Incorporating Gear Infatuation into a Minimalist Lifestyle
I love the simple life and hate clutter. But there was a time up to just a few years ago that I also craved new gear -- loved buying and trying out new stuff. And how did I reconcile the two? Ea...

Re: When cultures and fannies clash

Big Sky Ultra C Aluminum Tent Stakes
I've been using titanium shepherd hook stakes for years now -- loving their ultralight weight but disappointed with their suboptimal ground penetration and holding power. These stakes can be bent...

Titanium Goat Adjustable CF Trekking Poles
I received my pair and went on a moderate 2-hour hike today (approx. 2,000 ft. elevation gain over 2.7 miles -- then returning back down). I find the specs to be accurate, and the poles a beauty to...
