Fire, Snow and cooking
Re-Blogging and Linking to two separate articles here. Rogers Blog where he explains how to setup a campfire and a new to Youtuber, a prepper and self reliant buddy of mine who has a done a series of videos to show people how to make a winter shelter and how to build a winter fire.
This is a skill that anyone who lives in any climate where there is cold and winter should know of. This post will have some of my own info included, some re-blogged info from Roger’s blog along with a re-blogged video series from a ex Canadian Military buddy of mine who lives way out in the flatlands of Canada!
This winter campfire photo was taken in January a couple of years ago. The next photo shows the same fire pit in the summer time.
A great way to build a fire in winter if you have a camping spot for year round use or look for established camping spots along any trail or campground. Remember you do not have to always re-invent the wheel, just keep it simpler and it works.
Same firepit in summer time as the winter shot above.
A blog post by RMACTSC where he explains how to setup a campfire
…. excerpt.. KINDLING is the foundation of any fire. It is made of lightweight materials that are capable of burning quickly and igniting heavier materials. Kindling can be made from a mixture of twigs, tiny sticks, slivers of shaved wood, dried leaves, paper, cardboard, cotton balls, dryer lint, birch bark, dried grass, dried pine needles, etc. You’ll be using small sticks to then form a tepee and get your fire started. …. read more….
The following link is to the topic of winter fire on the CanAmPreppers.net forum
excerpt … If you are in the bush and had nowhere to make a fire but on the snow, and no rocks were available because they’re all under the snow and ice, what would you do? … read more…
The new YouTubers in action, building a winter fire and winter shelter heated by fire
The next is a series of photos created while I was at Buroak Wilderness Adventures this summer. The owner of the camp a buddy of mine created a stunning all season fireplace/pit. Just look at all the features this cooking camp fire pit has;
Excellent campfire setup.
Dinner is almost ready, can you not just smell the yummy goodness! Fresh field potatoes, fresh picked corn (non gmo), fresh farm raised free range chicken.
Kinda making me hungry all over again! Plus the smell of freshly brewed coffee all cooked on hard and softwoods.
Remember the old ways, remember this is how Humans have lived for thousands upon thousands of years.
This is one of the reasons your computer screen saver is of the outdoors and not your bosses cubical or office! just saying !
Hopefully these skills will be appeal to you, so get out and learn or get out and practice but above all just get out and have some fun folks!
Until next time Cheers ~wild_E

Zelda at doggy park, this is the first time she ever played tug with another dog that I know of. She was also gentle to this little fellow while playing as well.
This is a silly post, a post on my header pics so nothing more than just a smile for me and hopefully for some of you as well.
The Top two, are considerations for the next header, though I am not sure where I will go after the current Header Image.
The two on top of this line are maybe Header Images
The next sets are in order of appearance from Newest to oldest.
Well the only similarity for the Header pics are that they are Horizontal and taken by me, except for the blue tree image supplied by WordPress.
I like looking at clouds any time of the day, but my favourite time of the day is Sunrise and Sunset.
My Grandmother once told me that the rays of light you see are the souls going up to Heaven. It is a nice thought and comforting to see as well.
In this picture which is the end of my driveway, well to be exact it is across the road from the end of my driveway and a great source of contentment for me as well.
I give this image to the world so you may see one of my views, thus preserving in our minds a shared image of such natural beauty.
Dedicated to R & D across the world from Zelda and I, so enjoy a little Canadian Sunshine from us to you.
CHEERS to all.
Actually since blogging this, the Sun came out and everyone,, and I mean everyone has been sunny disposition, friendly, happy, smiling, cheerful and just nice people!

Always give a helping hand
