Here's bel getting ready to start camp chores, she finds it exciting
Bel can't wait to use the hatchet. But for now she can only hand it to me with the sheath on.
Fire prep. Some dry grass and bel is ready to go with the small sticks on top. She gathered all those herself. She knows the drill :)
And we're burning
Decided to take an old Buck 110 out today. It's older than I am but still has a solid lock and it's sharp. You can't beat an old classic.
Lunch of PB&J sandwich's and goldfish crackers, a happy camper
Bel loves hot chocolate on the outings.
Well on BladesandBuschcraft there's a monthly project of carving a spoon. So I thought I'd give it a try using only the hatchet. Here we are after splitting a piece of wood.
Trying to carve or drill out a hole for the spoon
starting to take shape
Now we're getting somewhere
Well it will certainly win the ugly award.
But it does hold liquid. So I suppose it's a success. Though it might take you 6 hours to eat a bowl of soup with it.
Bel exploring the area a bit. It was a nice day though on the warm side.
And here's a parting shot of us. I didn't realize bel was being goofy and making a funny face when I took it
good times and memories as usual. It's great being a dad.
Thanks for looking
