May I inquire what were some of your past big projects? I am fairly new to the thread and if you've mentioned them previously forgive me.

Well if it's a cast iron one wouldn't it be a bit heavy to lug?

Of course if it is cast iron it could also double as a weapon should any unwanted elements appear at your campsite!

This reproduction handforged iron skillet has a 6" diameter bottom and an 8" handle that folds into the pan for easy storage. Weighs about 1.5 lbs. This pan is hammered into shape rather than spun like many of the cheaper and less accurate imported versions. The handle is socketed for adding a longer wood handle. Comes preseasoned. Great for the trail or camp.

fyi..i decided I am going to buy the skillet. It will replace the 6" I carry right now. It's about half the weight, which may not seem like a big difference, but when you have a heavy pack, every ounce counts!!@@

Spring is a great time for wild camping, when bright, sunny days of exploration and new adventures beckon! But beware! The nights and early mornings can still be quite fresh! Here's a few tips for staying snugly warm..

Make a hot water bottle using a Sigg water bottle and one of your socks.

Make your sleeping bag hood and or baffles work for you. A lot of heat is lost from your head and shoulders when you sleep, so make sure you do up the hood and baffles well, to prevent further heat loss.

Use your empty backpack as extra insulation from the ground under your lower or upper body. This can also help if the ground is not perfectly flat to level out your sleeping area. If you are still cold, consider putting your feet into your backpack to act like an extra bivvy bag.

Default Paul Kirtley's Blog.....Getting Up With The Birds.......

Spring is a time of great change, of significant transformation in the landscape. The pace starts off slow, with subtle signs here and there, available to the attentive nature watcher.

The return of migratory species from overwintering in warmer climes, combined with the mating season for birds kicking off in full, gives rise to a spectacular increase in birdsong in the woods and hedgerows in spring. At first it can seem like a cacophony, a chaotic mass of chirping. After listening for a little while, however, your brain begins to tune into particular songs, repeated refrains and identifiable sounds. If you spend a springtime weekend in the woods, you can not only take the opportunity to have an early night, to have a good sleep under your tarp, only to be awoken by the dawn light and the chorus of birdsong which accompanies it.
