    Yeah, she tried this with me at first and I told her the one doing the cutting does the holding too! I have yet to let her use a really sharp knife but she is good about keeping her fingers out of the cut.


    Thanks Craig, yep we had a great time, she likes picnics and hikes. The sheath is doing great, still loving it. I already know, seems like yesterday it was the oldest daughter out there with me, time really does fly by. Yep it's a hard to beat combination of finger food, and something she knows she gets to cut :)


    Thanks Bryan, glad you enjoyed them.


    It's a WMA over in the next county to the west of me. It's cool because it's only ten minutes away and almost 30,000 acres of woods.


    Gotta pack some food, it's a comfort/fun thing! It's about time I do some cooking while we're out. I have a friend that makes awesome jerky, but she says it's too spicy...


    Thanks Jeff glad you enjoyed the photos, we really enjoy going out there.


    This is definitely my favorite time of year, the photos don't ever do the colors justice. The sheath looks great and works great too. I like how it rides and I love the retention.


    Yeah, if it weren't for the little one I'd be sorely missing the times like this with my oldest. As it is she still goes with me sometimes and our conversations have changed much over the years.


    Thanks man, it was a great day out. Yep it sure is, that is one John (Sursum Owner) gave her a little over a year ago. She always makes sure I have her knife too.


    Thanks man, it was an awesome time.

    What an exquisite memory that will be for her and a fine start to a collection. The two of you will obviously share a lifelong connection to edged steel. :thumbup:

    Yep, a fond memory for me too.

    Yeah, we share a fondness for edged steel, the woods, and cheese...but now I have someone I have to share my blue cheese dressing with :grumpy: :D That's something I've never had to worry about before...

    Really nice trip out there !! Great foliage and wildlife.
    My trip durations are getting limited with my son ( 9) because we're hitting below 0 deg.C here and I can't make fires where I go. You're area still looks pretty mild weather-wise. Kids are great fun in the woods !

    Thanks for the kind words guys. Our colors seem to be really nice this year, and yes our weather is still really mild, only pretty cool at night yet and even then not bad at all.

    Thanks man, and she sure is a hand full too :) , and I agree. I definitely need to get some of these printed off and in an album. It won't be all that long till these will be the good old days...


    It would have been hard pressed to be improved upon that's for sure.


    Thank you, glad you enjoyed the post, and isn't she though! I was just looking through the pics from our first hike yesterday. This is the second time around for me so I already know to take in as much as possible and just how quick it really will pass. Much MUCH quicker than you think during all of the 2:00 am feedings and diaper changes that's for sure!!
