Dog's in the wild
I too like to bring my dog along on treks. I also agree that using the same food prevents any change in the dog's digestive tract, therefore insuring consistant stools. As far as the weight of the ...

I found Arm & Hammer Tooth Powder at and I put some in the BMW 0.25 oz vials. There is enough in one vial to last a full week and it does not foam up like paste does.

Bug Bivys and Bug netting - trying to find
I have seen the Oware Bug Bivy, the GoLite Nest, the A-16 Bug Bivy and others. I recently saw one that was an entire sack where you place your pad, bag and you in the sack and close the drawstring....

Lightweight Scouting
I agree that Lightweight Scouting is somewhat an oxymoron if you look at what some of the scout camps require. Some camps say you must carry a hard ‘Nalgene’ lexan type water bottle, that an Aq...

Drops change
Yes there is a difference in the number of drops per quart between the standard dropper that comes with Aqua Mira and the other droppers. Aqua Mira = 7 0.35oz Dropper = 11 BMW Micro Dropper = ...

5 - 20 years to detect
Holy cow... if it takes anywhere from 5 - 20 years to detect, that might make the source almost impossible to locate. PJ, do you know if this is something the canine actually has to defecate in or...

Don't Drink the Water
I started a post under the food, hydration and nutrition section that you might want to look at. I would not, under any circumstance (unless it was matter of life or death) drink water from the so...

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...

I believe each post have their valid points. I believe the general consensus, mine included, is that Beyond Backpacking © is something that should be on every backpacker’s bookshelf. I have read and r...

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 ...

I bought these to replace my older / heavier poles. I prefer collapsible poles so I can adjust the height with my tarps and my SMD Lunar Solo. I did the research before buying and was concerned about...

I think this stove is the next generation of things to come. With a collapsible burner head, it folds over for 3.1 ounces of ultimate compact ability. The oversized burner head offers a better burn an...
