Heading out from Minnesota to Oklahoma in the morning to see Wing's brother and family. Taking our grandson, to college age kids, and Wing's folks. I offered to clean up the work van, but Wing nixed that idea and we ended up renting a 2006 15 passenger van. Should be enough room.
Packing up, and wondering what to bring in case we get a chance to do some bushcrafty things.
Things I'm bringing:
Kettles, flint and steel
Shooter and cartridges - in case they have rattlesnakes in the barn again (always wanted a snakeskin hat band).
Hand axe, knife, and wedges (planning on getting some southern aromatic cedar and osage orange).
Camera, in case we come across something interesting to post.
Wing's brother and sister-in-law live in the garden spot of Oklahoma. Most of the state doesn't apeal to me that much, but they live on 20 oak forested acres of hill side, with a spring, creek, and pond. Very beautiful.
I'd also like to look up a part of the Ojibwe tribe that was removed from up north to Oklahoma in the 19th century.
Be nice to get out of the snow for a bit, and this is about the only time of year I can stand Oklahoma. Temps in summer are way beyond my comfort zone.
