    Default 01-26-13 pic heavy

    Just in time for the weekend, we got about seven and still counting inches of snow dumped on us....made for a nice outing.

    Didn't take a ton of pics due to having to remove gloves to operate the phone, but here are some.

    Also, Levi was dead set on killing me this trip. How, you ask?

    Well, as I am careening and sliding uncontrollably down a ridiculously steep and icy hill screaming at octaves far beyond what I am sure is considered safe for macho, he is convinced I'm trying to play and proceeded to bite the ankles of my pants.

    He was wrong in his conviction.

    Upon removing my person from the snow drift, I find a staff and commence trekking downward.

    Levi spies said staff and thinks: Oh look. Stick.

    Bite. Trip. Scream. Splat.

    I laid there a while this time as fuzzhead runs merrily of with my staff and figure that heck, I'm almost to the bottom.

    Regaining my footing, I gingerly creep forward. Several steps forward, I hear Levi's collar jangling behind me as he runs to pass me on the trail.

    I think nothing of it until he is probably five feet behind me, then I remember the five foot stick on the two foot deerpath.

    Sonofa....



    I crawled the rest of the way to the bottom after that time.

    As you can see I did throw together a sort of windbreak with the wool blanket and a dog/horse tether made of paracord I keep in the pack. Worked good for all it was.

    I was surprised, I found some dead grass covered in snow on the way in, reached to the center and got the driest of it, then put it in my pocket to dry. Kept moving it around to expose it to heat and it was actually dried out enough to light with the rod and then take pencil lead sized twigs I also gathered. Dried well relatively quickly.

    Hope y'all enjoyed!

    Edit: On an amusing note, I was just sitting here thinking of how much things I own get ridiculous nicknames and how they all have just gradually morph from their real name. IE, Levi: Levi> Levite> Fleabite>Squidbite.....

    Thank God no one else is in the woods to hear me hollering for Squidbite :what:

    Cool dog. My dog does some amusing stuff when were out on the trails, most of which he finds amusing and me not so much. Still the best hiking partner I've found.
