August 31
A travel day. Kaitlin and I are on food. We packed too much as we were accounting for breakfast as well. We burnt the rice, but it tasted good anyway.

September 1
I found some wood beetle drawings on a fallen tree during a trip to the toilet.

September 2
I want to build some swamp sculptures. How to get across? Stilts.
3 pairs of stilts later, a functioning pair are born.

Ive abandoned swamp sculptures - stilts are the way forward.
