    So I went out winter camping a few weeks back, the week we had that winter storm, ended up in Georgia. Just figured I'd post a couple of the junglas pics from the trip. I ended up batoning almost all the firewood with the junglas, man I love this knife. Threw a Hest pic in there too.

    This was about a third of the wood that was split. Seemed like a good time for a pic.

    Wow, how was your arm after all that? I'm assuming you were wearing gloves for the vibrations.

    What is this Junglas you speak of? I thought it was only mythical, much like a unicorn.

    Looks like a LOT of chopping. Bet the hands were a little tingly after that...

    You guys are all really killing me with all these Junglas posts lately.
    I've been trying to hold out for the LazerStrike, but damn, I'm lovin' that Junglas.
    About the only thing holding me back right now is that they're harder to find at the moment...

    Yeah my arms were well worked but no gloves I kind of melted them in the fire before hand.too close to the fire, Oops. It definitely found a permanent place in my go to gear. I didn't take a pic of the blade afterward but after all that work it was still surprisingly sharp and no dings or nicks in the blade, it took a beating for sure. I had only had it for a week or so before the trip so it didn't see much use before this.

    Another one of those baton threads. I think everyone here is turning gay. :D

    Glad the Junglas held up well.

    The batoning wasn't planned, I broke hummus axe the first day out. Chopping wood in the dark with a unfamiliar axe. Stupid combination. Oops.

    Ha, we were out for four days, that was about a day and a half worth of wood and we kept the fire going all day long too. It snowed the first say and rained the second so everything was thoroughly soaked. Nothing wanted to burn unless it was turned into toothpicks.

    Some days when you want fire, you gotta chop it yourself. I tried to call my cordwood guy and get him to deliver to GPS cords. Hell, at $75 a face dumped, It's worth a try right? yea.... he apparently doesn't do airlifts.

    I usually just pack in my kerosene heater and 30 gallons of kero.
