Another new project for the coming year is a plan for “Viking trekking”.  Eulalia and I are talking earnestly about trying a trek (aka hiking/camping) using only Viking (or in her case Celtic) appropriate gear and methods.  We’re shooting for some time in August, since the fishing may be OK, the huckleberries should be ripe, and the mosquitoes should be not too bad. 

There’s going to be some preparation required, both for gear in general and for cooking prep.  I need to bone up on my flint & steel firestarting, since it’s been years since I’ve done it.  Also, I need a small cookpot that will be easily portable and can be used to boil meal/oats/etc. 

I’ll post updates as we make more plans…
