I think as we get older we tend to collect more crap
I used to tent in a pup tent for many years with virtually nothing. Later 'upgraded' to a 12x12 Eureka with a simple setup, the teardrop and now the Airstream. Fish Creek kind of lends itself to bring more 'stuff', including boats and toys. We still like simplicity too, but on other 'non Fish Creek ' trips.
How are the Gransfors axes for slitting wood
? I have a long handled axe as well which usually works well if there is a base to split on (hand rock or flat piece of wood), not so well otherwise. This year I'm going
with the manual foot splitter... we'll see how that goes.
A portable cocktail set should come in handy indeed!
