Myth #3 caveat
I was in the San Juans the first week of June in 1977. If God had not ordained my legs to grow together at the waist I fear I'd still be sinking into that snow... My sense is that there may ...

Mountain Laurel Designs 850 ml Cup
Perfect because it does what the advertisement says it will do. It holds enough water to reconstitute your freeze dried food, and your hot drink. Boil the water for both, pour whatever is needed for t...
