    Cooking a whole pig at camp.

    I've helped spit roast wild boar and sheep a few times. Idealy you have a couple of spikes going through the animal at the shoulders and haunches. These go through the main spit at right angles, to stop the spit turning in the animal, rather than the whole thing going round. It helps if you...

    crashing trees

    Wierd isn't it. I was leading a class in plant id when a huge beech tree fell over about 200 yards away. There was no wind at all, just a huge splintering crash. I can tell you, it really took the students minds off the edible plants they were looking for!!

    Why the hell did I bother!

    I was asked to leave a tent ( an old but excellent canvas ridge tent) at a gathering that I was leaving early, as it was being used as a cook tent. When the person who borrowed it returned home, they left the tent behind, as they "could'nt fit it in the car"! When I drove the three hour drive...

    Take Care

    Hi Fallow I havn't been following the threads involved, so can't comment on the content.
