Re: Re: Titanium Pot (tweeking)
The BPL SUL long handled spoon is "the spoon" as far as I am concerned. It's perfect... serves up food like a ladle scouping every drop from a food bag and my knuckles never get food...

Re: Lost Camper Found
Something about that story doesn't ring true to me. I am glad it ended well and the two hikers did a great thing.

Re: Energy Tea
I like teas that have caffeine in them. I have never had Sportea but I have had Yerba Mate. I don't care for the taste and it isn't that caffeinated. I didn't get any "pick me u...

Re: Tarp/Bivy advice needed.
What dates in August will you be on the JMT, if you don't mind my asking? I say a good bivy is worth it. You'll get a lot of service after the JMT as well. It's a very versatile pi...

Re: Help Me Find a Tee for Travels
My best hiking shirts in this category are my running shirts. They are Coolmax shirts mady by Brooks. The grey ones seem to be the best. The blue and white ones aren't just a different color...

Re: Re: Groovy-Biotic Cooking
You know, this makes me think of the days when I was playing with a solar cooker. I was amazed that I could cook pretty much anything. Up until that point I didn't realize that technically fo...

Re: Re: Re: Potty Trowel pattern
OK... I went through three wheels. That doesn't necessarily count as a "LOT". A little dramatic exaggeration on my part. I didn't have a pair of snips that were up to the task....

Re: Re: 1.25 lbs of food per day?
For a given distance I don't think pace is as big of a contributing factor as the total mass of the hiker and changes in elevation (the route of the hike). Consider the case of two hikers of...

Pro-Tick Remedy Pro-Tick
I am so glad someone posted a review of this gizmo. First let me say that you can remove a tick with a pair of tweezers. The Pro-Tick Remedy tool is not multi-use like tweezers. That said, it w...

Repel Lemon Euculyptus Insect Spray
I am a huge fan of 3M Ultrathon largely because the stuff works REALLY WELL... for what I use it for. So this is sort of my "gold standard"... encapsulated DEET lotion. That said, differ...

Now here is a review you don't see every day. This was a very thoughtful gift from my dear wife. I am an avid guitar player but leave my music at home when I hike because a flat-top 6-string ...

What's with people that review gear they have never owned nor tested in the field? This is a mystery to me. Anyway, on to the Jetboil. I bought this because... I had an REI dividend and the...
