My Locale North East Ohio
About Me I'm an ARMY Veteran of 13.5 years. I spent the years mostly in combat oriented jobs, mainly Infantry, which gave me a chance to see the world. That was my introduction to backpacking of a sort. Through my Military career, I backpacked more than 10,000 miles. Now I go simply because I love it. I also mountain bike, rock climb, kayak, and do nature photography. I wouldn't call my self an ultra-lighter per say, but my base weight is just below 12 lbs.

No, I get one every year or two. It's not actually a coupon. It's an in store credit that they apply to your account for a free $20.00 credit. They send you an e mail notification for it. T...

Re: "Punching a hole into sawyer water bladders"
I don't have any experience with Sawyer Bladders personally. I punch holes in Platypus bladders for hanging though and have never had an issue. If the new style of Sawyer Bladders are similar, ...

Re: Wind Instruments
I also have 2 bamboo didgeridoos, but they're a little heavy and bulky for backpacking. Both are carved and burnished as well, so I don't want them damaged. I have Native American rawhid...

Re: Code
When I order from them fairly regularly, I don't get this kind of coupon. It only shows up occasionally when I go more than a year without ordering something. It's an e mail they send me...

Re: Do you take along a musical instrument?
Thanks Dale. I've checked out the site before and had forgotten about it. I just looked again. I was hoping he'd released one that's in the key of G or preferably in the key of F#...

Do you take along a musical instrument?
A thread on dulcimers got me to thinking. Does anyone carry a musical instrument with them backpacking? If so, what is it? Is it MYOG? I carry a Native American Style Flute with me on occasion.

Re: Re: What do YOU use to carry alcohol?
David, if you use black food coloring in the fuel, then what produces the residual green color in the bottom of the stove? --B.G.-- I would assume that it's the left over residue from par...

There's so much ranting I could do here that I'd sound like a lunatic. Once when I was in dire straights financially, I worked briefly in a Walmart Photo Center. Never again. Slightly ch...
