^^ Worth saying twice.
Nice, nice, nice, nice, nice.
A small camp axe and an Imperial Stout. Yeah baby!
For the love of all that is good, will you please make it stop?
You know that it's a topsy-turvy and fudged up year when a stainless steel monolith starts playing games with your eyes, in the middle of nowhere in bum-phart UT desert! But I gotta hand it to them pranksters, that was quite funny!
Rumor has it, that it was actually a D3V monolith...
How’s the big river budget knives coming along?
Mat that red rock country in Utah is some of the most spectacular country you will ever see.
Thinking of an old friend every day.
Deer weren’t biting so just kicked my feet up.
also found one of the coolest spiders “Phidippus regius” per google
obligatory CPK photo
That's a mean looking spider!
She was wild. That is a pacific salt 2 for size reference. Would cover a quarter if alive
Those choke tools are fantastic. I want one.
These fake ceramic logs are pretty sweet (Just converted to gas, wood fires aren't allowed most of the year unless it's your only source of heat).
Nice looking fireplace!!! Very cool.
I love fireplaces, although I'm partial to wood. Even when I lived alone in a small townhouse 30 years ago, I had a custom fireplace that was way too big for the place . . . the only fireplace and only chimney in the whole townhouse development, as they were not included in the original build. Still can't believe the homeowner's association even allowed it, but they did. Probably helped that it was an end unit and the fireplace was on an exterior wall that was not shared with a neighbor who might have complained. Anyway, there was a chamber built around the flue to capture exiting heat, with dual electrical fans on either side to blow that heat into the family room. You could get enough heat to heat the entire family room with that. Most practical fireplace I ever owned.
I always wanted a house with multiple fireplaces on different levels. Someday!
I’ll add it to places to take the kids if travel is possible again.
Woke up to 5+" of snow this morning and it's still coming down.
I know I'm posting this to a bunch of CPK sycophants, but I need to sing some serious praises for the DEK1. I scored one from the second sale so I have had some time to carry, use, and field it a bit. I have used it in fire making, yard work, and every day carry. If no one tells @Lorien, I'll even confess to some light-ish batoning. I absolutely love this knife! The handle is absolutely peerless. I gently tested the D3V's stain resistance and was pleasantly surprised to see that the near-stainless claim isn't an exaggeration (still corroded, but significantly less than I anticipated). This thing is truly spectacular! I don't believe in the end-all/be-all knife, but if I did this would certainly be in the runnings for the perfect kit/defensive knife category. Also thrilling is that I don't have to conceal it now that I'm carrying it now that I moved to a place where I can LEGALLY carry a fixed blade. If anyone is on the fence about getting one, do it. It is very much lives up to the hype.
(Edited to correct to "DEK1"-because apparently I don't pay enough attention to what I'm typing)
I'm not a sycophant, I just love the designs of CPK knives and the way they are made and look. I also like tough steel like 3V for an EDC knife. I can't wait to receive my DEK1 that I preordered.
