A hatchet and a sharpening file and a fire
The hatchet has been used muchly. It has helped others. It has held an edge for a long time. It is very light, which makes it harder to split heavy logs, but easier to be precise. It is small and lives at the foot of the bed (with a machete).
The sharpening tool ( made by Smith’s) is used muchly, also. It folds up and hangs on a nail on a bed leg. Great for the must-have pocket knife.
This is the camp area. Third year here for the winter. “My”spot.
The open hood is to deter the animals. Old timers say so. Found the glove in the grocery store parking lot. Heavy duty leather. I can lift burning logs. The solar set-up (generator and solar panels) is doing great for my needs. I will go into a deeper look at what I use in the next post.
The fire in the mornings has been a great tool. Found myself getting annoyed if someone else started arranging the logs in the fire. Without asking me. Adding more wood. Without asking me. Who’s fire was it?
Ha. The fire in the morning is a great tool for learning.
