PHYREKEEPER OPENING MEME

BIMONTHLY HIGHLIGHTS PART 2 MEME

WELCOME TO THE PART TWO PUBLICATION OF PHYREKEEPER #0007 OCTOBER 2013. AGAIN, I’M A DAY LATE AND A DOLLAR SHORT. BUT, I HAVE A REALLY GOOD EXCUSE… AND, HERE IT IS…

PK 0007 PART 2 110213 FRI 004-9

IF YOU DON’T KNOW WHO OR WHAT THIS CHARACTER IS, IT’S “STEVE” FROM THE VIDEO GAME “MINECRAFT.”

minecraft

IF YOU STILL AREN’T SURE, YOUR KIDS ARE IF YOU HAVE SOME THAT ARE OLD ENOUGH. ANYWAY, MY SON, JAKE, ASKED IF HE COULD BE “STEVE” FOR HALLOWEEN. NOW, HE ASKED THIS FOUR DAYS FROM MY DEADLINE TO PUBLISH THIS PART TWO OF PHYREKEEPER ON THE THIRTIETH. SO, DO I DO “FATHER OF THE CENTURY” AND MAKE HIS COSTUME OVER THE NEXT SERIES OF DAYS, OR DO I SAY USE AN OLD COSTUME OF SOMETHING ELSE. I DECIDED THAT IT WOULD BE IN MY BEST INTEREST TO DO THE COSTUME NOT JUST FOR THE MEMORIES AND APPRECIATION BUT THAT HE MIGHT PUT ME IN AN “OLD FOLKS HOME” SOMEDAY WHEN I GET OLDER. SO, THERE YOU GO.

BELOW ARE NOT POSED PHOTOS. MY KIDS TRY TO DO REAL LIFE “MINECRAFTING” IN THE BACKYARD ALL THE TIME AND I HAVE TO CONSTANTLY FILL IN THE HOLES THEY LEAVE….

PK 0007 PART 2 110213 FRI 005-9

PK 0007 PART 2 110213 FRI 006-9

SO, IN TRYING TO KEEP WITH THIS “MINECRAFT” THEME – AS YOU MAY KNOW, I MAINLY FOCUS ON PHRYCTION PHYREKEEPING – WHICH MEANS RUBBING WOOD, PLANTS OR GRASSES TOGETHER TO CREATE A COAL EMBER. HOWEVER, I DON’T REALLY GO OVER THE “OTHER” WAYS TO MAKE PHYRE UNLESS SOMEBODY SPECIFICALLY ASKS – I’LL BE GLAD TO SHOW THEM THAT TOO.

HERE’S MY ORGANIZATIONAL IDEA OF THEM:

(FL) FOCUSED LIGHT – WHICH IS A SUNLIGHT THROUGH A LENS METHOD.

(FP) FIRE PISTON – WHICH IS AN AIR COMPRESSION METHOD.

(FS) FLINT & STEEL – WHICH IS A PERCUSSION METHOD.

SO, IT SEEMS THAT IN THE GAME “MINECRAFT” YOU CAN DO “FLINT & STEEL.”

MinecraftFlintAndSteel

AND ONE DAY, MY SON, JAKE, ASKS IF I CAN SHOW HIM FLINT & STEEL!!!! ( I ALMOST CRIED.) I TOLD HIM THAT I WASN’T SURE WHERE I LEFT IT, BUT IF I COME ACROSS IT I WILL SHOW HIM RIGHT AWAY. WELL, IT SEEMS I JUST HAPPENED TO FIND IT THE NEXT DAY. SO, I CHARRED SOME COTTONBALLS IN A TIN IN A PHYRE, KNOCKED OFF A FLAKE OF CHERT, AND I SHOWED HIM HOW TO DO IT. AND, OF COURSE, I WANTED US TO FOREVER REMEMBER THIS MOMENT OF HIS FIRST EVER FLINT & STEEL – SO, HERE’S A VIDEO OF JAKE DOING HIS FIRST FLINT & STEEL.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jerusalem_artichoke

WHICH I’VE REALLY BEEN WAITING FOR TO HARVEST AND PHYREHACK! HERE’S WHAT IT USED TO LOOK LIKE…

0006 SRM PLUS 092513 WED 049-900

AND, HERE’S WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE NOW.

