Loving your posts. Your cooking looks awesome and I adore that photo of Bella on the mass with your groceries! Seeing you and 9 collaborating on the tipi improvements after reaching out to you about it really made my day. Thanks for being awesome! So happy to have you here in the bootcamp. Week 2 baby! Here he comes

Boot Update

Today was all gathering poles and planting peas.

In the morning all of the boots went up the mountain and cut down dead/fire killed small diameter pines. We'll use these for building fence and cutting out the cluttered growth will help other plant life regrow.

After lunch half of the boots went out and planted peas in the growing berms, they'll provide some food and fix nitrogen in the soil for our later crops. I'm excited to see them sprout and eat some.

Yesterday I got some bow whittling in. I think I have a good plan to work around the knots in the cedar. I hope to keep the beauty of the wood while not weakening the wood or comprising speed. I've marked out the center and middle and cut out the arrow shelf. I put the shelf on the side which would usually make it a left hand bow but I can shoot right handed by drawing the string with my thumb instead of my fingers. It is a technique I have wanted to try out and now I've got a reason.

It will be a beautiful bow if I'm up to the task.

Hopefully progress or at least I made some shavings for kindling. I have a lot to take off

I'm using all of these, loving the saw blade file for grinding down knots without tearing out wood

I think this will work... I'm going to have to be careful bending at first. That crevice is really deep.

That is a really amazing video, Ben! A couple of us sat and watched it. Fascinating to watch their process. When I was staying in the tipi, I contemplated a similar tent within a tent idea - kind of like a canopy bed - but didn't get that far in my tipi machinations. Maybe Kyle will come up with some rad ways to comfortably live in there!

Thanks for the praise Ben. I'm still an amateur but I'm trying. And thanks for the cool video, I really like the fur cover, a little envious of it.
