Birch bark today from a snag in my Grandpa's woods.
Growing on the snag were about a dozen of these shrooms:
Some friends tell me that the shrooms could be either tinder fungus, birch polypore, or razor strop fungus which can be used as a strop compound, or a plaster for cuts. The birch bark is great stuff, it's got natural combustible oils in it that touch off really easily, even when wet.
You will not find the American People easy prey!
