Greetings folks, well after the well intentioned desire to hit the hills last year ala blackpowder style,fortune took a turn for the worse.A back injury saw me off on compo for 7 months and it hurt me more in a mental sense(wellbeing) than the physical. The upside was to research and watch plenty of LeLOUPS excellent videos and that of others. I managed to get away eventually for a couple of deer hunts when I came good.The hitout in the hills did wonders in many regards as well as securing venison and enjoying the time spent with my son hunting together.
This year i have started in a very positive frame of mind and have already been deer hunting with my son again.He shot his first fallow stag and a big mountain boar in the same morning last weekend.The projects I have been doing for an extended trek (week) have been taking up my little spare time lately.
I placed an order for a fire lock for 'Gabriel' last month and I eagerly anticpate it's delivery along with flints,new ramrod ,mainspring vice (I won't forget you Mopoke!) and maybe a powderhorn.Made a market wallet and some other stuff too and I should have the tarp shelter and blanket roll ready by the time the trek comes around.A fair bit of practice with the flintlock won't hurt neither! Safe trails,regards Rocky ps I shall post photos of projects asap

Good to hear from you again mate, & good to hear you have recovered. Things sound as if they are on the up & up, good to hear. Time spent with your son in the outdoors is never wasted, well done.
Regards, Keith.
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I took the one less traveled by,
and that has made all the difference.

Always good to hear that an outdoorsman is better and back in the outdoors, regardless of the period. Hope your luck continues!

Cannot wait to see some project pics!

Cheers!
