    man, signed up for bike rides out of town tomorrow and next week but sure enough, now they are showing rain for tomorrow's ride. its a two hour drive to get to the event and 45 bucks was the cost to sign up. i hate how the rain just comes out of nowhere this time of year. probably the same thing will happen for next weekend's ride.

    fire starter reciepe ! Find a hemlock tree thit has had wounds on it and is secreting sap to heal those wounds. You can spot what you need from a distance cause it well show white on the tree . Ok, you all happy now, got a mission. get a quart container, gloves cause it's sticky. A putty knife and get a quart of that pine pitch { sap} . You heat that up in a hub cap or anything like that. Keep low flame the stuff is very flameable, It well turn into a liquid. Once liquified, got to yur fire pit and get cold coals from there and mix it in with the sap, Making gravy baby. Once mixed, remove from heat. Have large metal spoon to ladel this witches brew into small paper cups. Let harden over night . The things are great, I canlight one and it well burn all the way down a snow bank, Lasts about 20 minutes. It puts the fire starters from the store to shame. But dont use them in your woodstove.

    Any pine tree, look for the sap. The poisonus kind I believe is the ones in the holy land. dont know there strain. But the ones here in north america you can slap it on a wound of your body , its an anti bacterial thing. To the best of my understanding.

    In the days of the Mayflower, they coated the hull of the ship with sap to waterproof it.

    Interesting about the pine stuff. I guess if I didn't grow up in the city, I might know about that kind of stuff. Sometimes I wonder about it but I hardly even know what kinds of trees I have in my yard.

    This is the poisonous hemlock plant. The root looks like a white carrot.

    This is the tree. Not poisonous but not eatable. Soft short needles and tiny nickel size pinecones.
