    VIDEO: MN Winter Camping Symposium

    Here is a short & simple video made up of scenes from the MN Winter Camping Symposium at Camp Miller. There were quite a lot of HF folks present, as well as many ground dwellers in canvas tents with wood stoves! Shug stopped by on his way home from his hike with Stormcrow. Stormcrow helped me convert some interested ground dwellers. Fritz made a yummy spicy gumbo that he entered in the cook-off competition. Stairguy, Beep, Book, and several others were there, including some HF lurkers. It was a great weekend!

    I'm so bummed I missed out on going to this. Stupid weddings.

    It looked like a great time and it's always good to see some friends too. Were those spoons made by Book? I wouldn't mind buying one of those if they're up for sale.

    Thanks a lot for posting Mac and glad you had a good time too.

    Book made all of those spoons, as well as the baskets and the birch bark pack. He was far and away the best carver and the best bark weaver at the Winter Camping Symposium... a very talented guy!

    I feel the same way Stormcrow does about the spoon that Book carved. When Thing1 starts reaching for it, I smack her hand!

    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.
