Every Day Firewood

Though every meal in camp is cooked on open fires and thus requires firewood, the mid-winter climate in arid Australia greatly increases the need for wood collection.  Most of the reasonably good wood close to camp has been long since used, which is where my car comes in handy. We drive to stands of mulga that are beyond walking distance and in search of ironwood or gidgee that burn all night and hold their embers in tact we venture up to 15 kilometres from camp.
