Re: Cook pot cleaning
Nothing. I do add-boiling-water meals only. In the past, I have had meals that required some cooking - I used river sand, as it was an uncoated pot (the only kind I will get - no Teflon for me). Mo...

Re: Sun protective gloves
I try to protect the backs of my hands even if wearing short sleeves. My arms don't burn any more, at least not painfully, but the backs of my hands get exposure when I'm fishing unless I w...

Re: Central California Coastal Pack List
For winter? I take three season gear (which is to say, 20F comfort rated sleeping setup) to the coast all winter. Your clothing looks like overkill. I would take a pump filter - unless you are fron...

Re: Woman orders bear to stop breaking her kayak, bear doesn't listen (VIDEO)
What she's doing is what I have done escorting a bear out of my campsite - you make noise. If you don't want to make nonsense noises, you talk, or yell, whatever comes to mind. Shouting...

Re: MSR Guardian - Self Cleaning Water Filter
If you were a bacteria, a virus by comparison would be a mouse. No way will that filter viruses. All purifiers use other means to treat them. I suppose they are using "filter" as a generi...

Re: Real hikers invited to Alaska
It's somewhat annoying when people take a handful of events and decide to discount an entire state/park/area as somewhere they want to go, despite the fact that it's not a representative ex...

re: sleeping bag
I have dropped, over the years, more than $1000 on quality down gear - down booties, down jackets, down quilts, a down filled sleeping pad - and have yet to regret a single one. None of those items...

Re: Good UL pack for Small Woman
Check manufacturer websites. What will often happen (in my neck of the woods anyway) is that box stores won't stock sizes that don't sell enough, aka very large or very small packs. Gregory...

Re: Whistle
Actually, the whistle is for continuing to make noise without shouting yourself hoarse. Neither a whistle or a voice is loud enough to be heard very far. This I have experienced. SAR had to be a...

Warbonnet BlackBird
It was made by a hammocker and includes lots of nice little features that add up to a high quality, comfortable, versatile hammock. I've hung the Blackbird in less than optimal places, over brush ...

Hennessy Hammock Asym
The Hennessy was my starter hammock. I had an Ultralight Backpacker Asym. I used the HH for a year, and have to say that it completely re-organized my priorities for backpacking. I hated tents; cl...
