I was scheduled to attend a business event in Rock Springs, WI, but did not want to stay in the venue's dorm rooms or eat their cafeteria food, so I checked in to the state park. I attended meetings all morning and again in the evening, but had each afternoon as free time at my camp site. I wanted to cook as much as possible over the fire, so I had to prep the wood I bought at the camp store. It was hard oak, and I struggled with feather sticks. Ended up with more broken-off curls than feathers. I need way more practice. I used birch bark as the base to which I added little shreds of fat wood, and lit it with a ferro rod. Some of what I cooked in my camp Dutch oven or on the grill included bannock/biscuits, spam "steak," Cornish game hen and potatoes. I saved the 2 extra biscuits for lunches of cheese and PBJ. This Spam was the best! It tasted like chicken. Then the next night, I had real "chicken." Continued . . .
