re: REI
Matt, I've bought something at the store, then raced home and placed an online order before the computer caught on. I even used to be able to place two different online orders (log out, then lo...

Beeswax
I love it, Dan. I've tried my hand at making candles, and I agree with everything you wrote about beeswax. As a sort of thread drift (which you know I like to do), you, Ken, and I (+ others)...

Re: Why? if it ain't broke....
Well, to me the Merrell insole IS broke, right outa the box--while being very light, it doesn't provide much cushion at all. So I did hit REI yesterday to see what they have. They have a cool m...

re: First trip out west

That ain't no stinkin' "firepot"

Re: Relax-A-Fire Firestarters
After reading your post last night, Ken, I went to the mail box and there they were. Thanks very much, Gretchen. So I took one to my chiminea, popped a micro-brew, and did a burn of a full disk. Th...

Hilleberg Akto
I agree that the Akto is a very strong and high quality 4-season solo tent. But I must add an anecdote to illustrate the what I feel is the tent's main weakness. In early October of '06 we wer...
