This looks like a good spot.
This tree was laid over by a tornado in the recent past. It will make a good shelter.
First, some limbs need to be removed. Swede uses his TOPS Anaconda 9 (shown). Not shown, Ghostwolf used his Fehrman First Strike.
Some supports were added.
Then some cut cedar branches were added for covering.
Tools of the trade.
Swede gathers stones to make a fire pit.
The guys have constructed a nice fire pit. Now Swede prepares to make a fire.
Let's make lunch.
Ghostwolf prepares some cactus leaves for the meal.
Plantain and cactus leaves both are on the menu.
The boys have an excellent set up going
Lunch cooking over the fire.
Is it done yet?
Swede relaxes after a fine meal.
Ghostwolf is geared back up for the hike out; his Maxpedition Fatboy S-Type hangs on one side and his Maxpedition Mini Rollypoly hangs on the other with a Nalgene bottle and stainless steel cup in it.
"Swede get that camera off me"
Now it is time for recreation. "My precious..."
Great job guys.
