Len at Long Pond

This is Len – our famous FIREMASTER.  He talks about specific heat while carefully pre-warming carefully selected pieces of firewood for a fire.  With few exceptions Len has always had a successful fire. A number of years ago we hiked into Long Pond in November to watch the meteor shower.  Len agreed to pose for this photo.  (We also have some photos of Len that he didn’t agree to pose to, but since Len is a High School teacher and still our friend we are keeping those in the archives.)

Later in the day we tried to teach Len the mechanics of a bowline knot.

The rabbit comes out of the hole, around the tree and back down the hole!

Rob explains:  The rabbit comes out of the hole, around the tree and back into the hole….  Len strangled the rabbit, tied himself to the tree and never really got the hang of tieing a bowline knot.

Instead he resolved to “if you can’t tie a knot – then tie a lot”.

Part of our entertainment was trying to teach Len to tie a bowline knot.
