They didn’t need me at work Monday, so I did the responsible thing and stayed home and messed with my dugout canoe project. I am just at the beginning stages of burning out the cottonwood log.

Using birch bark, pine pitch, dried grass and a ferro rod, I got a fire started. Rather than waste the heat, I cooked lunch on top of the dugout – a ham, cheese and sauerkraut sammy baked in a pie iron.

I cooked a roast in the Dutch oven the other night and the pot was a crusty mess, so I took the opportunity to clean it out and re-season the iron on the fire. I got it finished and put away just before the rainstorm moved in.
