    The AX will show up, might be next outing tho.

    Just a mistaken identity I think.

    My take on this is to follow the money, er......wood in this case.

    :wink::wink:Check the milk crate that the wood came in.:wink::wink:

    People were helping others to bring food and supplies to the KP site.

    I helped Zub with carrying his stuff.

    :DI bet someone thought the ax belonged to the chap who brought the wood.:D

    If we know that for sure..no problem, it will find it's way home. Otherwise there is a real possibility it is laying wherever you last saw it. I forgot about loaning it out until we got home and unloaded the bike. There was the sheath.....Phuuuuuuck.

    Well you'll be there 45 minutes before I would so I'll bow out I guess.

    Don't know the guy I saw bring the fire wood in but he was about my age with a full gray beard, baseball cap and glasses.
    Very hard to make out the face.:huh

    Sorry MB. Did what I could.

    Got home about 20 minutes ago. Long dirty busy day.

    Thanks for offering to ride up there and look for my Axe.

    Thanks for running up there. Hopefully it will turn up. If not, that was an expensive camp fire. Suppose I should have went over and enjoyed it.

    I think they suck!
    I have a Gerber machete with the saw teefs on the back edge.
    Blade is sharpened all wrong,,and saw teefs are powder coated over with the rest of the useless blade.
    Took mine to Carson's Saw shop and had them do the blade and the teeth,,less than ten bucks,,both perfectly sharp and ready!
    Stock Gerber stuff is for the Walmart weekend camper,,go back to any walmart and get another one,,the little saw inside the handle is a great one for de-limbing a deer for transport!
    the hat-sjit,,not impressive,,long handle or short,,tho I have had use of them over the years.
    Mystery bearded man with the hatch back, tailgate up, dog crate with fire wood,:huh,,


    ,or the spirits of the native clans, rounded up and herded together under the "protection" of the government?
    (that is actually QUITE A HEAVY PLACE/LOCATION if you think about the tribal's side of it.)
    (gonna get back ,,gonna steal the whiteman's plastic axe)
    You do know they were watching our every move,,don't you?!:deal

    I have an Estwing camp axe. It seems like good stuff but doesn't feel right when using it. Maybe a balance issue, never pinned down why.

    You would have a hell of a time driving tent stakes in with that chainsaw.

    That "kids Axe" was not the best axe around by far, but it did the job just fine. It didn't weigh 4lbs either. It had way more travel miles than use miles on it. Spent the majority of the time forgotten about in the bottom of my Pannier.

    If I thought that ax was a joke, I would have not traveled 50 miles yesterday to see if it was still there.....:wink::wink::wink:

    It was a fine ax indeed. When I swung that thing with all my might at that lil' stick in the parking lot it took an enormous divot out of the pavement when I missed. A lesser ax would have chipped and dulled much worse than your lil' ax did! :huh

    ...I'll buy you a new one.....
