OK, so each cube weighs .5 oz., and it takes 2 cubes (1.0 oz.) to make a real cup of joe, right? That same ounce will get you 7 packs of Starbucks Via, and they don't have that foo-foo sweet st...

BPL articles
Actually, Rex, I will be taking copies of those to the meeting, and I will be paraphrasing your words extensively. A year ago, Ryan gave me the OK to photocopy the 3-part series for handouts to the...

DeLorme inReach S
Rex, your report was interesting, and rather thorough. In addition, it happens to be quite timely for me. Tomorrow night, our Boulder Lightpackers meet-up group will be discussing "Communicati...

FP pre-filter material