PK 0007 PART 2 110213 FRI 001-9

I WILL BE HARVESTING THIS FOR THE NOVEMBER PHYREKEEPER. ALSO, I MENTIONED IT BEFORE, BUT I’M GOING TO DO PHYREKEEPER AS A MONTHLY INSTEAD OF BIMONTHLY. MY KIDS HOMEWORK AND PROJECTS ARE GETTING MORE INVOLVED – PLUS, THE HOLIDAYS ARE UPON US, SO YOU KNOW HOW IT IS.

***************************************************

YOU MAY RECALL I JUST RECENTLY DID A PHYREHACK OF MIMOSA TREE (ALBIZIA JULIBRISSIAN.)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Albizia_julibrissin

I WENT BACK TO THAT AREA TO GATHER FROM A GREAT TRIBE OF MULLEINS (WHICH I WILL SHOW YOU BELOW LATER.) WHILE I WAS THERE I HARVESTED SOME MIMOSA BRANCHES  FOR (HD) HAND DRILLS OR (MD) MOUTH DRILLS, ALONG WITH SOME SEED PODS TO GROW SOME SAPLINGS IN THE “PHYRE-PHARM” GARDEN NEXT YEAR.

PK 102013 SUN 011-9

CLEANED AND CLEARED THE BRANCHES.

PK 102013 SUN 012-9

PROCESSED AND PACKAGED!  FOUR 2 FOOT SPINDLES AND A GALLON BAG OF SEED PODS.

BRANCHES ARE “GREEN” AND WILL GO IN STORAGE FOR DRYING TO BE AVAILABLE FOR USE NEXT YEAR.

PK 102313 WED 001-9

***************************************************

ABOUT A 1/2 MILE FROM WHERE I LIVE IS A NURSERY SCHOOL/CHURCH. WHAT YOU SEE BELOW IS THE KIDS SOCCER FIELD FENCE ROW FROM THE ROAD SIDE VIEW. WHAT YOU’RE LOOKING AT ARE SOME LONG DEAD AND DRIED STALKS OF PRICKLY LETTUCES (LACTUCA SERRIOLA.)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lactuca_serriola

I WENT INSIDE THE ADMINISTRATION BUILDING ONE MORNING AND ASKING TO SPEAK TO THE GROUNDSKEEPER. I MET HIM AND ASKED IF I COULD HARVEST SOME OF “THOSE DEAD WEEDS” ALONG THE FENCE FOR A “BOY SCOUT PROJECT.” HE SAID, “NO PROBLEM. HELP YOURSELF.” SO, I DID. IT WAS, I THINK, ESPECIALLY SMART ON MY PART TO FORMALLY ASK FOR PERMISSION BECAUSE NO ONE WANTS A KNIFE WIELDING STRANGER ON YOUR PROPERTY WHERE THERE’S KIDS.

PK 101413 MON 008-9

HERE IS THAT HARVEST BELOW WITH ALEXA AND THE FOUR FOOT LEVEL DISPLAYING RELATIVE SIZE.

PK 101413 MON 003-9

SOME OF THE PROCESSED STALKS CLEANED AND CUT TO 2 FOOT LENGTHS.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paulownia_tomentosa

REMEMBER WHEN I COLLECTED SOME PAULOWNIA TOMENTOSA FROM THE RT 31 SALVAGE?

RT 31 SOUTH HARVEST 080613 TUE 006 4INW

WELL, I’VE TAKEN IT OUT OF STORAGE FROM DRYING IN MY SHED THESE MANY MONTHS AND DID MY FIRST EVER PHYREHACK WITH PAULOWNIA TOMENTOSA. SEE THAT VIDEO ON YOUTUBE HERE:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BGA6XSTEMJQ

******************************************

PROTECTOR WARRIOR MEME ORIGINAL MISTRAL

“BEHIND THE GUARDRAIL…”

I ONCE SHOWED YOU THAT I’VE COLLECTED FROM HERE BEFORE BUT I ONLY SHOWED YOU THE THREE SMOOTH SUMAC (RHUS GLABRA) STALKS.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rhus_glabra

THIS IS THE ACTUAL AREA FROM WHICH I GATHERED THEM FROM. IT IS EXIT 7 OFF OF RT. 78 EASTBOUND IN NJ. YES, THAT’S MY SUBURBAN RIGHT THERE. SOME OF THOSE SUMACS WERE MOWED IN FRONT THERE IF YOU LOOK. BUT, OTHERWISE, THIS PLACE IS FAIRLY PROTECTED DUE TO THE GUARDRAIL.

