    Just got back, and got some pics uploaded, there will be more, no doubt.

    We had a good time, camped out, practiced a few skills, but more fellowship, than woodsmanship. :D

    Upon arrival.

    Well, we had a GREAT TIME!! I got pretty tanked on Friday, me and Trade got turned around on Ethan' Roadway systems (lots of Gator Trails :D), and wound up, polishing a half a bottle of Jack off while getting back. We had to clear the trail, twice, once with a Tram 'chete/FBF 'chete, and a Stihl chainsaw. Good times.

    We partied until about 2am the first night, raising caine, and laffin' our butts off. We had a roarin' fire, plenty of food, and some beverages, from mild to fuel for drag cars :D.

    Saturday was kinda rough on me, breakfast consisted of 600mg of Exedrin, some potassium pills (thanks again Mrs. Trade), some jerky and cheese. We continued our fun times, just BSN around the camp. I had to make a run to the store for more beer (yeah, I know), and some other stuff. While I was gone, Ethan brought everyone down to the shop, for some show and tell, knife playin', and choppin' of the wood. We hung out as the temps swung to the upwards of 90+ degrees, no moving air at all. With a hangover and the heat, I thought it would be a good idea to make bowdrill kit. We played with the new knives, Mini Mag, Mini Bowie, and Mini Camp. They rocked out loud. Ya'll gonna love'em. We checked out the new BK6's and BK1's, and made our cook fire, bowdrill kits, and kindling with the Machax, Tweeners, and BK2's all around. What a good time.

    I had to keep dousing myself with water from the 275 gallon waterbuffalo E had put up there for us to use, but I was having a blast. We spent the evening building our cook fire, BSN, and playing with wood and lots of knives. I took a Tram 'chete, FBF 'chete, Triflex Mora, BK77, BK9, BK2, Junglas, and aBK14. The BK14 and BK2 was used the most of all. Imagine that. :D

    This morning, we ate some steak and eggs, with garlic, taters, and beer. Took our pics, broke camp and headed out. The others will be posting up their side of the weekend, but man it was fun.

    Next time, I hope more of ya'll can make it. :D

    I supposedly received five Bushcraft Buddy Bonus Points because Moose used my spindle and bow to make fire.
    It's was all a pack of lies though. The so-called "redemption website" turned out to be nothing but porn. :eek:
