How do you guard against the bears when you are asleep? I've seen electronic fences and fences made out of old cans being used too.

 

Yeah, those are mostly in Alaska and parts of Canada where people are staying a long time and also it's the salmon run and there are bears everywhere.

 

We wouldn't ever spend more than one night in a single place and the bear population is very low. We don't do anything special to prevent bear attacks but the odds of one happening are very, very long. Bears are pretty scared of people and unless you get between a mother and her cubs or startle one at close range you're very unlikely to even see one, much less be attacked.

There's something about being in the middle of nowhere on your own that makes you feel like Andy Dufresne in Shawshank Redemption after he's crawled through the shit pipe.

This is the one really dangerous part of the trip, the Yenisei rapids. They don't look like much from here, but believe me, this is completely impassable. You have to get out and portage around. Me and a buddy tried to run it back in 2011 and I almost got killed here. Flipped the boat and I went face-first into a rock. I was concussed and couldn't remember my name or what I was doing there for at least 10 minutes.

Whittling spoons has got to one of the biggest waste of times I’m ever heard in my life.

1. You have to buy a knife to do it. Just buy a load of spoons instead.

 

Yup.  You could wear out your last knife making 10,000 spoons.  That'd be ironic.

Can you whittle a mug?

 

Every serious woodsman has one of these on the go somewhere in his workshop. Usually half-finished, with a few bloodstains on it where he cut himself with the crook knife, but "it's going to be beautiful with this burl grain pattern once he gets it polished up."

The spring that slows the dishwasher door down has broken. I’ve googled the repair, ordered the part and will shortly be paying a man to fix what I’ve fucked up.

Currently in the process of plastering a hole in the wall that the dog created. I am then fitting a new toilet seat, replacing a washer on a leaky tap and then going the tip.

I was on a train back from Leicester on Thursday and at the table on my right were 3 lads going to a spoon making weekend camp. They all got their various spoons out and were comparing techniques and talking about what the weekend entailed. They were genuinely excited. I love shit like that as I’m fucking hopeless. I wondered if any of you lot were going. One of them was about 5 foot tall and wearing dungerees and crocs. Think it was Mook.

Not going too well.

 

Toilet seat fitted, wall sort of done.... it looks fucking terrible, tap fucked off until another day and can’t go the tip because I’m now drinking these...
