I like getting up early in the morning and getting everything put away and getting moving by 4-5 pm. Then I take it nice and slow until there is some light. I stop and eat breakfast by 8-9 am. Then I keep going until 12-1 pm where I cook a hot lunch and take a nap if want usually 1/2-1 hour and then I go until after dark and stop and eat when I feel like it. I usually don't stop for the night until at least 7-8 pm unless the weather turns fowl. I am usually exhausted at this point. Fire is nice, but for me my goose down is better.
My time killer in the woods is carving. To me this brings on a nice kind of meditation and the time flies as I try to carve a face or pattern into an old stick. Whistles are nice to make and the kids apreciate them as gifts. But I like freeform the best. I have made some pretty cool 'old woodsman' on some long solo trips. I have even made my wife some beads for her necklaces she like to make.
I think being out on the land is about listening. It is great free time away from the hustle and bustle of life.
When I go with someone it is usually one or several of my 4 kids (ages 5 - 12 years). Mini cards and mini dice are a favorite or ours. We even have a mini set of dominoes.
