Bad reviews for SteriPen Journey
Looking at REI site there are many bad reviews for the SteriPen Journey. Only 2 Star rating on a fairly large sample set of 21 reviews. Similar complaints also from a couple of MEC reviewers. So lo...

Why a calculator?
I have to admit to being totally mystified as to why anyone would take a 4 oz calculator on a backpacking trip. And this from a guy who has exhorted me to not take a GPS or Cell Phone or First Aid ...

Re: Re: Doxycycline prophylaxis
Antisocial? No, but medically irresponsible. Doctors should not be handing out antibiotics to people with viruses, that we know well. The greater issue is that people should not stop taking an anti...

Doxycycline prophylaxis
So if I find a black-legged tick feeding on me (yes we have them here on Vancouver Island) then why wouldn't I just self-medicate with Doxycycline?? Seems like the prudent thing to do. Then go ...
