Using our bushcrafting knives for bushcrafting.

It was a pleasant day in the north land and a new bushcraft book had arrived so we  decided to play with fire and cook a little supper.
We decided to try a new pot hook arrangement that looked fun to build and went in to the back 40 to find suitable raw materials.  It is really fun to have someone to help get camp set up, while one of us was prepping the tinder bundle the other guy can prep the kindling and bigger stuff. A fire was going and burning nicely in about five minutes.  I'm pretty sure we had the pot hook set complete in about 10 minutes.  The next one will go faster as we had to find out the best way to get stuff done.  We are proud of the fact that we can use the knives we make to do this stuff.  
Supper was hot chocolate with pork chop soup.
Pork chop soup is a nice one pot meal.  2 beef or pork ramen noodle flavor packs, 2 medium sized pork chops cut in to cubes, 2-3 medium sized spuds, 2 carrots, and a small onion.  Chop up the veg in to fit in your mouth pieces and throw it all in pot with enough water to cover all the pieces and boil for about 20 minutes.
