Forecast had snow in it and this close to spring you never know if it will be the last snow of the season, so I got out there while it was still on the ground. I met my good friend and fellow writer, Jonathan Kilburn https://www.nitehawk.net/author/jonathan-kilburn/  out there for some woods time, camp building and Kimbap, which his wife made us for the day. That was very kind of her, but it was a lot. Think of it as a Korean sushi wrap, but different. He was working on writing up a Helle knife and Hults Bruk axe. We were also working on building his camp up a little bit. I was fixing to possibly spend the night out there, so brought a salmon fillet and some morning goodies?just in case. I also had a lot of small projects to get done, preferably before the spring crowd got there. Night temperatures were only 28F and the next day was going to be clear!
Birch in this area is dying off, sadly.





My Alpaca Wool beanie?uber warm and superlight!
Flattening out a maple log for a project


Legs for the project. I only make stakes of all types with a chisel end. Faster and every bit as good as making a point. Try it!



Finished project


Spatula carving as I have zero use for spoons





This is how I make fuzz sticks and stakes with a tomahawk/hatchet. I also used this method shaping and smoothing out a mallet



The mallet was made with only the carving axe from James Gibson. I make spatulas with either a sharp point for poking meat or a flattened, narrow end for lifting pot lids.



Again, I only cross grain baton a chisel point and top?done!

We continued working on the camp?


Then it was time for me to have dinner after I made a fire?sure enough that Kimbap was used with the salmon I had.



Camp


I?ve been told I had the saddest, most unappealing camp ever!


Breakfast
Mushrooms, peppers, tomatoes, spinach, eggs, cheese, and lots of Red Eyed Hog! Italian sausage was also on the menu.


Steamed the omelet with the small tray this cook pot came with.




Walking out shot of a Beech leaf?winter is ending!

You ever think of submitting some of your trips as magazine articles?
Another good one.

Nice. I like the insulated sweater.

No use for spoons? I bet you do, but are willing to tolerate whatever inefficiencies doing without entails. Interesting point of view though. Carry on!

Thanks for the TR

Spent a month straight in Japan and never used a spoon. Think about it, if you can't pick it up with chopsticks, then it must be soup like in consistency, therefore, grab the bowl/cup and drink from it.

Good to be here. I liked hoodlums, Karen and Ron Hood are lifetime friends. That forum got hard for me to post on.

Thinking about the steamed omelette as a dish somewhere in the middle of those. Chopsticks now. Ok. Low kickshaw value.
