About 2 miles from home at Thornton in Craven there's a disused flooded quarry at SD91088-48805 I decided that even though we have a flint and steel lit fire everyday at home
(house hot water and central heating from stove in front room)
I'd do one out in the woods and give my stove collection a rest.
So unrolling a piece of rubber backed carpet to kneel on and tinder tin at the ready with a roll of birch bark some hemp fiber and fluffed sizal string made into a nest and some fat pine spills cut
fire was soon going and one and a half billies of packed snow gave enough water to boil the roasting bag of beans and sliced smoked cabanos, eaten out of roasting bag, water used for a brew and there's no washing up. I quite often take some of the night befores curry or chillie out this way
the King begins to suspect something
"Who but a fool would be King for a day ?"
There's already another King in waiting
just thought I'd share cheers all Danny
