    I'm quite fortunate to have friends that share multiple common interests with me like @JV3

    Here's a glimpse into one of them, backpacking and our last trip.

    I show up into camp and I'm handed a BK62, pay me when you can is what I'm told.

    My son's set up, the boy likes orange what can I say? You can even see him in the orange fleece back there processing firewood :D

    Hanging over a rock wall because I don't need flat ground ;-)

    Nobody likes smoke in their face... orange theme continues with the orange handled BK14

    Yep I'm lazy if ya let me be

    Break time at camp

    Our friend wanted to check out one of my jwbensinger knives, it's become my go to neck knife.

    He wanted to check out the BK62 too, so action shot!

    It was so good

    Got down to 18F which caught us a little by surprise, a little woobie love solved that issue while I waited for my blueberry tea and everyone else to get up

    Breakfast with my youngest, still can't believe he turned 18 last month

    Hope you all got out for one last winter trip like us

    I need more time with it to see what I can do with it, every time I went to do anything with wood I was grabbing the 9, the times I did remember it's nice and slicey. Cut meat easily, made a feather stick and batoning was fine. We'll see next trip

    @trailbum wait till you see the boy, he's as tall as I am now! He'll probably pass me. I also don't know how he hikes with all that crap on, I'm sweaty with a base layer and fleece at 25F and he's still dressed like he's in camp
