WTB - inexpensive tenkara setup for a co-worker
You might watch steepandcheap.com. I got a Wetfly Tenkara package off there for $115. Probably easiest to go to sacalerts.com, and set up an alert to come to your phone with the keyword "tenka...

Millennials and the Backcountry
Geez, I don't even know what a Millennials. But I'm glad the only the the Boy Scouts indoctrinated me into was a love of the outdoors, and goal-setting. I do know a shocking number of paren...

Trail Bike Recommendation Please
Craigslist is your friend. Brand name hard tail with good components. If you were closer, I'd make you a great deal on a Jamis 650B, since the wife let me bring home a Scott Genius 740 from San...

Turkey Bag Cooking vs. Philmont
I'd just say no to Philmont if it's that big a deal. If the only way you can do a 10 day wilderness trek is by having Philmont cater it, I think you're doing your boys a huge disservice...

My final frontier: Pack and Tent - suggestions?
My Conduit gets used 30 times for every one time my Catalyst gets used. The Catalyst is just too big most of the time. And I probably use my GG Gorilla more than my Conduit, just depends on how rou...

Why does America lose its head over 'terror' but ignore its daily gun deaths?
500+ people killed daily by hospital / doctor errors. Why don't we go for the greater good, and focus on that? And gun control might get farther if it didn't focus on punishing the law-a...

Knee injury - how to get back on the trail quickly?
Had part of my meniscus removed, and something done for a chondral defect, back in January. Still trying to get back. The exercises are pretty simple, but when I did them religiously, I had less pa...

Kelty 50th Anniversary pack

Gerber Mini Paraframe Knife
I've carried one of these for a few years now. Sharpens well, light to carry, and cheap. In fact, I have a couple, and when I lose one in the couch, I just carry one of the others until I find it.

Pacific Outdoor Products Insul Mat Max-Thermo
Kind of heavy, but worth every ounce. Inflates with 11 big breaths, but gives you a great nights rest. No more waking up because your hip hurts, only to roll over and do it again. Deflates and packs i...
