    The Brady's Bush Adventure.

    Here's some of the photos that my woman took, of some of the things we did. I have some photos on my phone, that I need to upload. I'll try to add some descriptions, so you guys can know more of what we did; if you can't tell from the photos.



    Tyr and I are counting the rings on the tree that I cut down, so I could show him the age of the tree and also that the rings grow closer together on the north and northeast side of the tree; that way he can find where north and northeast are, by cutting down a tree!



    Peeling the inner layer of bark off the tree, makes for food; boil it for awhile, roast it/dry it and pound it into flour. It will keep you going. Peeling the trees that I cut, because I was making my first piece of camp furniture.



    Shaving the outer bark off, with my Huqsvarna "Carpenter's" Axe; didn't bring a drawing knife with me (I don't have one, yet). Part of the piece of camp furniture I was making.

    You can see my Esee 4, in it's kydex sheathe and my SOG Fielder on my right side. Wearing my Duluth Firehose pants, great for work and for the bush. Also wearing my Danner Pronghorns. On my keychain, there are several keys and my P-38.



    The log seat, that I made. I made it, so Danielle didn't have to sit on the ground and so that she could sit on it, and breastfeed Lux. It's not perfect, but it works and Danielle was really thankful to have it. It was the first piece of camp furniture that I have ever made!

    More photos coming.

    Some more photos!



    Whose that, sitting in the tent; all by her lonesome? It's a Cabela's 4 person tent, pretty decent tent for $120ish; lots of room for two adults and two kids. In front of the tent is my Maxpedition Gyrfalcon backpack & Maxpedition M-4 Waistpack (GREAT pack! It's my EDC/GHB), behind it; is my Cabela's bacpack. Can't remember the model, but it's HUGE. Bought it about 10 years ago or so. Don't use it much anymore, I take as little as I can. I brought it to carry our sleeping bags and a few odds 'n ends.



    My woman and our kids, the other day was national breastfeeding day and Danielle wanted a photo of her breastfeeding Lux, in the bush. Tyr decided he wanted to get in on the photo, haha.



    Danielle feeding Lux a banana!



    The shelter that I have been building for awhile, takes awhile to build; when you got a toddler trying to help you and a baby crying for food. Danielle mostly takes care of Lux when we're out in the bush and I build the shelter and do it as safely as I can, Especially when Tyr is out and about!

      And some more photos!



      The kids and I, in front of the shelter.



      Me and my little man, taking a break. He was pooped from supervising!



      I decided to have a nap. Much like my kids, I sleep/nap best out in the bush!



      Supper, rice and jerky. Esbit stoves are pretty simple to use, cooking rice without measuring tools; not so easy. I normally cook over a fire, but we decided since this was to be a bug out; we would use the esbit. Learned a lot!

      More photos to come later, got to charge my phone and upload em!

                Thank you.

                Well hopefully you had a good time and learned a lot.

                That's unfortunate.

                  I learned a lot. And taught a lot too.

                  I fell in love with Gloucester, there's wild horses at assateague island and tolls in NY are more expensive than a ferry and raccoons can't carry a cooler that says 'Shewolf' off into the woods.

                  Your daughter is so dang cute. My daughter has the same Ramones shirt that your son is wearing.

                    HH - you da' man. Love the pics of the family enjoying the woods together. +10 for show some bushcrafting. I sure would love to see lots more of your photos!!
                    Give a man a match, & he'll be warm for 20 seconds. But toss that man a white phosphorus grenade and he'll be warm for the rest of his life.

                        Thanks Sarge. I always take the family out when I go, I like to be able to make memories with them; doing the things that I'm interested in and teaching them.

                        I'll keep uploading more, as often as we go on adventures or as often as I remember to.

                        PS-It's impossible to bug out with kids under 3. They cry, fight, yell, bite, scream, etc. I'm surprised no one came looking for us, maybe they didn't hear us. I don't know.

                          We just got in, there was a small fire in the apartment building somewhere and someone pulled a fire alarm too, as a joke.

                          I grabbed my bag and my knife, as well as my son and his blanket (he was sleeping). My woman grabbed our daughter and her blanket. We took the stairs right next to us, down to the 2nd floor and out the front of the building. As we were going down the stairs, a female firefighter bumped into us; as she was going up to the 5th floor (we're on the 4th).

                          There was 4 people out there, plus the 4 in the Brady clan. The rest of the building's occupants stayed inside or were waiting out on their balconies.

                          I don't get that, we don't take any chances; we don't want to burn.

                          I've burned my entire face, twice (1st-chemical burn when I was 7) and the 2nd time, was a few years ago; with 350+c oil. The oil wasn't so bad. I swore a couple times, went to the sink and stuck my face under the tap. I bicycled home and then to the hospital. My employer didn't even think of giving me a ride to the hospital.

                          I'm getting a list together, of stuff to put together for the kids and us; in case of fire. I've been meaning to do it for awhile, but keep getting side tracked. Winter is coming and that's the time, where we'll get caught. I want it done soon.

                          Anyone have suggestions?

                            children are acutely aware of what is going on around them...........

                            they are more in tune than adults give them credit for......

                            case in point, had to do the heimlich maneuver last year on a 4 y/o...

                            all the children, even the "special ones' went quite and didn't make a peep....

                            they all know when you go "hard core serious".........

                            there is a lott to learn from youngins'......... if ya pay attention........
