does anyone carry an ax?

Post by AZ_Hiker » Oct 23 2003 5:03 pm

I have never but am wondering if for over nighters and those that build fires.. do you carry one.


like I said I have never. I have never built a fire in arizona tho I reserve the right to if I choose:) So I have never carried an ax. if I were to, what should I get or to save the weight should I just look for wood that is easly handled ?

I guess I should start carrying one. That way I would have one to grind...

I try not to carry anything heavier than a grudge or split anything bigger than a hair.

@kevinweitzel75

If you carry one of the Heineken mini-kegs, it will double as a bear canister...

Yeah, any time you are looking to pack a small bear, get a small bear canister, or mini-keg.
