Which of the two knocks you senseless quickest? :D
She does. How many women love to go camping and hiking? On one hike over the Easter weekend we went 8 miles in on one day and 8 miles out the next day up and down the mountains with knee deep snow in some parts to a place with no facilities (bathroom) carrying a 50 lb pack (she weighs 120 lbs) and liked it. I am so lucky to have her.

You certainly are!

All the best,

I like to read a book by candle light whilst a hearty meal is digested, followed by plenty of Zzzz's as I sway in my hammock. Bliss.

I always take a novel I'm reading, but after a day in the fresh air, a good feed, a glass or two of wine and ridiculous chats around the fire my eyes don't stay open for long.

a bit of wood,

and i'll try and knock out a lil whittling,..

extreme adrenaline whittling of course, which involves a belly full of sloe gin and a head torch.

i often wake up surrounded by shavings and some, erm,......masterpiece???? wondering where the inspiration came from,...

i came up with a little oak totem pole thingy over two nights last week, i'll post a pic when i get home

took a piece of dried oak and made this!

hahah not saying its anything to be proud of mind, but its on topic with the thead as it occupied me for a couple of hours round the fire with a few mates and a bottle.

i did it with a CRKT Side Hawg 2, (not the best knife to work with but its all i had in my bag other than an RC-6)

i used it the following night to ward off evil spirits from the tarp.
