UP FOR A CHALLENGE? I'm putting together an obsidian knife to go to the one who puts together the best fire and shelter setup. This will be a combination of practical and primitive. What is allowed for this challenge is a modern knife, ferro rod and a small space blanket or poncho. If you can go all primitive, bowdrill or hand spindle and all natural construction, even better. Only tinder from the area can be used and your shelter must incorporate natural materials. If you are experienced, let's see what you've got. If you're inexperienced we'll help you sort it out. We'll have a fire at the end and talk about what we learned. Let's meet at McDonalds in Sisters, drive about 2 miles west to cold spring cutoff. I have a shelter already built about a mile down the cutoff. Walk in is about 150 yards. Conditions in the area currently are, no snow, wet and cold. We'll go from 10:00 am to no later then dusk. Fee is $10.00, my knives sell for close to $100.
