MLHNZ camp 2009.  Quick portable forge setup.  Pile of stone blocks (porous ignimbrite/welded tuff - it’s quite refractory and insulates well), single bellows, short square stump anvil and a bick iron, and I’m cheating by using my 14th century handgun as a counterweighted bellows lever suspended from the hawthorn tree above.
