The short of it is I made a 'smoker', just like I would here: green rack for drying the fish, very small fire and a green frame covered with wet moss and dirt to fill the holes and keep the smoke in. Basically it was working grand for a while but everything over there is so dry at that time of year it turned into a small signal fire, even the dirt burned. We put it out super quick, so it was safe, but it was pretty funny at the time.Hey! Hibrion,
I’m now very interested! How do you burn dirt? Might be something us Bushcrafters should know in case we run out of wood. Lol
I would finish with Keep Your Tinder Dry. But if you can burn dirt, I don’t think you have to worry about that.:You_Rock_
Do you push to failure every time, or does the program have variations?This is the first time I havent been sore after my first time on the water. This winter a started an exercise program for canoeing. Dumbbell Standing Row, Standing Lat Pull Downs, Weighted Standing Torso Twist. These exercises, I used light weight to failure, three sets. I also tried a Shoulder Endurance exercise. This is using a weighted pole and going through the paddling motion from a chair for an extended time period. Ive gotten up to 15 minutes per side. These exercises have really helped my early season paddling! On Saturday morning I paddled continuously for 1.5 hours as my wife and I trolled up river with no fatigue. We did stop a couple of time to land and release fish though.
Give it a try. Its really helped me out.
Hi! Arya,Do you push to failure every time, or does the program have variations?
Hi! ValeTudoGuy,Im very excited to get some more canoe experience. My plan is to buy one for family trips. We had a lovely trip down the Dordogne on tandum sit ons a couple years back, so I will likely get a 2+1 sit on soon with a mind to upgrade to a nice touring sit in at some point.
