86 uses for an axe

I’m part of the scouts, dib dib, dob dob and all that!

 

I often go camping and one of the regular camp-sites I go to is Hill-Holt Woods near Norton Disney.I take my hammock up with me and slept in that for the weekend. The woods is a brillant place to go roaming around in, looking for various creatures and practising survival techniques. Always handy in an zombie invasion!

Last time I went up to the wood’s I took my beloved axe with me, it has an hickory handle and is, well, a beast. Anyway, I tried to do several challenges the other scouts set me, eating, cooking and drinking all with an axe.
