PHOTOS, TIPS AND TRICKS:

Y-branches makes a ideal tripod for the A-frame tarp setup.

Leaf bed.

Turning a branch into rope.

The "rope" was used for a tripod to a fire reflector.

Working on apple compote - just apples and a bit of water... let it boil for 15 minnutes or something similar and don.

Bread, butter and compote.

Working on making tinder from the tinder fungas - 50/50 ashes and water.

Boiling the hole fungas makes it easy to cut of the top layer of tinder.

Chaga tea/coffee. The piece of chaga can be dried and reused a few times.

Dishwaching in the sea.

The chaga drink is ready.

After a few hours of boiling is the tinder hammered flat.

it takes a few hours next to the fire before they are ready for fire lightning with flint and steel.

Night time.

Day two. Spend a few hours in the forest looking for mochrooms for breakfast... but no look any of the usual places.

In the mean time has the wind picked up... My camp is on the right site of the washed up seaweed, but I know I am cutting it close.

Flint, homemade steel and tinder.

Making fire like the vikings and a lot of other people in more recent times.

Cutting vegetables for breakfast. Inside the shelter is the wind protection great... so did move the fire closer and it's working all right... but was it not the final day of the trip, would I move the camp into the forrest.

Tomato, beans, onions and later on did I add cream.

Great meal.

On my way back home... It's just about 5 kilometers.
