Compliments to Terry Barney @ia_woodsman for getting the @bushcraftusa mest poncho right. It offers great ventilation options, fit and full coverage that includes keeping your pack dry. Includes a fitted hood and lash tabs on the sides to make it a multiuse tarp.

My goal for tomorrow... turn this stack of wood and leather into, well, something better than it is now. Figured I should clean the blade while I had the chance.

Made up a quick antler firesteel with @nataliahubisz for an upcoming outing trip.
She cut the antler, sanded the edges, drilled a matching diameter hole to the size of the rod and about 1/5th of the rod length, scratched the rod top so it would attach better to a few drops of 30minute epoxy and added a reflective lanyard.

Caught some mid afternoon Z's in my hammock on a breezy bug free hillside overlooking the river. Good use of time at the hottest part of the day and when the fish are least active.

My friend Wolfcri aka @a_jim_so_dashing 's hammock setup. I think it could be a Blackbird hammock in fronky bugnet under a warbonnet superfly tarp setup in porch mode and a piece of tyvek as ground cloth. To go porch mode, the tarp guyline simply gets wrapped around the top of a tall stick and then goes on the downward diaganol to the ground stake. 🛶

Learning to restore vintage tools and axes has been a wild ride for the past year or so, I'm still learning with every project and I don't expect that to change anytime soon. Between garage sales and gifts from friends and family I've slowly accumulated and restored nearly all the tools needed to carve handles by hand. This is my collection to date. For everyone that's followed along or given support, thank you so much! There will be more projects to come. -Tim

Camping with my best friends. ................. “With a large majority of prospective tourists and outers, “camping out” is a leading factor in the summer vacation. And during the long winter months they are prone to collect in little knots and talk much of camps, fishing, hunting, and “roughing it.” The last phrase is very popular and always cropping out in the talks on matters pertaining to a vacation in the woods. I dislike the phrase. We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed – with the necessity always present on being on time and up to our work; of providing for the dependent ones; of keeping up, catching up, or getting left. Alas for the life-long battle, whose bravest slogan is bread.” - George Washington Sears (Nessmuk); Woodcraft and Camping

Embrace the portage or paddle with the crowds. The best ponds and biggest fish will be waiting for you.

Smashed a Gold Kastmaster. Couldn't belive my 6# line and ultralight ugly stick n reel could handle this Northern Pike. I loosened the screaming drag as it dove and reeled up as it rested and won the fight but released it for another day.

If anyone had been wondering, I'm not dead! It's been busy between work, family and the weather so not much progress had been made on any projects. I was able to finish a handle for this boys axe today though, accompanied by some of the tools used to make it.
