RE: How do you UL
PJ I made the kit myself. Got items from EMT supply, Drugstore.com, Walgreens, local medical supply stores. Some items I had to buy bulk, so resupply is going to be easy. Use various aloksaks to o...

How do you UL?

Bus into Denver
Randy, Coming in at 10:30 at night to get a room, I would suggest getting off at the Englewood Bus Stop, take a taxi (Yellow 303-777-7777 or Metro 303-333-3333) to the Days Inn at 3440 S. Vance ...

Photon Light Proton Personal Flashlight
I would give the Proton a 4 out of 5 score primarily because of its high cost ($69). It is an excellent light if you need to do any emergency signaling at night or if you need a high intensity beam fo...

Six Moon Designs Lunar Solo
I like the simplicity in the concept of the design. It is a combination of bivy sack and single wall tent with plenty of room that weighs in at 25 ounces. The bathtub floor and netting along the floor...

I too am a firm believer in gravity filters. It is a blessing that you can still get filtered water with little effort while you complete some other chore around camp. I have used self made gravity fi...

GoLite Breeze
I have to say this is not the worst pack I ever had, but close to it. I do like the simplicity, but the straps are just killer. With 18 pounds I can carry on one shoulder and switch sides, but when ...
