    New Video...Shugs St. Croix Saunter Part 1

    Off to the woods last Thursday for two nights of hanging. Wanted to go way up North to the Pow Wow Trail or Superior Hiking Trail but time got away from me and weapons deer hunting season was starting Saturday Nov. 8th and lots of trail and State Parks were closed.
    Not St. Croix State Park though. They offer a couple of backpack sites .... with shelter huts.... so I paid and then went and stealth camped near those sites. The hiking was easy ... even mundane but the woods were alive with critters and shotguns.
    The weather was cold, rainy, windy with snow flurries at times. Wonderful!!!!
    Lots of hammock hanging as well as some "Gear Gab" .... review the "Stickpic". Thanks Rod! Also the J. Falk "Bushwacker Compact Wood Stove".
    Talk about Pop Tarts.
    Part 2 will be available as soon as I get some edit time. Off on the road for a week to Idaho. More of the same.........
    Thanks for giving it a look.

    I apologize for the dodgy film quality.
    Watch "in high quality".

    Great video, Shug!

    One tip for using the ferrocium rod+striker combo that you demonstrated in the video -

    Instead of moving the striker across the top of the rod, hold the striker steady just above where you want the spark, and instead pull the rod. That will let you direct the spark much more effectively.

    Superb, Oh Shug of the Great White North! Do you have any southerner in 'ya? I'm referring to your eating of GRITS!

    I think a Bushwacker ( Bushbuddy?) is on my Christmas list!

    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    Lived in Enoree, SC, Shelby, NC and Charlotte, NC so I love me some grits!
    The Bushbuddy and Bushwacker are two different stoves. The J. Falk Bushwacker is less expensive and the only one that I have fooled with. I really like it and it certainly has its place in my backpacking line-up.

    Fun times Shug.

    I'm not sure I can get the kids to eat whole wheat Pop-Tarts, but they sure do love cheese grits...
