Please adhere to proper hatchet usage guidelines at all times.
Please remember that a hatchet is not an axe. The head on your hatchet – you know, the sharp end – is much closer to your person than that on an axe.
And please, just in case, carry a first aide kit.
Bumpas just completed some hands-on research to inspire these pleadings. He now has four rather large stitches in his leg.
And here’s the rub: the wood Bumpas was creatively chopping, the log that bounced the hatchet into his leg, was still too young and too green – we couldn’t even burn the sucker when we returned to our campsite from the Eureka Springs ER.
