For those of you who remain unaware- as was I until recently- the Perfect Stove System is a reality! Rand and the other wizards at the TD skunkworks are now marketing titanium versions of the UL C...

+1 Haleakala, though it is on Maui
The hike from the Haleakala summit to the sea is on my life list. It's just a couple of days, but it looks to be spectacular and unique. And it ends near the "Seven Sacred Pools"- n...

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Goose Down, Humane?
Prescribing a lethal medication is "active" enough for me, Douglas. I just couldn't do it, personally. I have triaged war casualties as expectant. And I have no doubt that I have s...

Gerber Sharpener
I have a Lansky 5-hone kit that I've had for decades that will put a HECK of an edge on almost anything. But if you aren't really into the Zen of Knife Sharpening- and it doesn't sound...

Sawyer In-Line Filter
I have a slightly different kit- the 0.1 micron 4-way filter. Of the filters available I give it a 5. It's not perfect, but IMHO it is the best that is available, hands down. The 4-way kit come...
