[quote:Anonymous Coward 1110734:MV8xNTg3OTA4XzM0NTUyOTAxX0Q3RDE4RjJD] Field sharpening If you're way out in some meadow or forest and cutting, then a feller (a little pun) should sure bring along a sharpening stone. I like the Spyderco Triangle method (previous postings) just don't oversharpen the axe or whatever tool you have, because you'll simply knock the edge off faster. Does that make sense? The thinner the edge, the faster it loses it's edge. Yes, despite all the fun of making a razor's edge, it's not a razor! You probably have seen the famous sharpening guy who shaves his beard with an axe, but it's just a demonstration. We're felling trees not beards! If you've ever used a scythe, you know that the grass dulls the blade quickle, but it creates very large swathes as it cuts. This means it's a great tool for harvesting hay (has the seed still on it versus straw: the seeds are past nutrional value or falling off or missing). This means you must bring whatever sharpening tool with you. Since these stones can break easily, obviously having some common sense and a carrying kit is recommended. It's terrible to have a dull tool. It dulls quickly. We're used to instantaneous use, so that means frequent sharpening under that usage. You bugout folks brought your sharpening kit with you...right? [/quote]
There are many free homeschooling sites with pdf files. It would be great to have them just in case there are issues.
Get medications that your kids need. See if your doctor will prescribe 3 months supplies for them.
Get some presents tomorrow for Christmas. Little gifts that you could give out not only then, but throughout the year as incentives. They'll really appreciate them.
Children can thrive in the woods as long as they have calm parents. They cannot keep up with your pace up and down tails. You've got to plan adequately if you do have to walk some.
Kids are used to incorrectly using a backpack since kids at school wear them in the wrong fashion, which adds too much stress to their lower back. You'll have to reteach them how to buckle it properly and position it higher than they used to wearing it.
Try to make gathering wood into a game. Teach them as much about nature as possible. Being quiet is as important as talking.
Kids love open fires. Tell stories. It can simply be times when they did wonderful things when they were younger. They love hearing how much you love and adore them. Even teens.
Hug and kiss them often. Be generous with your affection. Lavish it on them
