"My Sven Saw works just fine for cutting dead firewood."
That's money well spent! An axe is fairly useless out there but don't tell the Boy Scouts.

It's only useless to those that are not splitting "real" firewood: https://youtu.be/GYslt0cLTMQ

Clever but there is no way I'm going to buck up 14" diameter wood by hand in the first place. 3-6"diameter seems about right. Easy enough to cut and then split with my comparatively light 18" Fiskars axe.

Gotta have some nice straight grain for that! I love the sound of a bowling alley strike at the end...

I too enjoy the beauty of winter time. Picked up a snowtrekker and kni co stove a few years ago. Last year a 9ft sled. Also set up a pulk for my friend to use for his gear or wood.

Start off easy and car camp at adk loj with gear. Car is there with extra stuff if you need it, plus if it's not for you after one night you can pack up and go home.

I set my stuff in the yard many times during the winter and invite friends over for some warm drinks. cold outside and very warm in tent depending where you sit inside.

Few years ago we had a mini gathering in Southern ADK I believe, lot's of fun, I'm in for a gathering.

That raffle looks great, I'm sending in some $. Thanks for the link, bio.

"It's only useless to those that are not splitting "real" firewood"

That's clever but we were talking about camp wood not the firewood business. By the time you get that split I'll have already finished eating supper. BTW be careful grabbing logs and firewood. There might be something hiding around or underneath it. Nothing smells better than the aroma of a campfire when you get a whiff of it while paddling.

Photos are great, even if photo-shopped:

From their FB page:

We have our Winners:

Jackie K. takes home a Snowtrekker Tent.

Frank H. has a shiny new Four Dog Stove that will soon turn lovely shades of Blue and Purple.

Dan L. spent all of Saturday night by our campfire in his Empire Anorak.

Trevor B. lives far enough North that he *might* be able to use his BRS toboggan soon.

Thanks Bio. The only thing I ever won was a case of black olives when I was 16...

They would have tasted mighty fine in a Snowtrekker tent next to a fired up FourDog wood stove!

Sounds like you're overdue for a 2nd case.












But don't worry.
All of our numbers will be up soon.

If it were coming from anyone but you, Sero, I wouldn't be confused as to whether both or either of those statements were threats.
