    Took the afternoon to do a few things I have been wanting to try.

    Liking my new stuff my gals got me for Christmas. I'm still in the middle of moving everything around and in the correct bag.

    I used a just add water broccoli and cheese soup I picked up to try out. Really easy bring 4 cups of water to a boil add the package, simmer for 5 minutes and it's done. Also delicious. Perfect for a trip, add some bread and a couple pieces of jerky and excellent meal.

    I wanted to duplicate an experiment @NWPrimate did not long ago involving hammering a nail into a blade with stones. Shaping/sharpening it on stones and creating a useable cutting tool. It didn't have a long cutting edge, but it had one.

    Driven into a piece of poplar with a stone. Bent and pressed into the handle material and wrapped in Muscadine vine. Turned out well.

    It's no ESEE but it will cut cordage or gut a fish/process small game. Make a feather stick ( kinda ) was fun to make.

    I made a hoko knife for old times sake too. I done some stone breaking this morning ( can't say knapping yet ) and have enough pieces of stone to make a hundred of these things. I remember making one for my bushclass, and I still have it sitting by my chair.

    Broke out the tomahawk to practice with a little today. I know it's not something you really have to practice at, but using unfamiliar tools to accomplish familiar tasks sharpen skills IMO.

    Soup out of a Stainley cup! Was good stuff! While I tried to recover from scalding my mouth.. I carved a stake out of a piece of maple.

    Was a good time out. Practicing skills, hot food, a little time to just pretend I don't have to work this week.. anywho! If it ever stops raining I have some fun stuff planned but I don't feel like doing it in the rain.. thought I'd share! Thanks all

    I tried an arrow point from a 10 p (?) nail. Wasn't pretty, but I wouldn't wanna get hit by it.

    I meant to also say that the nail knife on a stick was pretty interesting. The stone work, Brudda was better than any I can do. What kind of stone?

    I need to look into that muscadine binding. Hmmm

    Nice lil day trip. Looks like fun! :)

    If that soup had been Kraft brand, you could say the whole trip was Kraft oriented. [​IMG]
