    Well, shit. I'll tell the story.

    We were out in forks for a December weekend. Evan, was that the weekend that my stupid, drunk ass fell in the river, and we ate dinner while all my shit was drying at the Forks laundromat? Hmmm...

    Rolled into Hoh Oxbow, and set up camp. Went to build the fire. I've lit a few fires in my life. Never really had a problem getting one going. We fucked with that fire for an hour. Got a small fire of tinder/kindle, and added wood. Nada. Again. Nada. It was weird, because the wood was dry as a bone. Evan has a pump for his boat that connects to the car batt. Thing is super powerful. When you hit the switch, it torques in your hand. We hit it with that. The fire went up like a blast furnace. We thought we were in bizniz. As soon as we killed the pump, it would die down to an ember the size of a lit cig. Demoralized, we tried adding alcohol. Not to the fire, mind. I'm not sure how long our cold drunk asses stared at that ember, when out of the blue, Christian Brewer who we were fishing with earlier, showed up with flammable firewood. He got the fire roaring in 2 minutes. I shared what was left of my whisky, and we sat around the fire bullshitting till late(early). Man that was a good weekend.

    Pardon the less than stellar photos. I was just packing a little p&s, and didn't feel like fucking with it too much.

    That's an Atlantic salmon. You can tell by the lighter coloration on the top. Nice specimen. The one in the background looks like it's pretty spawned out. BTW, not to be a dick, but you should show some respect for the resource and not hold them out of the water like that. Sorry, just my .02

    Edit-just looked closer and saw they don't have an adipose twig. My bad. Bonk and enjoy.

    Conifer, certainly a conifer. C is for Conifer, over five hundred kinds.

    Odd. Most conifers go up in blaze of glory. Unless its some Nomex hybrid I would try rubbing it down with some good ol' fish oil.

    So I sent a pic of the wood to a friend who loves to burn shit. He said it's most likely sweet pine, burns like crap, and should be left street side labeled "FREE".
