DAY TRIP
texas hoodlums

 

 

Our own Hoodlum Ghostwolf teamed up with fellow Hoodlum Swede for a day of outdoor skills practice.  Their chosen location was a wooded area of the Texas Hill country.

 

This looks like a good spot.
Hanging in the tree next to Swede is his gear strap which holds his Maxpedition M-5, Maxpedition Mini Rollypoly with Nalgene, stainless steel cup, billy can, and work knives.
Swede made the gear strap himself from leather.

 

 

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.

 

 

 

Fire.

 

 

Let's make lunch.

 

Ghostwolf prepares some cactus leaves for the meal.

 

Plantain and cactus leaves both are on the menu.
Ghostwolf uses a knife made by Swede to prepare the wild edibles.

 

The boys have an excellent set up going

 

Lunch cooking over the fire.

 

 

Is it done yet?

 

Swede relaxes after a fine meal.
Near his feet you see the spoon he carved resting in his stainless steel bowl

 

 

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..."

 

 

 

"My turn."

 

Great job guys.
