    awesome, i met up with a girl called island who knows all the racoons far better than i so were gonna see what we can teach each other. theres already a small camping village about a 2 hour hike up a logging road but its too crowded for my tastes.

    refridgeration

    that pot-in-a-pot is a great idea! and no, keeping things cold isnt such a problem in canada this time of year, the real problem is bears. what i like about the wet sack in a tree is that its well out of the bears reach. ive had more than one camp busted up by hungry black bears.

    Storm kettles

    one of those kettles was given to me a few years ago from lee valley. their called Kelly kettles due to their origins on Irish fishing boats. anyhow, i don't use it often as its large, requires to be constantly topped up with more twigs and whatnot and just impractical to take with me. it stays...

    refridgeration

    i noticed there was no word as to keeping perishable food of any sort from spoiling without the aid of electrical appliances. while i suppose the most obvious method is to submerge the food in running water or in some cases snow (im canadian), this is not always an option. the other method i can...

    tanning/preserving hides/pelts

    yeah thats pretty much it. i find mixing the brains with some pee works well too. and i found out early that you hafta be careful when smoking the hide that you dont get it too close to the flames. seems like a no brainer but i was surprised how little heat it took to fuck it up

    blacksmithing

    yeah i had considered the rail anvil, probably much easier to come by than an actual iron anvil. this is the best info i found for a forge http://64.176.180.203/washtubforge.htm though i think ill just hook a bellows up to one of those old oil barrels cut in half and fulla charcoal.

    Coolest camp you've ever had?

    in terms of comfort my best was a really old cadillac in the bushes outside a little town in BC, only had one broken window so i duct taped a sheet of plastic over it, pulled out the front seats and the steering wheel/shaft, and put in another back seat from a nearby volkswagon to make one big...
