Re: Slippery tent
When I bought my Henry Shires Tarptent I had the same problem, so I ran a few beads of seam sealer the length of the floor. No more problems.

Re: Hiker Trail Name
Whenever I sign a trail register I use both my given name and my trail name. If I need to be found it depends on who's looking as to what name the authorities will search out. My parents don...

Re: Re: Re: Re: Heineken stove hazards?
Has anyone tried to remove the lining with steel wool? How difficult of a prospect is it? I don't want to start something that I might not be able to finish or ruin the can.

Re:Why Backpacking?
Just when I was looking for some glib answer I get to Shawn's post (well put by the way). The thing about the question is there is no wrong answer. My counter question is why not? Why NASCAR an...

Re: What's the lightest inflatable out there?

Love this stove
I made one of these just two days ago and found that at least under optimal conditions (my kitchen, 70 degrees, etc.) this stove out performed my pepsi stove hands down. I had 8 ounces of cold wate...

Mountain House Lasagna with Meat Sauce
When I grab a freeze dried dinner for an overnighter, the MH lasagna is my number one choice. I liked it when I started in '88 and still like it today.

Tarptent Squall
I purchased my Tarptent Squall in 2004 and now consider it my main shelter when I am carrying a tent. Henry Shires was a pleasure to deal with and very helpful. The squall has served me well from my b...
