electrical tape was ok
I've actually done the same with electrical tape. I forgot it was on there and washed it. It held up fine so ive kept it. Edit - note I did not run it through the dryer so YMMV!

I didn't read through this whole thread but in response to the OP I noticed this trend towards self sufficiency myself when I got back into backpacking in recent years. Back when I was a scout ...

I'm going to go out on a limb and call bogus on the bear issue. I hate it when concern about food smells is used as a reason to shut down a discussion because a lot of people don't camp nea...

In Missouri (where I'm guessing it rains a lot and is hot in summer) that tent might not be as good as a plastic tarp. I have a similar Wenzel one and while it's nice and warm in the drafty...

Trangia 28-5 Mini Aluminum Cook Pot
I recently got this set so I have not used it too much yet. Regarding the tight fitting lid - you can just set it on top of the pot as though it were in frying pan mode. It has a groove on the bottom ...
