Re: Re: What do you do in the woods...

Re: Re: Re: Less trees, more water for California?
The San Joaquin will soon be the largest desert in the US. I mean most of the lakes are already dried up to be had for water for LA. Then they won't even have to move to Arizona or new Mexico.

Re: One Tent or two for a family of four

Fenix L2D-CE
Everything else is just a light. For its weight, its 2-40 times brighter and lasts 5-10 time longer. Now they just need to make a 3AAA headlamp with a 5/15/35 lumens setting. The only problem...
