Two-person stealth camping?
Ok, I often stealth camp on bike tours, almost always in legal spots, but it pays to keep a low profile when you're carrying all your stuff with you. Now I'm traveling with my girlfriend. W...

Toe Socks +1
Smartwool Toe Socks last forever (the PHD versions are 40% nylon, 60% wool) and they eliminate blisters. Takes an extra minute to put them on, but worth it IMO.

Trail Dog of Any Size.
My second cousin in Burlington goes backpacking and camping with his girlfriend's chihuaua. This dog redefined stereotypes for me. It runs 6 miles a day and backpacks any length of time and ...

Quotas

I'm no good at sewing
It's new in the sense that I can't find anything of similar weight at this price range available. It's lighter than a Grand Trunk Nano 7 and has a good weight limit for the.. err, weigh...
