Re: Meals when any fires are forbidden
This probably wouldn't be ideal for France, but I dehydrate my own meals and they rehydrate just fine with cold water. I make pulled pork or chicken using pork tenderloin or chicken breast, ...

Re: Sierra Cup
I always thought the Sierra Club was the worst design ever. You cannot drink from one without spilling all over. They don't hold much. Anything hot poured into one gets cold almost instantly. A...

Re: Re: Ancient Shoes
+1 to Craig as well. I've been wearing minimalist shoes for several years now and I just love them. When I go hiking or backpacking I prefer a bit of cushioning but I feel best without the h...

Re: Search and rescue crews warn about online-based groups
