My Locale Maroon Bells
About Me I was more of a BWCA guy but am getting into
backpacking because my wife loves it so much and
then we can do more together. On the sunset side
of 60. In 2008 and 2009 I spent more time backpacking than canoeing.

Yes, remove the plastic. Go to the Tenkara site and under gear maintenance there is a video from Daniel that explains the rods and take down and set up.

sauces for dinner
If I wanted to make the sauces and add them to pastas etc and then dehydrate them and make individual meals for FBC I would back off on the salt. Should I do the same with the vinegar?

Sam, Lucky for me that I live in Mn and the ice isn't out yet. However I was looking forward to drooling over the new rod. It is a good thing marriage has taught me to be more patient.
