Re: Easing the pain of the GG Nightlight...
My baby brother, an MD, told me the cause for sleeping pain on closed cell foam pads is having birthdays. Easy for him to say. The little twerp is only 45.

Bathtub floor info
It was worth getting my information wrong just to be directed to the blog about bathtub floors. Thanks, Ron!

I thought it had a floor, too, until I looked at the comparison page: http://www.sixmoondesigns.com/products/ShelterCompare.asp Maybe what we're seeing is the netting tucked under a sleepin...

Ron Moak's new Refuge tarptent
I noticed SixMoonDesigns.com has a new "Refuge" tarptent on sale for a "limited time only" for $200. Similar to the LunarDuo, but no floor, only one entrance, and slightly narr...

Rehydrating chicken success
Well, blow me down. It actually worked. Last night I dehydrated my little foil pouch of chicken on a cookie sheet on the lowest setting of the oven. It only took 1.5 hours. Today I brought it t...

Dehydrating chicken
I wasn't sure if dehydrating chicken would make it tough, but drying hamburger in the oven on a cookie sheet has worked well, so I'll give the ol' bird a try. Hope you adjust to yo...

Chicken Ranch taters
Since I test recipes before I take them or praise them, and there's no time like the present, I just made this. I did have to make a few substitutions. No ranch dip mix, so I used strogan...

I had a similar experience to David's. They sent the inferior space blankets, rather than the correct order, took forever to send a return UPS shipping label, and only yesterday admitted to recei...

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...
