Back from a 4 month trip to Scandinavia and New England. The colors were mild in New England, when I was there, but they seem to be in their Prime here in New Jersey. I went to see how my camp held up through the months and if any people or pests had visited or vandalized it. I stored my tools, tinder and some cook wear, but nothing that I was emotionally attached to. I was surprised to see nothing was moved or taken. My tarp was only hanging on by one lashing, as I have come to realize that jute twine is not very reliable for too long and definitely not good for all seasons and weather. I replaced the twine with bank line, and retrieved my caches from the forest, then got work on some camp craft ideas. This is what a book of matches looks like after a few months in a waterproof container And waterproof matches were useless… They fell apart upon striking, but when added to a flame they sparkled a little and then gave out. Stashed tools were not too bad looking. After a little bit of use the surface rust was mostly gone. None of this was a big deal to me… The temperature was in the middle 40’s, but the sky was bright! Nighttime was around 32F My camp seen through the colors of the forest. Pocket Shot, ghetto style!
