking stone cracked, but the oven did its job. I baked some homemade pizza rolls, and a few loaves of homemade bread.
I made some Strawberry Shortcake for desert and whipped up batch of fresh whipped cream for the topping. Crash seemed to enjoy it.
This is Sam's Insta-Tarp configuration.
