    My daily bushcraft

    Write a couple of lines what you did in bushcrafting, or preparation for bushcrafting today...

    Me I sharpened the kids Mora 2000 knives to razor sharp, so now they are safe to use for the summer...well, spring...uh, the next couple of days I pray...
    Else I looked at a Mora crooked 162 spoon knife, but could not buy it as she-who-must-be-obeyed was also looking, but I have an excuse for going alone tomorrow :-)
    Victory awaits the one, that has everything in order - luck we call it
    Defeat is an absolute consequense for the one that have neglected to do the necessary preparations - bad luck we call it

    I don't know if this is 'proper' bushcrafting but, I went for a wander this afternoon. I scouted a few potential sneaky wooded overnight sites with a sea view and while there, scavenged some wood in anticipation of the arrival of the crook knife I've ordered. I did a second field test of my Crusader Cook Unit (review to follow... if I remember to save a copy before I post it) atop a sea cliff, then fashioned a lasso type thing, from the para cord I carry in my day pack, to retrieve the sunglasses I foolishly put down then kicked over the edge of said cliff. Then on the way back home, I practised expanding my ability to identify the flora around me, beyond the general classifications of Tree, Plant & Grass I have used for most of my life.

    A pleasant afternoon.