PK 0007 PART ONE 101013 THU 059-9

SO, I BEGAN TO SALVAGE WHAT I COULD OF THE MOWED ONES, BUT I HARVESTED A BUNCH OF THE STANDING TRIBE.

PK 0007 PART ONE 101013 THU 061-9

A CLOSER LOOK OF THE TURNING LEAVES.

*************************************************

ON MY WAY HOME FROM A PATIENT’S HOUSE, I GO UP RT. 55 GOING NORTH. BEFORE IT TURNS INTO RT. 42 AND THEN ONTO RT. 295 NORTH, JUST ON THE LEFT I SAW A TRIBE OF SOME MORE SWAMP ROSE MALLOWS (HIBISCUS MOSCHUETOS.)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hibiscus_moscheutos

I DIDN’T GET A PIC OF THE TRIBE, BUT HERE’S WHAT I HARVESTED. I SPREAD A LOT OF SEEDS AND HARVESTED ABOUT A FOURTH OF WHAT WAS THERE.

BELOW, AGAIN, ALEXA STANDS NEXT TO THE GATHERINGS ALONG WITH THE FOUR FOOT LEVEL FOR RELATIVE SIZE.

PK 101413 MON 002-9

BEGINNING THE PROCESSINGS. BAGGING THE SEED PODS.

PK 102013 SUN 009-9

GETTING READY TO CUT THEM TO SIZE AFTER THEY ARE RE-EVALUATED FOR STRAIGHTNESS.

PK 102313 WED 008-9

BUNDLED AND READY FOR DRYING IN STORAGE.

FINAL TOTALS:

SIX – 18″ INCH SPINDLES

&

TWENTY – TWO FOOT SPINDLES!

PK 102313 WED 009-9

*************************************************

THOUGH I DIDN’T GET A PICTURE OF THE SWAMP ROSE MALLOW TRIBE, THIS PHOTO WAS TAKEN TEN FEET FROM THEM. WHILE I WAS HARVESTING THE SWAMP ROSE MALLOWS, I LOOKED AROUND A BIT AND I SAW “SOMETHING” UNUSUALLY HANGING FROM A TREE BRANCH. THEN, I SAW IT WAS BARK FROM THE TREE. AND THEN, I REALIZED IT WAS A TULIP POPLAR TREE (LIRIODENDRON TULIPIFERA.)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Liriodendron_tulipifera

IF YOU DON’T KNOW, IT IS ON OF THE GREAT INNER BARK CORDAGE TREES.

PK 102013 SUN 001-9

A CLOSER LOOK.

PK 102013 SUN 002-9

ANOTHER VIEW.

PK 102013 SUN 003-9

I THEN PULLED THE BARK DOWN AND OFF AND PUT IT IN THE TRUCK ALONG WITH THE SWAMP ROSE MALLOWS.

I ATTEMPTED TO DO A (BD) BOW DRILL CORD WITH SOME OLD TULIP POPLAR BARK I HAVE LYING AROUND FOR DEMO SHOWING PURPOSES. IT’S ON THE PAULOWNIA TOMENTOSA YOUTUBE VIDEO ABOVE IF YOU WANT TO SEE.

*************************************************

IT WOULDN’T BE AN ADVENTURE IF THERE WASN’T A SENSE OF DANGER! 🙂

SO, THESE WERE THE HAZARDS I HAD TO BRAVE IN ORDER TO HARVEST THE SWAMP ROSE MALLOWS AND THE TULIP POPLAR BARK. DO YOU KNOW WHAT THESE ARE STUCK TO MY PANTS?

I HAD TO ENDURE THEM POKING MY SKIN THROUGH THE FABRIC ON THE TWO HOUR RIDE HOME. 🙁

CYBERSHOT PK 102013 SUN 009-9

I DON’T SO MUCH MIND THEM AS THE TIME IT TAKES TO HAVE TO CAREFULLY REMOVE EACH AND EVERY ONE FROM YOUR CLOTHING BEFORE IT GOES INTO THE LAUNDRY!

