Re: Anyone tried Ryan Jordan's new recipe?
I'll bet if you read the ingredients on the labels it wouldn't be so simple... the gravy mix prolly reads like a chemistry experiment! Haha. I used to feel the same way as Ryan. I wen...

Re: UL Baking
I loved this post, Sarah, so thanks for it. I do a lot of steam baking. I use "Betty Crocker Warm Delights" which turn out GREAT.

Re: alcohol stoves
I use a piece of foil and I just wrap it loosely around the stove so the setup doesn't overheat. I see a lot of alcohol stoves that people run way too hot. They wrap the windscreen too tightl...

You just need to buy it and then impress her with the nice wooden box it comes in and the superior craftsmanship. It's a work of art, not just a stove! If that don't work remind her who...

Re: Re: re:2 liter japanese beer cans vs. re-sealable aluminum

Re: Stove for firelite 500
I found that the Nion 2 works well with this pot. It's a cool stove, but requires a pot stand. On edit I need to correct myself. I meant the Nion 1... I only just ordered the Nion 2. Stil...

Re: Alcohol stove idea
I have never tried this. Give it a shot. It's a good idea. The heat exchanger on the JetBoil pot/mug seems to work very well, although all my "tests" have just been field experienc...

Re: Pic of Bushbuddy Nested in MSR Ti Kettle
The Bushbuddy DOES fit inside the MSR Ti Kettle... sort of. It has the proper diameter but is too tall. So the lid won't close. It's perhaps a quarter of an inch too tall. I'll try ...

Re: Ultralight Knives and Other Sharp Things
I eat the MONSTROUS weight of the Leatherman Micra today. I love that thing but in truth I would say I use the scissors and the knife blade heavily. I have used the tweezers a few times (cactus t...

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...
