Frozen Getaway Camp, Stone Reflector, Strange Food, Fiskars Leather Sheath, Crafts?

Late winter on the East Coast and still cold, with a side of snow. An overnighter and some day trips while sick and weak, but the weather was calling. Got a new leather sheath for the Fiskars X7 I keep in the camp. New food combos to try also.

Slow Travel



This was my creek/water source







Fiskars sheath, meant for Estwing Hatchet




Best to wet it and get the axe in, then it will form better.




Spatula










Nights are long and boring in winter?




Red Eyed Hog outdoors products!



I have treated leather bags, sheaths, and axe handles with this stuff. They grease your pans and keep the rust off your axe!




River










At my ?Getaway Camp? I built a small stone fire wall. It has many advantages like being able to make a fire close to it and having some flat spots to put a coffee cup on. It can be made higher by places damp wood on for drying and retaining heat. I built up the back with rotten, damp scrap wood. Then, placed stones on top.














Pipe Hawk making a log-cabin fire?







I favor the Alpaca wool head wrap. One piece that is a hat, scarf, face wrap in one.










Batons





An odd mixture of food I wanted to make something creative with?










First the mash, then beef & gravy with mushrooms.

That Vine is cool. Try making that lantern with a soda can. The aluminum can be polished to reflect a lot of light.

Sunday am the dogs were walking on top of the snow. I had to walk out to get them and I too was waling on top with care. Later on I wished I took the pulk down the hill. It would have been fun on the way down at least. LOL!

Soda cans were too short for the candles and I wanted to use what I had. They were plenty bright.

Neat camp.  Great photos.

Thanks for the comment about the waterproofing ability of that lip balm.  I think we will get some of the seasoning too.

Nice sheath too.

Very good seasoning. Lots of uses for the rendered pork fat stick too.
