Cricket, Skyscape, Hexamid Solo
I'd love to see a side by side comparison of the MLD Cricket, the SMD Skyscape (now just pictures until July), and the Zpacks Hexamid Solo tent (with the net flooring). Brad - maybe you could ...

Tiny house building fees
You're scaring me, Brian. I didn't realize the permit fees were so astronomical. I mailed my plans to a builder today to get a price estimate. We'll see what he says. I've als...

Taco Taters
Thanks for keeping this going, Teresa. I just made this for a late lunch. Besides being simple, it tastes very good. It also lends itself to any sort of personal complexity you might want. Sinc...

I just got back from a trip to Oregon visiting my son, and my instaflator and Vargo Y ti-stakes were in my mailbox from Marc. So in case you're wondering, he's great to work with and order...

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.

Yes! I hope he threw them on the floor and walls if you ever tried to feed him any, as I predicted before he was born!

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...
