After doing that, I proceeded to gather some wood and I looked around my surroundings. I found a nice cave system with some starter iron and coal.
A really cool extreme hills area,
And some horses.
After gathering the pumpkins and some seeds, I headed back to my base. Dispatching a creeper, I mined out some coal and got ready for bed. Night falls. I decided to remove the waterfall and clear out a small area in my caver-house, to make a sort of garden/farm. I'm going to make do with stone tools for the next few Minecraft weeks to make a nice glass roof and improve my shelter. I'm going to get started on a perimeter wall to keep unwanted visitors out.
Until next time
