So, it was a beautiful day in Upper Michigan today, and much too nice to spend it indoors. So I donned my old wooden showshoes and headed East towards the property line. Walking through the pine plantation I could see deer trails like mini highways crisscrossing the side hill as they made their way to the horse pen to gorge on our alalfa bales. As always, in case I want to build a fire, I grab some birch bark. I no longer have to stuff it in my pocket though, since I now have a nice forager pouch. Shasta is daring me to take some bark! I walked to the top of the hill, to one of the spots where the kids and I used to hang out. It's just a grouping of balsam trees with an opening inside. Here is where I set up. These are my favorite wooden shoes. I took my pak-chair today to see how well it did. It did very well. I didn't have it loaded very heavy, but it was a comfortable carry. I loaded my Trangia burner, with some Evernew? pot things that fit in the Trangia. Also brought an Optimus cookset that I received awhile back in a GAW. My Snowpeak cup, and a nice canvas pouch made by @saveitforsunrise that I got from Secret Santa. The pouch fits two Altoids tins perfectly. I also brought some sausage sticks and my red Nalgene @Broke bottle. Won't you share with me? Please?... I always take care of my girl. More to follow. Stay tuned.
