Strumstick

Light Instruments
I have a Yamaha GL-1 Guitarlele and it plays reasonably well. My son in law can make it sound better than I can make my full size guitar sound. Even though it is small and fairly light it is stil...

Weight and cost

Eureka Spitfire 2
The Spitfire 1 and 2 are a great tents IMO. The 2 person one can be found at $130 and I like it better than many much more expensive tents. Weight, quality, and design are all pretty good and pri...

I was surprised that 3.5 pounds is called light and that the large stuff sack is compared to a small sleeping bag in the video. It looks pretty big and sounds pretty heavy to me. Is it really sma...

Full of hot air
