I got a Old Town Pack canoe


At last, the canoe has come. :)
I ordered it in early April.
In three months, it has arrived yesterday
from half the globe away.




These are well wrapped.
Though these are single seater,
but have big built.




Coolfish, who had ordered together,
unpacks wrapping paper.




The paddle is 58"
Canadian Grey Owl.




Make a toast to our boat!
Chinese draft beer is unusual delicious. :)




Its specifications.
light!
wide!
It goes well.




I keep these in the warehouse.
After this rainy season,
I'll go to lake or river.

A newcomer outdoor buddy


Bingo, my puppy, grow up rapidly.
As time goes six month,
she is like a grown-up.
She feels lonely having no one
to play with.




Thus a newcomer arrived. :)
My friend's dog, a golden retriever mongrel,
gave birth to eight puppies.
I adopted a puppy of them.




1.5 month
male
optimistic
gluttonous




My wife and I name
him as 'Keum-dong-yi',
that this Korean means golden boy. :)

"How do you do?"

A frying pan with polding handle


A few days ago, I read some posts of BCUSA,
that were pan handle remodeling.
And I bought a pan under $3
at discount house.




The rainy season brought with it a lot
of rain for days on end.
A typhoon is approaching the Korean Peninsula.
Being stuck to house,
I remodel the handle of pan.




3mm thick aluminium plate,
7 holes drilled.




The handle is detached with a
butterfly head bolt.
I cut and tap to the original
handle mount.




The diameter of this pan is 20cm.
My Trangia folding handle pan is 22cm.




Its weight is 273g.




The Trangia's weight...

First Sami style coffee bag


I see a sami style pouch in BCUSA,
and decide to make my pouch.
But my needlwork is very coarse.
The end product is ugly, bulky.




So this is used for food material,
not for coffee and tea.
I'll make another pouch a little small.




Under the tarp, I crack walnuts,
shell peanuts, pistachios, pine nuts.
These will be birds feed.




I dry off completely,
and grind these altogether.
Small herbivorous birds
will gather around these. :)

Wood fire piston


It is growing hotter day by day.
Thus I am idle by day and work by night.
A electric shock bug killer
is packed with bugs.




I make two fire pistons,
the one is made by steel,
the other wood.
The steel piston is made
for calculating sizes of
wood piston.





Length : 115mm
Weight : 38g
Material : hard birch wood




I make a leather pouch for fire kit.
My fire start kit is more abundant
than before.




But, the wood piston has lower frequency
of ignition than the steel one.
Its tightness of air should be more upgraded.

New small kettle rebuilding


I bought two cheap stuffs
under $3 at discount house.
I'll rebuild these
as nice camping stuffs. :)




I remove the fixed handle of kettle,
and attach a folding handle to it,
that was separated from
old camping cooker.




I test its effectiveness
as a my main camping kettle,
near by my vegetable garden.




Weight : 158g
Capacity : 1 liter
Merit : stacking several bowls in it
Shortcoming : low-grade material




I make pine needle tea.
US canteen cup's capacity is 650cc.
New small kettle is
more suitable to my use.

A walking path in forest


In the evening,
my wife and me take a walk
through the path in nearby forest.




This walking path was
recovered by me in last year,
that got ruined for long time.




My private camp site lies
halfway of the path.
A bird twitters as
"Here is my territory."




Because of the shade area,
plants come late to flower.
Wild rosebushs are in
full bloom.




Its flowers are pretty,
but wild rosebush is suppressed
for preventing the over-spread.
Arrowroot, wild berries too.




In the middle of path,
some fallen trees took to pieces by me.
By pouring rains in last summer
and heavy snowfall in last winter,
there are many fallen trees
in the forest.




The end of path...
There is a spring
that is the source of
small stream.




The sun sets through chestnut trees.
Thanks wonderful planet and sun.




An iris adds this path
to the feeling of fulfillment.




Returning home
under a dogwood.




My new knife is a main tool
that prunes and chops.
