Friction Fire, Axework, Canoeing and a Plant Walk

The ESSP students and I had a busy day yesterday doing axework, working on friction fires, one-match fires, and going on a 3-hour plantwalk. The long-term shelters were finished, and last night we had a campfire and baked some sourdough biscuits in the stone oven. Everyone is excited to get out into the canoes today, and if we can get axe sheaths, bow-drill kits, and our plant of the day studies done early we’ll get on the water before lunch. This is the best weather of the year in northern New England, with warm (sometimes hot) days and cool nights, meaning no bugs. Last night it dipped into the 40’s, but it will get into the 70’s today under a deep blue sky. Pleasurable weather for outdoor living.

I added some more photos to our 2006 ESSP photo gallery, and will continue to do so daily. Let me know what you think of them.

Typos, Etc.
Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
