re: Long term dehydration prep for a PCT thruhike
Yes, Katy, you need to carry the olive oil separately, and add it to the freezer bag at the last minute. It not only adds a lot of good fat calories, but it seems to make every meal rich and tasty....

re: Long term dehydration prep for a PCT thruhike
Hi Katy. I have been dehydrating and vacuum sealing my meals for 6-7 years now, and this is easier than you think. I usually will keep my dehydrated meats in the freezer, or at least in the back of...

re: Atmos
I also attended the meeting in Boulder where Gordon tried on the new Atmos loaned to our group by the local Osprey rep. This pack has a very revolutionary suspension/hip belt system that is hard to...

Swiss Card scissors
I use the scissors from the card to open my Micropur foil packets. It's a bit larger than the one on a Classic, so it is easier to work with. I place a small rubber cap over the end to keep the...

Flash Lite burner?

re: unmarried female stoves

Re: Jetboil "Bottom Cup"

Hilleberg Akto
I agree that the Akto is a very strong and high quality 4-season solo tent. But I must add an anecdote to illustrate the what I feel is the tent's main weakness. In early October of '06 we wer...
