DIY Musical Instruments
I have been tinkering with building and playing stick dulcimers that I may carry on some backpacking trips and bicycle tours. I build a couple pretty normal copies of the DGD Mc Nally Strumstick. ...

Idaho
Thanks for the info. I hope to see a fair amount of back country on this route. There are optional single track sections that are reportedly several days long and fairly remote. I rode through...

Bear Canjo

open back banjo?
What do they weigh? My impression was that even open back models were pretty heavy. The ones I have seen were definitely over 5 pounds and probably by quite a bit. I see 10 pound banjos listed a...

Canjo
Canjos look like fun. One can be made pretty much for free with a little scrounging. They can also be purchased pretty cheaply. I have built a couple strumsticks and may build a canjo next just ...

Thermarest Neo-Air
I love my NeoAir (size regular). It is light, comfy, and packs small. I agree that for the price a patch kit should be included, but I don't miss the stuff sack. I have been using a ziploc ba...
