    My girlfriend and I took a small "getaway" this weekend and i convinced her to go on a short hike with me yesterday morning. We spotted this sweet little hooch about a mile down the lonestar trail from 1375 in New Waverly, TX. They did everything using natural materials and built the frame around a downed tree. Since it got chilly the night before, we left them a mag bar and striker...just in case the bow drill didn't work. But either way, beautiful workmanship and it was a really cool find for her first hike! Thanks for looking.

    I've never found anyone else's stuff but i did find a piece of gear I had lost the year prior!

    I had an old whistle that was my dads from when he was in the National Guard, I carried it as a distress whistle when i went hiking and such. When I was around 15 I was on an annual trip in the Idaho mountains. We'd set up a base camp and then do overnights and day hikes out of the camp. On the overnight we had camped in the woods next a meadow. The next year we go back to the same place and someone says "Hey guys, I found this whistle hanging on a tree." Imagine my surprise when it was mine haha!

    that's funny as heck that we were there too... wonder if it was a fellow BCUSA member, or an orphaned bushcrafter who doesn't know we exist...

    My son and I were hiking in the back 18,000 acres of Barksdale AFB and saw the bones of a model T on the trail

    I think, brother, it was made just to be made... for aesthetic properties if you will.

    still have no idea what its original purpose is, really looks like a piece of a stove. so funny how i was thinking about how annoyed i was with myself for not getting my wood-gas stove running as nice as the ones i've seen here and on utube, and i looked at my feet and this thing was sitting there.
    i think the smaller hole in the top is a pivot for a cap, gotta be a stove or burner of some kind. notice the handles on the sides.

    Looks like a vent cap that would cover a chimney or smokestack.

    I think that is a burner they placed in orchards when there was a threat of frost after the buds/blossoms had set.
