My Locale Colorado Rockies
About Me I'm 45 years old, 6'4" and 195 lbs. I've backpacked in the Colorado Rockies, the Wasatch and Uinta mountains, and in Zions National Park. I mountain bike in the Colorado Rockies. I've kayaked in Yellowstone and on Flaming Gorge, and rafted the Green, Colorado and Snake rivers. My trips are usually a week long or less. I love to hike wherever I can. I'm an Assistant Scout Master and I'm often out with the Scouts. My immediate goal is to thru-hike the Colorado trail. I've lived in Utah, Ohio, Illinois, Argentina, California, and Colorado.

Re: Re: 1lb Survival/First Aid kit for scrutiny
I also carry the matches and trick candles, and Esbit tabs. I use a permanent match instead of a lighter. A Spark-Lite is used to light all of my stoves (Esbit, alcohol, and propane). I also carry ...

Re: Steel vs Cu
Thanks Summit, I hadn't realized that the Laerdal barrier was so small and light. I will have to add it to my kit.

TV, Internet trump the great outdoors
I thought others might find this link interesting, though a little disheartening. TV, Internet trump the great outdoors. It's a CNET article about a Nature Conservancy study.

I haven't tried this but, on the Adventure Medical Kits site under Weiss Advice they tell how to make a one way mouth to mouth breathing barrier out of an exam glove. This might save you from havin...

Re: groceries for ten days in the Pasayten
Love the picture but, I'm having a hard time making out what food you're taking. Could you make a list? Nothing fancy. No need to break it out by meal, etc.

Re: Re: Chocolate and backpacking?
Sorry David, I forgot that you are vegan. I could be wrong but, I don't think that instant chocolate pudding has milk in it. It is largely starch as I recall. However, the directions do say to add ...

Re: Chocolate and backpacking?
For the chocolate fix there is Nutella in a Coghlan's squeeze tube. Instant chocolate pudding is also great. Mrs. May's or MarebluNaturals Cashew Crunch are both really good.
