@ "Really?" I don't think he meant a grain of truth in that martial law would be a good idea. I think he means a grain of truth in that there ARE people here in the U.S. who are a...

Re: Re: No great lead alternatives

No great lead alternatives
DU is used in warfare also because of its hardness, not just because of it's density. It also has the interesting property that when compressed it sheds white-hot flakes, which makes it very h...

Re: Re: Backpacking in Hunting Season
I don't like hikers. Those people aren't screwed down too tight. They cut wood for illegal campfires, leave garbage and human waste laying on trails, get drunk and trip over my guylines i...

Ultimate Hiker's Gear Guide -Andrew Skurka book
Wow, how to rate this book? It is NOT meant for someone who is already an experienced UL hiker. There is nothing in this book that someone like that doesn't already know or can find out in fiv...

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...