THEY’RE BEGGAR-TICKS OR STICK-TIGHTS.

PRESERVER HEALER MEME WRITING

I LOVE MULLEINS. I “CUT MY TEETH” ON MULLEINS WHEN I WAS FIRST LEARNING (HD) HAND DRILL HALF A LIFETIME AGO. IT GAVE ME MY FIRST BLISTERS.

ALONG THE SOUTHSIDE STRETCH OF RT. 55 JUST A QUARTER OF A MILE BEFORE EXIT 50 BY THE WAWA GAS STATION, THERE IS A PLACE WHERE THERE IS A HUGE TRIBE OF MULLEINS. THIS IS ALSO THE SAME PLACE I FIRST COLLECTED THE MIMOSA TREE (ALBIZIA JULIBRISSIN) WHICH YOU SAW THE YOUTUBE VIDEOS DOING (MD) MOUTH DRILL AND (HD) HAND DRILL.

NOW, THESE MULLEINS ARE NOT VERBASCUM THAPSUS – THE GREAT OR COMMON MULLEIN. THEY ARE OBVIOUSLY QUITE DIFFERENT IN THEIR STRUCTURES. NOW, IF YOU DON’T KNOW, THERE ARE (ACCORDING TO WIKIPEDIA) ABOUT 250 SPECIES OF VERBASCUM. SO, WHAT WE’RE GOING TO DO IS CAREFULLY GO THROUGH EVERY SINGLE ONE UNTIL YOU CAN FIGURE OUT WHICH ONE IT IS…..

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Verbascum

JUST KIDDING. TRUTH IS – I HAVE NO IDEA WHICH SPECIES OF VERBASCUM IT IS AND REALLY I’M NOT GOING TO SPEND THAT KIND OF TIME FIGURING IT OUT RIGHT NOW. THIS WOULD ONLY REALLY MATTER IF IT WAS AN EDIBLE, MEDICINAL USE OR FOR TOXIC / POISON IDENTIFICATION. AND, IN THIS CASE OF PHRYCTION PHYRE, THAT DOESN’T MATTER BECAUSE NONE OF THE MULLEINS ARE POISON (EXCEPT FOR FISH…)

WIKI ALSO SAYS – “It is considered a first-rate drill for use in the hand drill method of friction fire lighting.[citation needed]

NOW, THE REASON I’VE PLACED THE VERBASCUM HERE IN THE PRESERVER – HEALER SECTION IS TO LET YOU KNOW THAT I REALLY DISLIKE HAVING TO PROCESS MULLEINS UNLESS I HAVE A SHOWER AND CHANGE OF CLOTHES READY. THE DUST AND DEBRIS CREATED FROM PROCESSING THESE PLANTS – WHEN IT SETTLES ON ANY EXPOSED SKIN (AND IT HAS A HABIT OF GETTING UNDER MY CLOTHES AS WELL) IT CAUSES AN ANNOYING PRURITIS (WHICH IS THE MEDICAL TERM FOR ITCHY SKIN.) THE MOMENT I AM DONE PROCESSING THE HARVEST I’M THROWING MY CLOTHES IN THE WASH AND TAKING A SHOWER.

BELOW, JAKE SITS IN THE BACK ON THE SUBURBAN NEAR THE THE MULLEIN HARVEST ON DISPLAY IN TWO VIEWS.

PK 102013 SUN 004-9

PK 102013 SUN 005-9

HERE BELOW, I’VE CUT THE TOPS AWAY FROM THE MAIN STALKS, AND I’VE STARTED TO REMOVE SOME OF THE LEAVES FROM SOME OF THOSE STALKS.

PK 102013 SUN 007-9

PK 102013 SUN 008-9

NO, I DID NOT SAVE ANY OF THE LEAVES FOR TOBACCO OR MEDICINAL PURPOSES. AND, WITH THE PURITITIS I WOULD NEVER USE IT FOR THE TOILET PAPER THAT IT’S FAMOUS FOR. (THAT’S FOR FRESH GREEN LEAVES ANYWAY.)

