Monsoon season Sucks !!

Well this is fun,,,NOT. My so called road has washed out again.This is the fourth time this year.I now have a ditch about 12 feet wide and 5 or 6 feet deep,don't think I am going anywhere today.Let's see if the town gets the front loader stuck again.What little of a garden I have is looking bad,got the peppers and tomatoes up by the trailer this year so they are OK,the rest are flooded then covered with sand.I realy have to find a better place to live.


Knowing the right knot for the right use can be more art than a science.

I want to share a really cool site with you that I think is great...

There are instructions for all kinds of knots categorized very nicely under:
1.Fishing knots
2.Boating knots
3.Outdoor knots
4.Paddling knots

There are even animations of the knots being tied.Thought this one needed reposting for some of us.

    Bannock Bread :

    Another repost I had made some for a few guests and they wanted recipe.Think it was my first boy scout leader that showed me how to make it.You do not even realy need a pan to cook it in,just some good coals from your camp fire.LOL,but I do use the old cast iron fring pan when I am not camping.

    2 cups of flour (white and/or whole wheat) I use half and half most times.
    I tablespoon of baking powder
    1-2 teaspoons of sugar
    1/4 teaspoon salt
    Enough water to make it into stiff dough

    Toss the everything into a bowl and mix;add water alittle at a time you want the dough to be kind of stiff just so it sticks together.Form the dough into a patty somewhere around 1 to 2 inches thick.You don't want it to thick or the outside will burn before the inside is done.When cooking on the stove I add a little oil or butter in the fring pan.Heat your pan if useing one,drop the patty in and realy cook it just like a pancake.To check it use a tooth pick(fork or knife works too)if you poke it and nothing sticks to it,you are done.Quick fast and very good to eat.
    That is the basic recipe,but you can add about anything to it.I only put in dried fruit and nuts,think the one I made for you guys was pinyon nuts and raisins.I have seen one guy who puts bacon and chesse in his.

    A couple of notes if you are camping and cooking without a pan

    1.You can mix all the dry ingredients in a ziplock bag,just add water.
    2.Good coals is the key here,hard woods work best.
    2.I have cooked it on coals,on a hot rock,in a frying pan,in a dutch oven,my kids even used to wrap it on a stick like you were roasting a hot dog.
