Random thoughts

It seems strange to be back from the TGO challenge and doing nothing. At present I am planning my next trip. People often ask me how can I afford to travel now that I am not working? Well, basically, I have no social life, my needs are not great, I do not eat out and I keep food costs down.
My next trip is going to be different. It is more in the way of a bushcraft trip. There is a destination I have in mind. My equipment is going to differ too,more stuff carried. However, mileage is not on the agenda. It will be a time of wandering, of observing. Included in my kit will be my binoculars,, bushbuddy stove, small 10 oz axe, folding saw and neck sheath knife. Ideally I would take a tarp, however, for personal reasons, that is not practical. Food will different too, my plan is to make frying pan bread and biscuits. if anyone has any suggestions in regards to smoked bacon please contact me.

Axe, saw, knife? There's a sequence with Arnie in Commando that just flashed to mind (link).

She'll be back ;-)

Well, you are welcome to pop over and join me. Basically I am heading over to Mull on Monday week and will probably be over there for at least a week, probably two.If you bring some sausages you can have fry pan bread and sausages for breakfast.
