Your boy hits teen years. Oh, it gets me every time I look back and see him so tiny, and now!! I see my oldest at 16 now, and look at his 4 year old brother and ask "where did the time go?"

Silicone cups are the best! They are my favorite for what I call "faux baking" ;-) http://www.trailcooking.com/fauxbaker/

Re: Sriracha warning too all!!
Lol!! Anyhow, just so you know, Sriracha doesn't go bad easily - you have to really try for that to happen. You can carry a bottle - even in mega hot temperatures.

Re: Cream Cheese Singles
The regular packets carry well for 1-2 days :-) Get the foil ones if you can - and freeze them before you head out :-)

Recreational Equipment, Inc. (REI)
Long time REI customer, but do I shop there as much these days? No. What changed me was the very obvious shift in the Seattle area stores. A couple years ago many of the older experienced employees d...