BELOW, ARE THE QUICK PROCESSED STALKS WITH THE LEAVES REMOVED. THEY ARE STILL NOT CLEANED AND CUT TO REGULAR LENGTHS YET. THE FOUR FOOT LEVEL SHOWS RELATIVE SIZE AND LENGTH.

PK 102013 SUN 022-9

BELOW, THE UNKNOWN MULLEINS ARE FINALLY PROCESSED WITH A FINAL CLEANING AND SMOOTHING FOLLOWED BY BEING CUT TO 2 FOOT, 18 INCH AND ONE FOOT LENGTHS. THE DEBRIS IS ON THE LEFT AT THE BOTTOM OF THE BAND SAW.

PK CYBERSHOT 102613 SAT 001-9

A CLOSER LOOK AT THE CUT STALKS.

PK CYBERSHOT 102613 SAT 002-9

THE CUTTINGS. THESE GO IN THE KINDLING BOX AS STARTER FUEL FOR THE WOOD STOVE.

PK CYBERSHOT 102613 SAT 003-9

BELOW, THE UNKNOWN MULLEINS ARE BUNDLED AND READY TO BE PUT AWAY.

FINAL TOTALS –

TWENTY FOUR – 2 FOOT SPINDLES

ELEVEN – 18 INCH SPINDLES

SEVEN – ONE FOOT SPINDLES

SALVAGE OPERATION

ALONG AN AREA NEAR SOME BUSINESSES IS A WOODED CUL-DE-SAC. ONE DAY AS MY SON JAKE WAS DOING A BOY SCOUT PROJECT NEARBY, I COLLECTED SOME GREAT BURDOCKS (ARCTIUM LAPPA) THAT WERE HALF MOWED DOWN. I SALVAGED WHAT I COULD.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arctium_lappa

HERE, I’VE ALREADY CUT ONE STALK UP WITH TWO MORE BELOW THE STACK.

PK 102313 WED 002-9

BELOW, ARE FOURTEEN 9 INCH SHORT SPINDLES FOR EITHER (BD) BOW DRILLS OR FOR “RELOADS.”

PK 102313 WED 003-9

BAGGED! AND READY FOR STORAGE!

EPIMETHEI MEME MISTRAL WRITING

*************

IN THE LAST PROMETHEI, I TALKED ABOUT THE ORIGINAL PERSPECTIVE OF PHRYCTION PHYREKEEPING.

I GOT AN OPPORTUNITY TO TALK AT LENGTH ON AND ABOUT THIS DURING AN INTERVIEW I DID WITH RICARDO SIERRA WHO IS CO-DIRECTOR AND CO-FOUNDER OF HAWK CIRCLE NATURE SCHOOL IN NY. RICARDO AND I HAVE KNOWN EACH OTHER SINCE 1986. RICARDO HAS BEGUN A TELE-SUMMIT CALLED THE WOLVERINE WAY.

I’VE GRABBED SOME PHOTOS BELOW OF THE HAWK CIRCLE WEBSITE AND THE WOLVERINE WAY’S FB PAGE.

IT WAS ONLY SUPPOSED TO BE ABOUT AN HOUR BUT IT WENT TO AN HOUR AND A HALF.

I ALWAYS SAY THAT I’LL RUN OUT OF TIME BEFORE I RUN OUT OF THINGS TO TEACH…

IT’LL BE READY FOR RELEASE SOON. GO TO THE WOLVERINE WAY FB PAGE AND “LIKE” IT FOR UPDATES.

BUT, I’LL LET YOU KNOW WHEN IT’S OUT TOO. STAY TUNED.

Saturday, January 25th, 2014  1pm-3pm
Bowman’s Hill WildFlower Preserve in New Hope, PA

“From Friendly Flowers to Friction Fire”

Native Plants and WildFlowers are great to enjoy in the warmer times of the year. Many of us are aware that many of them have benefits to humanity by also being edible as well as medicinal. But, what about the long winter months? What knowledge and experience can we acquire from standing skeletons? There is also a long forgotten utilitarian use – the science and art of Friction Firemaking. Obviously, the creation and control of Fire was necessary for our thriving across the globe. Join us for a two hour demonstration given by Joseph Lau of every known Friction Fire method from around the world with specimens that are found all around us.

Hands-on experience following demo and handouts.
