New Reading Material

I picked up two "new to me" magazines this weekend on the way home from Woodhenge, The Backwoodsman and Permaculture Magazine. The Backwoodsman had two great articles on reusing old drums, one for a wood fueled cookstove and the other for a small kayak type boat with outriggers. Permculture also had a article on reusing old drums, a bit whimsical claims the author, but intriguing none the less. Permaculture also had a good article on building compost bins out of old pallets, similar to the Joe Jenkins design.

Hiking the deep woods

Sunday afternoon a group from our church went for a nice hike near Colton NY. The woods were ablaze in fall colors, and the waterfalls and boiling rapids provided a symphony of sounds to complement the gorgeous views. Part way through the hike, Steve twisted his ankle, and had to soak it in the river for a while till he could limp back to the trail head.
