I arrived at my local woods around 6.30pm and set up my camp. It took about an hour to set up my abode for the night,then I collected my fire wood and got my fire going.by this time it was starting to get dark so I quickly took some photos of some wild mushrooms I had spotted earlier and then settled in for the night. I started my fire using flint and steel,the wood was pretty damp as it has been raining for the last few days so I split some smaller pieces of wood to get to the dry inside and used plenty of birch bark and fat wood to get it to take. I start my fire as a little tee pee and then build it up until Ive got some good coals burning,then I spread the coals out so I can have a long fire. A long fire works really well with the lean-to tarp set up as the heat is spread along the length of the lean-to plus you don't have to chop as much wood,I tend to use lengths that are around six foot and just move then along as they burn. I also use a large log behind the fire as a heat reflector I didn't take as many photos as Id have liked to but this is the norm for me as I get a little carried away with setting up and then chilling out I don't like the end where my head will be open to the eliments so I always construct a barrier from whatever is available. If it was winter Id have bloked the other end off to My favourite shelter set up. MOD tarp used as a lean-to and bivvy bag with trek mate self inflating mat and a big minus 7 sleeping bag inside. From inside my shelter Fire wood. 2AM. I think this mushroom is a shaggy parasol which is edible but will get a positive ID before I go and pick them to eat. Plenty of them. Don't know about this one. I forgot to mention that I only used my Leuku knife which did all that was needed,I also took my little neck knife.. Id already eaten dinner so I had a pot noodle bad boy for supper and a few beers,I pre cooked some sausages,chopped them up and put them in a sealed bag with beans,butter and cheese for breakfast and cooked them on my Swiss ranger stove. I got a visit from an Owl who perched on the tree my tarp was tied to,he was making a lot of noise but I love listening to Owl calls. I also heard a Fox scream because thats what it sounds like,In fact if you didn't know what it was it would sound quit chilling,there's also a lake nearby to so I got a few geese fly over.
