Headed out late Friday morning for a weekend in the lower ADK's at the camp My buddy and I made on his parents land. I got up there around 1PM, my buddy already had his gear set up. I had my tent up, my gear set up, and ready to enjoy the weekend by 2. We talked for a bit, then I ate my lunch which was a couple beef sticks and a cheese stick. Then I staged the wood for the first nights fire, and tested my budget folding saw. Then I gave my bro the knife I bought him, and we had a small chat about that knife and my personal experience with it. He loved the knife and appreciated that I thought of him and I explained what this knife will and will not do. Dinner time- I made home made clili-mac on Thursday for us to have Friday. I also put the dry ingredients together to make garlic bannock Thursday. I made the bannock and we heated up the clili-mac. First time my bro has had bannock, and he liked it. I used my one burner propane stove to make the bannock and heat up my supper. Then, time to make fire. Fat wood shavings, my ferro rod, and the SRK got it done. Just after supper, some sunset catching on a pile of brush caught my eye. It looked like the brush was on fire ( it wasn't! ) near a tree behind my tent. So, I grab my phone to go get a pic. I get close enough to get the pic, then something catches my eye. The biggest porcupine I have ever seen strolls in and starts climbing the tree. I did not get a pic, and my video does not show the scale of this thing! It was HUGE! It looked more like a mid sized bear cub then a porcupine. It climbed the tree and stayed there. Not sure when it left, but it was well after we hit the rack. Saturday morning, I woke up early, hit the wee-wee tree, then decided I was going on a bushy tail hunt. I didn't see any ( I didn't expect too ), but it was still a hunt, and I got some nice pics along my jaunt. I did a loop around our camp area, and honestly just enjoyed being out hunting. I get back to camp, make some coffee, and sorry, again head to the p-t. I spook two does out of the area I had just passed through. They weren't happy. They 'barked' ( if you don't know what that noise is, or haven't heard it, try a search, there may be some info about this noise a pissed off doe makes ) at me and ran a bit, but not far. I tried to reach in my pocket for my phone for a pic or maybe video, and when I shifted my weight, a snapped a twin, they barked at me again and were gone. We hiked, took some pics and video, In the afternoon I wanted to do some plinking cans with my 22LR. I found a nice stump with a down hill slope so we weren't sending rounds off into nothingness. The first ammo I used did not agree with my M&P. It would lock up and jam the rifle. I went back to camp and got my hunting ammo ( CCI Stingers!!!!!!), and my bro shot an AR style rifle for the first time. He loved it. Had an odd issue with plinking cans. The can really wasn't moving. I thought maybe I had bumped the rifle causing the red dot scope to be off. Low and behold, I was on point, and I was hitting the can, but the can wasn't moving. Back to camp, stage wood, get ready for dinner. Cooked up a couple steaks. Tried using that boil water and drop Uncle Bens Micro Rice in and it heats up, that was a huge fail! Ate our supper, and drank some beers. I really needed this trip! I had a great time, I took a ton of pictures, shot a ton of film, I just have to sort it all out. Resize the pics, and put a coherent video together.. As Soon as I get the pics scaled I will get them in this thread.
