Re: Re: Tarp Guylines
Doug, I have read that article as well and thought it was a good idea. Have you had the opportunity to make adjustments once set up? I wonder if you can just take one end and pull the line to bri...

Re: Tarp Guylines
I use an Oware 10’x10’ flat tarp with a customized extra guy loop located in the center of the ridgeline. Even though it may be a little bigger than some would use, I find it extremely versatil...

Re: Re: Re: Re: Bugs and tarping
I have tried Tinny's bug bag and it is huge. Plenty of room to wiggle. I was shipped a white one from him and believe a black one would have been better. Easy to work with. I open it up and put ...

Trangia Simmering
I use a Trangia with the Clikstand quite a bit. About the only time I do not is when I need to melt snow, and then I too use the Brunton Optimus Nova (changed from the MSR Whisperlite for stability...

Having little to do with the individual other than purchasing and reading his books, based on what I have read from his books and in various posts, it does seem that Ray is somewhat a Bohemian. Mea...

Camp shoes
I like the Speedo Surf Walkers, but they enclose the foot so kind of defeats (or is that de feets) the desire of air flow. Keen Newport sandals have a rounded front to cover the toes in case you a...

Photon Light Proton Personal Flashlight
I would give the Proton a 4 out of 5 score primarily because of its high cost ($69). It is an excellent light if you need to do any emergency signaling at night or if you need a high intensity beam fo...

Six Moon Designs Lunar Solo
I like the simplicity in the concept of the design. It is a combination of bivy sack and single wall tent with plenty of room that weighs in at 25 ounces. The bathtub floor and netting along the floor...

GoLite Breeze
I have to say this is not the worst pack I ever had, but close to it. I do like the simplicity, but the straps are just killer. With 18 pounds I can carry on one shoulder and switch sides, but when ...

I think this stove is the next generation of things to come. With a collapsible burner head, it folds over for 3.1 ounces of ultimate compact ability. The oversized burner head offers a better burn an...
