Whose Scat Is That?

Thanks to the eight club members who joined me Ryan Johnson to play these and other fun games at Silver Lake.  We got to experiment with four or five fire-starting techniques (and develop a greater appreciation for matches), make our own tinder balls and learn some common edible plants.  There’s much more, but perhaps you’d just like to sign up to fill the two remaining spots next Sunday – one in the morning session and one in the afternoon.  We really had a great time and learned in the process!  Thanks, Ryan.  You put together a thoughtful entertaining and educational program for us!
Thanks to all who signed up, showed up and shared; it was a great time! 

That was a great way to spend a morning, and to develop a real appreciation for those that have the ability to start a friction fire! Ryan got an ember from his hands and a drill set up, the rest of us struggled to even get a wisp using a bow drill setup. Ferro rod and steel was a different story though, after learning to make a proper tinder ball. The woods walk was up all of our alleys but Ryan knows a lot more about what we see. Great day!

Thanks Laura for organizing this, it was awesome! Well, except maybe for all of the distractions from the pesky eagles and Kingfisher 😀- Jim
