12:00 noon: Camping Setup
8:00 pm: Evening Fire

SATURDAY, November 8, 2014


10:00 am: Processing acorn meal into a flat bread flour, with the use of hand stone grinding
11:00 am: Setting in some new Cedar poles, and lashing the band rails, with processed Pawpaw bark, for Primitive Shelter maintenance and repair. The goal is to have the wigwam shelter frame, sturdy and ready to apply Poplar bark in the spring.
12:00 noon: Lunch
1:00 pm: Burning the Adobe Oven, bringing it up to cooking temperature.
2:00 pm: Jeff Shevenock will help Processing the available foods, for Adobe Cooking. Feel free to bring something. Breads, meats, or vegetables will all cook, at different stages, during the firing process.
3:00 pm: The Iceman carried a little known, "catch all" Net, of 2 x 2 squares. Guy Neal will lead an experimental re-production replica of the 4'x4' Net, and general net making. Although the initial investment is large, nets are in my opinion, by far the most efficient of hunting tools.
4:00 pm: Community Dinner, Served cafeteria style.
5:00 pm: Travis Wanner, will be demonstrating how to build a Rocket Stove. These stoves are very efficient and easy to use.
6:00 pm: Trading Blanket (Bring stuff, you will want something to trade)
