Cheap firesteels
Tom - take a look at Brad's link to goinggear's firesteels. The 1/4" X 3" one, plus postage, is a little over $4. For a striker, if you don't want to use your knife, carry a...

Wonderland Trail: circumnavigation around Mt. Rainier
Great pictures! It's a beautiful area. I'm hoping I can talk my brother into hiking it with me next summer. I have a few questions: How much in advance of your trip did you get your pe...

Spring Pasta Salad
I just had this for lunch (at my desk) and it is another instant Evergreen! It worked well with the dehydrated peas I used, because I don't have freeze-dried. And I didn't have olives. B...

freeze dried artichokes
Sarah - I'd settle for dehydrated, rather than freeze-dried, artichokes! I've got to figure out a way to get out ahead of you. The baked ramen is all bought up, apparently, before I'v...

Chicken Pasta Salad
Speaking of desk jobs, I just ate this at my desk where I test drive the fbc recipes. I didn't have the artichoke hearts, but I had everything else, and it is excellent. I used the freeze-dri...

Boomer's Guide to Lightweight Backpacking by Carol Corbridge
I was very disappointed in this book. Luckily, I didn't buy it but had checked it out from the library. For starters, the book is in major need of copy editing. There are lots of awkward sent...

I'm not sure whether to review these in raingear or softshell clothing, because they're both. They are all-day pants, rather than rain pants to pull on over hiking pants and are made of a fab...
