Re: MDBB > MS

Re: Re: Batteries
I would think a good option for a thru-hiker might be the Steripen Freedom - 2.6 oz weight and USB rechargeable battery. If you are carrying other electronic devices which are USB-chargeable (camer...

Re: Taste of the Wild

Re: Re: How to hike with a dog and trekking poles?
