It’s Saturday night on the first full day of summer. What great timing as SLD shares his “Cowboy Camping” ensemble for us.
Over at Everyday Carry, SLD writes this:
Heading out on a horseback campout with some friends. Will include several nights camping out in rather primitive camps. Not shown in the picture would be a Gransfors Bruk small forest ax which I find to be invaluable in any kind of camping environment for shelter and fire.
The Inova is a red led model which throws plenty of useable light but helps preserve night vision and which I find, spooks the wildlife, including horses, less. The large knife is a favorite based loosely upon a knife shown in George Washington Sears, AKA Nessmuk, book, Woodcraft which was published in 1884 and has been in print ever since, it is a must read for any would be outdoorsman.
Not sure why he has those speed strips giving he’s got a single-action wheelgun, but I suppose it keeps the cartridges in line, so to speak.
His own hand-made knife rates a very nice touch. Something we don’t see a lot here. Very nice!
So, for out on horseback and camping, he’s got his wheel gun, cowboy-style holster, spare ammo, flashlight, compass, blades and firestarting gear. And no phone, no charger, no battery, no headphones, and all the rest of those electronic doo-dads. Just like camping’s supposed to be.
