No backpacking this weekend
I'm going to rent a jacked up truck and run over little bunny wabbits in the desert. WOO-HOO!!! Maybe I'll pull an Ed Abbey and fire beer bottles out the window while I'm at it. The ...

Ditto on the MH Canyon shirt
I have not modified mine because I like it's ability to give great sun protection (can't stand sun screen). This shirt has mesh in all the right places too.

That has to be a POS retail display item
I'd guess it is supposed to show all the tools offered.

Arc'Teryx Gamma LT pants
These are the only softshell pants I've owned but I've been really happy with them. I've worn them in the mountains in July and snowshoeing in January and they work well everywhere.

Mary Jane's Farm Sante Fe Pasta
I have the odd problem of losing my appetite when backpacking. I used to stare at my selection of freeze dried meals (Mountain House or BP Pantry) and home dehydrated selections and wonder what wo...

MSR Titan Kettle
My herd of Ti pots has grown to 4. I have this MSR, two Snow Peaks and a Vargo. It is among the lightest Ti pots, is well finished, and has good capacity. It is quite a bit lighter than the Snow Pe...

Vargo Ti-Lite Titanium Mug

Brunton Crux
Light, compact, obvious quality of build. I find I need to simmer most Freeze-Dried meals when I'm at or above 10,000 feet. The wide burner and excellent burner control do this better than the rath...
