Tiny houses
I bought the plans for a Tumbleweed Whidbey, 461 sf. I'm listing my condo for sale on Tuesday and then hope to be able to afford a tiny plot to build my tiny house from the proceeds. I, too, ...

Does anyone NOT Use a Cozy for Freeaer Bag Cooking?
You could find out for yourself at home by making the same thing in two FB's, then add the hot water to each, wrap one in what you would use on the trail (clothes, etc.) and drop one into your ...

Sarah's recipe for Cranberry Macadamia Cereal Bars
I've probably made this recipe 20 times at least since Sarah first printed it. I, too, use walnuts, because they're what I have. I also double the walnuts and craisins in the recipe. I e...

Anything but mushrooms
Is that the same mycological society that has a "Survivor's Dinner" every year? I'm pretty sure I'm going to be sick that day, whatever it is, so won't be able to make it.

Tater Tuesday! Pepperoni Pizza
I didn't get to try this until today. I didn't have pepperoni, so I got to try the freeze-dried sausage from Packit Gourmet that I recently bought. It worked great! I hydrated the sausag...

Tater testing
Sarah - your recipes are next on my test list. I can only eat so many spuds in a day. I may have already tried them in the past, but I need to make them again to be sure. And yes, I don't l...

Tater Tuesday
I wondered what happened to last Tuesday. I thought maybe I was in a time warp. I also even considered trying to come up with something myself, but I was in Whoville at the foot of Lichtenberg Mt...

Botach Tactical Customer Service
I had a similar experience to David's. They sent the inferior space blankets, rather than the correct order, took forever to send a return UPS shipping label, and only yesterday admitted to recei...

Boomer's Guide to Lightweight Backpacking by Carol Corbridge
I was very disappointed in this book. Luckily, I didn't buy it but had checked it out from the library. For starters, the book is in major need of copy editing. There are lots of awkward sent...

Backpacking Light Merino UL Pants
These do everything BPL promised - provide comfortable warmth without being bulky. I've worn them under non-winter hiking pants all winter, and they've extended the comfort range down to 7 de...

Golite Paradox pants
I'm not sure whether to review these in raingear or softshell clothing, because they're both. They are all-day pants, rather than rain pants to pull on over hiking pants and are made of a fab...
