And we're back

That was a pretty good trip despite the traffic.

Yesterday I put the K&M Industries Matchcase through it's paces including a little over an hour in the lake. It's every bit as watertight as advertised and an untreated strike-anywhere match ignited on the second strike. Mine, an aluminum model, even floated just under the surface.

The Sperati worked well at making fuzz sticks and throwing sparks from a metal match.

The golok, of course, took most of the abuse and still performed flawlessly. I really do like this blade.

I finally boiled up some water in my mucket once the fire got going and now it's a nice dirty black all around the bottom.

A good trip. I'm tired. The kids are tired. We're glad we went and we're glad to be back.

Thanks for reading,
