Okay, I was really impressed with all your details of making your clothing, and doing your own weaving, and the rest...UNTIL you got to the part about soaking the quills from a roadkilled porcupine in your MOUTH!! ACK!! The things we learn on this board! From brain tanning to spit soaking...what a wealth of information! I take it frontiersman's saliva has more softening agents in it than spring water?
I knew there was some reason I head out to the woods wearing my OWN clothes, sans decorations...never had to spit on any of 'em! ;o)
