Misty Ham & Eggs and the Woodpecker!
« on: April 09, 2018, 07:31:53 PM »
Day after Easter and out to hike for the day. The woods were cold, drizzly, and full of a mist made for a Stephan King story.





With some snow melting it really kicked off the creeks and streams


Pileated Woodpecker was out doing his work







A little ham and eggs coming at you!

   Nice outing.   Your photography  really makes it come alive.

Good essay again Bear. 

I have a similar Mora.  It is the number one finger cutting knife in my collection.  I have thought about grinding a finger slot in the handle to keep it cutting my index finger when it is slippery.

Looks muddy there like it is here.  Rejuvenation of the ground is going well in a lot of places this year.

What product is in the oriental packages?

To start with, I always enjoy your photo posts.  The woodpecker photo is my favorite shot in this particular string.  Outstanding! :thumbsup:

I am curious though, about how well the 'Swedish Torch' style fire worked in your stove?   Obviously, you have had good luck with it in the past or you wouldn't have chosen it.  It is apparent that you scored the larger pieces to help them 'catch' fire from the fast-burning tinder, but they are still unsplit rounds.  Is there a reason you didn't split them into halves or quarters before lighting the fire?   Please don't take this as criticism.   I'm just curious  :shrug: .......or ignorant! :P

not a criticism (yet ;)) but what actions were you taking with a slippery hilt to cut your finger? To me it is a bit hard to guess, or imagine. Sure I could imagine it, but not really.

Couldn't think of an H other than half. The only time I describe the color of tomatoes is when OTR( other than red ;D

Gutting whitetails will make it slippery.  Reaching up inside while trimming out parts and pieces results in it being very slippery.

Fantastic shots.

That fire concentrates slow heat to the center of the pan right? Nice work there.

It's not how you got slippery- but why be pushing forward to cause the slip. I suppose you could clench the pinkie finger in, which could then act as a stop for the pommel.   :cheers:

Once again, wow.
What brand of miso soup? Did you add fresh tofu to it or is that how it rehydrates? It looks fantastic!

I'm now at the point of shamelessly stealing your meal ideas to impress a young lady friend with whom I've just started hiking.
Many thanks!
