During this "exercise" Is was reminded of a couple of things.
One; stiring in and balancing a heavy, fully laden dutch oven with lid is not easy. Taking this load off the hook is not easy either, but makes stiring easier. I also remembered that There were some adjustments I had planned for the steel tripod. To lower the DO I have to spread the legs, making them stand out much more, making tripping over them a lot more likely. I will have to make the chain longer, so I can alter the hight of the DO or kettle over the fire. There is a small arm on the top. What it's purpose is, is unclear to me, but if I bend it into a hook I can hook up the chain there. I also need to bend a small notch in the middle of the DO handle, so it is less likely to slip out of balance and tip over.

At first I thought it might be the food, but even afterwards he went and came and lay right next to the fireplace.
|Offcourse this also meant marshmellows (yeerrgghh) and campcoffee (good!)|
