My Locale Western Washington
About Me I started backpacking again in 2008, after a long hiatus---I haven't been since I was a kid. Loving learning about a different way to hike---backpacking was no fun when I was a teen-ager, stuff was too heavy! Completed my dream of hiking the Wonderland Trail in 2010, now onto more hikes in the Cascades and Olympics.

Home dehydrated coconut milk

Is any mention going to be made of the jacket + pants Driducks? I see the poncho, but the Driducks missed the WPB SOTM, and it looks like they're getting a miss here, too. I can read reader r...

pods on keyring
Ok, Dale, next question, what are the two little pods on the keyring? I can identify the Classic and a whistle, a flashlight and firesteel, but there are two little metal pods that I assume unscre...

Oh, sure, natural date sugar is fine. I was just flabbergasted that the mangoes, which are also quite sweet on their own, were heavily sugared, so I thought I'd better ask. Just because it ma...

dates from Costco
Do they have sugar in them? I was very unhappy when I found out their dried mango/berry combo was heavily sugared--I love that stuff, especially with the two varieties of mango, but can't take...

Could someone share their tips/tricks with making Pemmican? I love the Tanka bars, but would rather not have the sugar (in the cranberries). I'd rather be able to use some honey to sweeten in...

quinoa not paleo
Thanks, Branko, I was pretty sure it wasn't, but if you have to have a grain, quinoa's probably better than most due to its protein content. The seed/grain line is rather hard to figure so...

This is where a Kindle comes in very handy--hundreds of books, magazine, blogs at my fingertips, for very little weight penalty--6 oz. Battery life lasts a long time if the wireless is turned off,...

Montbell Outpace Parka
The Outpace Parka is a decent jacket, but it has some design details that could be better. It sheds rain really well. It is pretty light and packable. Its breathability seems to be fairly good, alth...
