Making butter, flavored butter !
I can already make plain butter (and it's quite easy) but next time, I may try adding some cocoa powder or honey in it...

Knapping, fly fishing, being a lottery winner.  I knew how to canoe almost before I could walk but I started kayaking just a few years ago.  You'll love it, Morphy. 


What kind of kayak would you suggest RM? Ideally I’ve been looking at the kind you pedal with your feet because I would be able to fish while I’m moving. I think those are much more expensive than the more traditional kind though. Not sure if the trade off is worth it.


     There are two basic types of kayak.  One is the kind that you sit down low inside of.  This is the type most people are familiar with I believe.  IMO these are the driest and easiest to use.  Also the most stable.  The other kind might be called an Ocean Kayak.  They're the type you sit on top of.  My two man fishing kayak is this type.  I like it but I think the former type is easier to use and more comfortable.  As far as Paddleboat type kayak, I can't comment intelligently because I've never used one.  I probably wouldn't buy one because it limits the kind of water you can kayak in.  Like you would never take it in rapids.  I'm not sure how it would behave in heavy weeds either.  If you wanted one just for fishing a calm, mostly weed free lake I guess it would be OK. Here's a couple of not so great screen captures of my big kayak.

Ahh that looks so nice! See I haven’t even considered the two person aspect yet. I think I would like the kind you sit in better. Just seems like it would be more stable. And maybe even hold more. My ideal is to bring out my radio, my cooler a couple rods and never be seen again. Well, until Monday morning.

I need to finish my matchlock.  I made a stock, got a barrel and had a lock roughed in.  Then I sort of sat it aside and haven't messed with it for years.  I got it out yesterday and couldn't find the lock parts.  Guess I'll have to make some more.

Covid has ruined my chances at a “hobby” I’ve been working on for a while, at least until next season.
Plan on catching a Australian Salmon from the shore with a bow. Finally got the equipment but it was not ment to be this year.

I've been itching to get working on the springbow idea I have. I have 9 days (NINE!) off coming up and I'm hoping to get the parts I need then.

Since grocery store trips are more complicated, we’ve been doing a little more “urban homesteading” out of necessity. Two of the best experiments have been homemade tortillas (with real lard... absolutely the best tasting tortillas), and homemade yogurt. The yogurt process will also work for cream cheese!  These are two foods we may never buy in a package ever again because the fresh homemade versions are far superior.

   Making yogurt is surprisingly easy.  We used to do it at home when we were kids.

I've had that experience myself.  One thing I always make myself is ranch dressing.  I found it strange that if I ordered a pizza and got a little cup of ranch dressing on the side, it was always way better than anything bottled in the stored.  One day I looked up a recipe and found it was just mayonnaise, sour cream, butter milk and spices.  Granted, all these ingredients are just store bought.  But you can add herbs and spices as you want and it's so much better than any bottled ranch dressing.
