Re: Dwarven sketch, based on tolkiens own ones.

I'm also glad to see an interpretation based on the source material that challenges the now de rigueur portrayal established by the LOTR films.

Re: 2019 S.W.O.R.D. Game

Well I tagged the stand but I got tired of wasting bottles, so... here.

So it's the bottom bottle first and then the top. I used the cap-squish method to stack them. Wow works good! Good luck!

Nice! Super smooth.

Re: 2019 S.W.O.R.D. Game

Seems like this game has lost its momentum! Got any ideas to re-invigorate it, or has its time passed?

Re: Water Treatment on the Trail

A handful of activated or regular finely ground charcoal wrapped in clean cotton (new sport sock) will make a decent charcoal filter. If you're in the field use can use the charcoal from your fire. No gray ash just the blackened pieces of wood ground up with a rock will do pretty well in a pinch. S...

Re: Water Treatment on the Trail

Berkeys are nice, but their smallest model is still 4x14" and weighs three pounds empty. Something like that would be fine for a base camp, but it really falls outside the "Ranger ethos" on the trail, IMO. There are plenty of compact water purifiers that handle heavy metals, using act...

Re: 2019 S.W.O.R.D. Game

Well, they got cut, just not all the way through. What do you think Odigan? Wish I had your good form :mrgreen: It's tricky! Definitely helps to use a downward diagonal strike, forcing the bottle against the stand at least momentarily to start the cut since they've so little mass to resist the impa...

Two, I just did it twice so figured why not include it.

Re: 3rd Age Dunedain Ranger - Complete Functional Kit Breakdown

I'm not sure how long that I've been with the forum officially, maybe 6 or 7 years? You joined June 22, 2013 @ 5:31 pm. Don't you remember? :) Greg and I joined about a month apart, being the 26th and 25th members, respectively. Even having a head start, I can't compare in terms of kit and complete...

Re: 2019 S.W.O.R.D. Game

My apologies for the delay, it's been rain, rain, rain here. The original intent with this challenge was to cut empty bottles. As you may note, however, there's a fair amount of wind where I live. So I put just enough water in them to keep them from blowing away (most of the time). Two cuts to make ...

They are! I actually picked that one up off the road since I didn't have any. Recycling!

Re: 2019 S.W.O.R.D. Game

The weather finally cleared but I had a dearth of bottles, so I used two 8" tall pieces of 2x in place of them, on either side of the brick.
In retrospect I should have gone all out and used bricks for everything.

Oh, I thought the challenge was to slice through the brick!

Well, rain here for a while anyway, will get to it when we catch a break.
