The last week has been busy around here. We built our new cook shack (with the roof still to be completed), ran a full Summer Survival Weekend Course, and ran a private 2-day survival workshop. Today will be the first day I’ve had a chance to write (and take a deep breath and sit still for two minutes). The cook shack has turned out great. Having a permanent home for our outdoor kitchen will simplify meal preparation and planning. And it’s a beautiful little structure. The Summer Survival Weekend Course went very well. After a few days of heat, rain and oppressive humidity, the skies cleared when people arrived and we had perfect weather. Everyone got along great and we were able to cover a wide variety of topics. I also put together a simple bucket shower to complement the sunshowers in our new outdoor shower – I’ll post a how-to in the coming week.
