Re: stealth camping does not always mean illegal
Ditto Paul. Either Ray Jardine coined the term, or that was the first time I ever heard it. In that context, which I'm going to assume was the "original" one, it meant cooking/eati...

Re: Re: Re: Good pot cozy video...also not bringing FBC food to the boil.
"Chilly Mac is probably a good tester for you US people." Do tell, what would be the equivalent from your side of the globe? Personally I don't like the traditional "Ameri...

Re: Good pot cozy video...also not bringing FBC food to the boil.
I had heard and more or less followed the "before-boiling" advice. If it is genuinely fully-dehydrated pre-finished food I think you don't need heat at all - it a all a question of ti...

Re: Re: Emigrant Wilderness and Mosquitos

Re: Stairways of San Francisco - 568 Stairways in 4 Days
Wow. I have heard about complex route planning, but this is the first real one I have heard of mathematically classifiable as NP-complete. With 568 nodes it would probably take a super-computer day...

Re: Gear suggestions
