I Have Decided to Go Look for My Father - Chapter 276
Find a place with moderate soil moisture, dig a hole first, then build the stones around it…
Gu Xi followed step by step, but then she realised that it didn’t work?
“The guide provided by the blogger isn’t from a game right.” Gu Xi couldn’t help muttering as she glanced at the wild stove in front of her which looked decent, but in fact it would collapse when given a light push.
Feeling helpless, Gu Xi had no choice but to tear it down and try again.
On the other side, Gu Shao had chosen a spot to set up the tent and fixed the general framework of the tent together with Gu Chenyi. As he walked over, he saw Gu Xi squatting on the ground, so absorbed with what she was working on, but he was not sure what it was.
When Gu Shao got closer, he then found out that Gu Xi was building the stove, and she was almost done.
Watching Gu Shao approaching, Gu Xi was taken aback for a moment, and asked with some uncertainty: “Is this okay?”
The method on the strategy guide was too much of a fraud, so Gu Xi decided to follow her own way.
“…” Gu Shao remained silent for two seconds as he stared at the stove that Gu Xi built. He breathed an inward sigh, and really didn’t know how to answer Gu Xi’s question.
He wanted to say no, but when he saw how focused Gu Xi was, he was afraid that it would blow off her enthusiasm.
“Let me take a look.” Gu Shao walked beside Gu Xi and squatted down. He examined it ‘pretentiously’, but in his mind he was ready to rebuild it when Gu Xi wasn’t paying attention.
The outcome was somewhat beyond Gu Shao’s expectations: The stove that Gu Xi built looked sloppy, as if it would collapse with just one touch, but in fact, it was quite sturdy.
Gu Shao examined the stove and found that the stones on the stove are very stable. In addition, when he looked carefully, the gap between the ventilation and place to put the pot was also reasonable.
Gu Shao was a little surprised. He turned his head slightly to look at Gu Xi and asked: “Where did you learn this from?”
This wasn’t the usual way to build a field stove, but it works indeed.
“I didn’t learn,” Gu Xi said. She pointed to the stones on everyone’s stove, and said, “I built it according to the marks on it.”
The camping organiser specially prepared these stones for those who came so that they could experience what it was like to cook in the open field.
Therefore, these stones were already picked beforehand, the ones that could be used for building the stoves.
Just a moment ago when Gu Xi was holding these stones feeling lost, she suddenly discovered that there were marks left by the others who used them previously.
The exposed and burnt areas were relatively darker, whereas the joint areas still maintained their original colour.
Hence, Gu Xi built the stove according to the shade of the marks on these stones, while making some adjustments during the process, roughly based on her little knowledge of physics and mechanics. However, Gu Xi wasn’t sure whether that was the way.
“So, is this okay?” Gu Xi looked at Gu Shao again and asked, a little nervous.
“No problem.” Gu Shao said with a smile. He didn’t change the basic structure of the stove, but just slightly reinforced the edge of the stove.
Hearing Gu Shao’s words, Gu Xi smiled.
“Then I’ll go get the ignition tools!” After speaking, Gu Xi ran over excitedly and brought over the ignition tools.
Amidst the items provided by the camping organiser, not only the stove must be built in the most primitive way, but the ignition tools provided are also the most primitive, most likely so as to let everyone experience the fun of traditional camping and field cooking.
However, fortunately, these were also in the strategy guide that Gu Xi prepared.
Gu Xi held the modified version of the ignition tool in her hands and studied it for a while. As she roughly found the method, she crouched in front of the stove and began to work on it.
Upon seeing Gu Xi’s enthusiastic look, Gu Shao really didn’t want to interrupt, so he just let it off with Gu Xi.
Gu Shao went by the side himself and shared a photo of the stove he took just now to his social media.
As soon as the post was uploaded, he received a comment.
[Gu Xuan: Hahaha, this stove is so ugly, who built it?]
Gu Xuan wanted to know whether the stove was built by Gu Yanxiao or his son.
As he read Gu Xuan’s comment, a trace of dissatisfaction flashed across Gu Shao’s eyes, and he replied coldly: [Your son’s tent is even uglier, do you want to see?]
On the other side, Xu Fei, who was still working overtime at NTN, also saw Gu Shao’s post.
Xu Fei knew that Gu Shao had brought the three kids from the Gu family to participate in the school’s Quality Development Outing, but he didn’t know in the photo of the stove that the boss posted, who among the three of them created this ‘masterpiece’.
After some thoughts, Xu Fei tentatively commented: [The method used to build this stove is very creative and special.]
Within the next second, seeing Gu Shao replying to him with a ‘satisfied’ emoji, Xu Fei knew that he had guessed it right: this stove was definitely built by Gu Xi, it can’t be wrong!
Let’s go with the rainbow fart spree!
