Paranoia and the virtue of hospitality?

Due to a recent online discussion I joined couchsurfing.org which is basically a world-wide network of people who offer and ask for crash space as they travel to save money.  There are even special interest subgroups within couchsurfing.org to better screen your potential guests and host.What has surprised me is how adversely people, especially females, have reacted to this idea.  As if every potential person, especially male, is a serial axemurdering cannibal rapist.  They have even…See More

Hello Karl,

Seems as minimum we have a liking for history, weapons and fighting in common.  I enjoyed your comments in the Rough and Tumble thread.  I must confess I've done very little in the way of social networking, so I'm not sure what "friend" entails in that regard, even though I have "friended (?) another person prior to you.  Please enlighten me.  Thanks.

No worries. Easy to miss comments.

 

I THINK I heard about the mummy either on National Geographic Channel, or read about in in the magazine itself. Was a few years ago, now. But the tidbit about that pine resin stuck with me.

Karl, you seem to be up on your paleo-archeology. I'm having a brain fart. Didn't somebody find a mummy in Peru or Chile with resin from the south pacific used in the embalming process?

It works great for keeping lid out of dirt or from burning table top. It folds and stores nicely in oven if you make it the right size. Lodge or Camp CHef make out of heavy rod so you could actually support cast iron without feet over coals or as a lid holder.
Do you do Renesaincce fairs? I saw one in MN one time.

Boyhood Restored

I believe that boys should use their time primarily to prepare for manhood. This group is for young men, dads, and other men who have opinions they'd like to share on how boys should grow up or be raised.
