    Due to multiple roadblocks, won't be able to get there until early Sat. Also decided to scrap the salad (freezing issues) and make a veg based soup. Can add whatever wanted.....even goat!

    I will have an extra tarp (a British basha), and a 20 snugfit bag just in case. As we are car camping, extra gear isn't an issue this time around

    Hi all! Im new to hangin but a long time hiker with a lifetime in the woods. Im gonna try to make it this weekend. If I cant talk my mom into watching my kids while my wife is working, im just gonna come for the day sat. Im only an hr away, so it couldnt be much closer, unless you guys had chosen mt monadnock, I can see it out my window as I type this. Are you gonna have a swap meet as some people had mentioned? If so has any time been established? I cant wait to meet some of you guys and see some cool hammocks.
    Mark

    ===> Well, I'll try, Most wood campfires are started and burned from the 'bottom up'. A small teepee fire with kindling is started, then one puts successively larger pieces of fuel/wood on top of the fire as it gets bigger, and consumes the smaller pieces.

    There are several fire lays for a self-feeding fire. The most common today is built by laying the largest logs/pieces as a flat base, close together. Then another, slightly smaller layer is laid crosswise on top of the base. This is repeated, alternating the size and crisscross orientation of each layer until you reach the desired height. You now have an almost solid pyramid made with alternating cross layers. You THEN build a tinder/teepee style fire on TOP of the pyramidal fire stack, tending that for a bit.

    As the fire burns, hot coals drop down into the lower layer(s) and ignite the larger pieces. Those pieces send larger coals down to the succeeding layers, the fire in effect "feeding" itself! A well built fire stack can last almost 12 hours, depending on fuel size, spacing of logs, and stack height, as the fire collapses into itself, creating a huge bed of nice hot coals ready for cooking breakfast in the morning!

    Makes some nice charcoal for water filtration and Pine Pitch glue, too!

    Why get up???

    Looking forward to starting the packing adventure tonight and bringing the boy on his first winter campout.

    I will bring my Mamajamba, doors, and a blue wallyworld tarp, but unless my winter palace arrives soon, I'd welcome a loaner.

    Given the possibility of bailing early if he doesn't 'get' the joy of winter camping, I am reluctant to specifically put in for a meal, but I will be bringing enough food for us and some to share. Dutch oven and double pie iron will be packed. I'm a tea junkie and will probably make several pots, so stick close and bring a mug if you enjoy a well-brewed pot of tea.

    I saw someone else is bringing some reflectix, I'll plan to bring along my roll, scissors, and foil tape so we can get a pot/pouch cozy workshop going while supplies last.

    Bummer, I was looking forward to checking out your fancy new gear.
    If it moves, you can eat it.

    ====>. I will also be bringing a few extra grill grates for those of you carry either a BushBuddy or Emberlit wood burning stove. Will also have a 3 ft roll of Hardware Cloth, Tin Snips, and a full roll of Max Duty All Weather DucT Tape- the Real Deal- not the phoney wimpy "Duck Tape" being Pawned off today! This is the real 100 MPH tape we know and love! So we can make Pot Stands for stoves, bigger grills, or animal traps as desired.
