    I can actually answer that question,too. Those are quotes from posts on this forum. You can probably find the original locus with a search. The one about not being bulletproof is a couple years old,...

    I didn't think you could! You learn something new every day! I guess the small size would make a Dutch oven less than optimal for camp baking,though, as others have said.

    You don't make bread in a Dutch oven. You make biscuits in them. I'm pretty sure you would burn the bottom of the loaf before the middle baked.

    Although I'm not a Facebook user myself, I have noticed that it's become the replacement for unit websites, also. Not as approachable as a website for someone who's not a "friend," though.

    I bet there's a lot more to this story than meets the eye. Bread is tricky stuff to make well. Let the whole rising part aside, a suitable oven would be one that would surround the baking dough with...

    I have always enjoyed the AC, even though I don't post much. I tend to want to engage in cyber-campfire conversation rather than scholarly research, and don't keep my sources within arms reach.

    40 years of reenacting has made me a pretty competent hobo. But it took a long time. When I'd been at it 3 years I couldn't start a fire. Or cook except to burn the outside of a piece of fatback,...

    That's not a very hard repair, and can be done with some waxed thread and a needle. It's also in a spot that's not readily visible, so if it's a little messy it won't be terrible. I've made a couple...

    Be prepared to deal with the less than authentic and safe crowd of you do. My experience has been that even a modest registration begins separating the sheep from the goats.
