Hey folks.  Got out for a quick trip in the woods the other day.  Here's the dirt road that leads to the "wild" so to speak.  LOL!  This is fenced off so no one is able to drive down.  Just makes a good walking path to get in there



Here's bel inspecting every rock and stick a long the way, haha



and here's the blade I was using for the first time, a Redneck Woodlore, it's a beaut if you can't tell



here's some thick woods, we ventured in a little ways



arrived at a suitable enough spot, here's the pack shot



okay okay mine's the left one :)

well I got the camp chores going.  I downed a dead standing tree with the hatchet and got some small logs sawed up



I usually use my hatchet/axe and saw to do my wood processing but wanted to try out my new knife a little more so I used it to break down the wood for me









after that it was time to get the fire going.  first attempt here failed as I only used grass and the wood I had was a bit too bit for it to catch quickly.  Thought it was worth a try though



I got out some fatwood and of course that did the trick





now were getting somewhere



here's bel awaiting the results



coffee and hot chocolate, and a welcome toast for a new blade



quick view from our camp spot



well I did a little carving with the knife and it worked quite well.  This knife has a very very sharp edge on it



Bel was exploring the area right around camp and seemed to hone in on the creek we were beside





here's a heavy deer crossing



well that was about it.  We packed up and headed out as the sun was close to setting. 



All in all it was a very enjoyable time out with my daughter and some much needed fresh air.  The knife performed great for me.  I am truly happy with it.  If you want to read more on this knife and what my thoughts were you can go to this link here

Wonderful trip report OE. Thanks for taking us along :)
That's some good looking country there in OK you've got to explore :thumbsup:
If you don't like that knife, you can send it my way ;)

BTW...
I like your new camo and pink lined 'bushcraft' pack. Did it come with a 'bushcraft Barbie' :lol: :rofl:

Great post and thanks for sharing your time with your trail buddie. Those are precious times.
As soon as the extral $$ are avail. I'll be ordering a RN knife. Max let me hold his and it feels good in the hand.
Again Thanks for sharing,

Thanks for taking us along with you also, OE!
:thumbsup:


   Glad to see you & Bel had a chance to get out in the sticks together again! It's great to see the curiousness in lil ones. The fresh air & "dirt time" is good for all of us too!
:)


Nice to see you are very happy with the knife working well for ya too! I'm thinkin a lot of us thought it would be a good one, for sure...
:)
I love being out in the woods!   I like this quote from Mors Kochanski - "The more you know, the less you carry". I believe in the same creed, & think  "Knowledge & honed skills" are the best things to carry with ya when you're out in the wilds. They're the ultimate "ultralight" gear! ;)

LOL wolfy!  It's been slow around here so it's understandable.  But OMG is time ever flying!  Bel is so small... She was 4 on this trip, now she's 10 and turning 11 this summer!!   What is happening???

Life goes by about the same speed as a race horse with you holding on to the tail.  It never slows down either.  My kid is 47 years old this year.  He was 13 a couple of weeks ago.
A man who carries a cat by the tail learns  something he can learn in no other way.

I ended up with that blade, then traded it to someone, Crash I think.
