Re: hiking alone

Re: Hiking Alone
Ken, there is an additional risk to going solo. If you fall off a cliff, get struck by lightning, or have a heart attack, there is no one there to give you a hand. Having said that, most of my trip...

Re: Options for lifting a hot can
David, I really like your coat hanger pot grabber; can't wait to make one. Another solution I found is to cut a piece of blue foam to fit inside of your hand. The weight of the piece I cut is...

Re: UltraLight Outfitters Stove Stuff

Re: Ultralight Outfitters Beer can stove and alchohol
Daniel, I tried it with Sgt. Rock's Ion Stove and it works well. The fuel efficiency of the Ion stove and the Esbit tabs are similar,about.5 oz. per boil. There would be a weight penalty for the s...

Re: tyvek envelopes
I may be wrong about this, but I think I saw plans for tyvek underwear on "The Red Green Show". Seems like it also involved some duct tape.....

Re: Rain Pants vs/ Windpants
At a presentation at the REI Denver Flagship store earlier this month, Golite's Coup said something like: "If you need to carry rain pants in Colorado, you're paranoid". O.K., so call me paranoid....

Lighten Up! by Don Ladigin
