“Heaven is under our feet as well as over our heads.”

frying corn fritters in crisco at camp

Bushcraft cooking is today's task and we are cast iron cooking corn fritters over a campfire. The closest I can find to my skillet is This is a delicious little treat that is fried in Crisco and made with cream of corn, salt, sugar, egg, flour and baking soda. This was our first attempt at frying these up and we'll keep on until we get them just right. We may even try and bake them in the Stanley cook pot.

Working all day with my Husqvarna axe we decided to try a little tracking at night. Dad usually goes ahead and I try and track him to see if I can pick up his spoor. Sometimes at night it can be easier to track men than during the day because your light can illuminate tracks better.
