    We had shooters somewhere up on our Eastern boundary last night, so I went up there today to see if they had been on our side of the fence & see if there were any dead or wounded animals. I didn't find any sign, no spent shell cases, but there is a lot of ares to cover up there. Anyway I had the camera with me so I took some pictures of the remnants of what is probably Ryvardenia Creatacea low down in a tree, & some Echidna diggings.

    Old & weather worn but still good for tinder use.

    Or don't cut the wood. We usually just burn long pieces in half, then half again etc ... no need to cut at all; unless you're trying to extract it, in which case a saw is best IMO
    In all the years I have lived in the bush, I have never had to cut firewood for a camp fire.

    With you Keith. Only cut it if I want to but mainly burn it either in half or end feed. I have also broken branches between the fork of a tree.
    Ask Chris about my abortive and not widely discussed attempt to build a bush stool out of inland WA bush timber.
    OMG, that was BLOODY HARD wood. It was really, really hard.
    Cheers

    Gave two knives a polish (sharpen) to restore their edges a bit using a old shearing shed flat stone.

    More road repairs using the new tractor bucket to cart aggregate. Hot already & only just into spring, that means at least 6 months of summer instead of just three!!! This does not bode well for the future!!!

    Keith.
    I would not argue with your thoughts on the forthcoming summer season. Now would be the time to fish out the fire fighting pump, oil change and a test run so as to make sure all is well and ready.

    Think things will start to go pear shaped before to long.
