A great start to Father's Day, glad you got out. The sausage and eggs looks good!
Always room at my camp for you sister, and the Adventure Kiddos as well.
What is that you are using for a grill grate?
Well done @MrFixIt . It's way cool to see you out and hanging by a fire! And happy father's day to you.
So, is that some of @Teeps fatwood I see? Or home Depot fatwood? Or were you able to scrounge some up by you?
Nice looking set up. I'm feeling all warm and fuzzy inside right now. For real.
In true hobo fashion it is a grate from a small refrigerator.
Some random shots from the back of camp, facing north.
Awesome! That is a legit hobo camp setup
There's more peace and happiness in that little patch of ground then any ivory tower!
Glad to see you have a little fun after your stressful couple of days this past week.
that sausage is TOO LEAN :-O
get the cheaper stuff that leaves more grease in the pan
the extra grease is used for splashing on those eggs to cook from the top and bottom at the same time whilst keeping said eggs from sticking
grease + some four and pepper sprinkled in it while stirring vigorously makes GRAVY (90wt)
i didn't get this fat eating diet sausage ;-)
BTW, picture packed threads like this ROCK!
Camp kitchen tidied up.
Debating on lunch out here...
The lunch debate was short.
Heating up some water for my noodles.
A deer visited briefly, had a conversation with my oldest ( we will find out what sex grandchild will be later!)
I spent my early years sittin in the front porch drinkin out of a paper sack, but it ain't easy bein me.
Yummy in my tummy!
I’d like to thank everyone who commented and followed along.
This is as a much needed respite for me.
I’ll reluctantly strike camp and plan for the afternoon of cooking ribs on the grill and a visit from my youngest daughter.
Yhank you for the bring along, brother.
(edit: that was supposed to say "Thank you". My prufe reedin es gitin wurs.)
Sweet! Glad you got out there in the woods, looks like you ate well too!
It was fun to follow along. Enjoy the ribs and your daughter's visit!
Great getaway!Thanks for sharing...
Thanks for bringing us along, it was cool to reread this and see you having a great time in the woods.
Happy Father's Day, JD! Enjoy every well-deserved second!
I enjoyed the trip, thanks for taking us all along!
A great trip JD. Happy Father’s Day! You are a great Dad and Granddad I’m sure.
Congrats on finishing Basic! (Again... LOL)
Ummm....the rider or the Harley?
Better yet... cook that squirrel for breakfast. That'll teach 'im. Lol.
Neat set up.
I like the campfire set up using the concrete blocks.
At my age, both
Thanks for sharing the report, Glad you got out! Looks like a great time.
Why in the world were you heating your beer???
Everyone knows that hobos drink their beer warm...
It's good to see you getting out brother.
It's good for the soul. Nice camp good food and great beer life is so good !
Thanks for taking us along
I was afraid of that. Do not grill meat directly on that grill, as refrigerator shelves are coated with zinc, which is toxic.
Actually, most wire refrigerator shelves are chrome plated with trivalent chromium. Trivalent chromium is a trace mineral that is essential to human nutrition.
Actually, it wasn't zinc. Turns out it's cadmium. https://www.ar15.com/forums/general/Using_refrigerator_shelves_as_cooking_grilles_/5-1249843/?
many of them are stainless steel most are chrome
Yep, and the last report of that happening was in 1959 from refrigerator shelves that were already old at that time.
Better safe than sorry I reckon
Good thing we don't live in California or they would cause cancer to
The grate is stainless steel.
Thanks for sharing your camp, this is a fun thread! Looked to be a great getaway for you, well done!
Most handsome hobo I ever saw
You better check your eyeglass prescription...
Really enjoyed the trip report @MrFixIt !
Glad to hear that. Grill on!
Good stuff, a small cooking fire beats any stove in my book. Hope you get out to your camp more often.
Great trip, fantastic documentation, congrats on earning your Bushclass 1 stripes!
Just going back and re-reading and seeing your pictures makes me even more antsy for fall to come around and I can get out again.
How did you not get destroyed by bugs sleeping on the ground?
pretty deluxe for a hobo camp.
It has been very hot and humid. I’m ready for cooler weather for sure!
Bugs don’t like old jarheads...?
I sprayed Permethrin around the camp the day before. I had bug dope on and was burning an oil lantern with citronella oil.
Wait till it cools down. I have several new additions to the camp due to the generosity of several members.
That will do it. I’m bad about putting on bug spray i hate how it makes my skin feel.
I user the DeepWoods OFF Dry type. It doesn't feel greasy.
just caught up on this thread; nice outing and stay
