my other brother Daryll

Yes! I have seen that Black Cat catalytic heater. There is now a "junior" model I have seen at Target. It may be a great item hiking in a group where one sucker can carry that whole enchilada. I think it comes to 16 lbs with gas canister and all. Imagine that, KiddieHawk!

one more thing

one more thing, I just got a Lexan Flask from GSI. It is tough as nails and holds 1 pint of firewater. And to boot, the lid doubles as a 1-ounce shot glass.

gas heaters

Just a reminder, not to insult all y'alls intelligence, but NEVER use a propane or other gas heater inside a tent. You die. Kiddiehawk, I was wondering who is the manufacturer of your bag(s) Some companies, (Slumberjack) are notorious for over-rating thier products. I have a "20 degree" Slumberjack ...

I wanna go!!

I posted a trip to Beaver Creek, but I change my mind. We are busy that weekend, so... anyone going out on the 22-23rd? I really need a suggestion for those two days, something with filterable water. I was thinking Hells Gate, but by myself is a big no-no. I have a truck but no 4x4 :( so dont mind m...

Re: wine bladders

I dont disagree, MATT. I dont see a problem with being a wine snob. What I do want to know is what is a good vino for beef jerky and pasta.(or other typical camp food) I heard a winemaker once say that all the talk of matching wine to food is all B.S. and I should drink what tastes good. What do ya ...

wine bladders

I forgot to say that the last time I hike to Havasu there were five people in the party who brought in Bags of wine. Simply remove the bag from the box of Franzia.(hey, after hiking 11 miles Franzia aint that bad, dude.) They seem to hold up and even have a pour spout. Now, if I could only get my dr...

liquor on the trail, poker in the tent

my trailside fav's would be Amaretto and powdered Lemonade, or Cinnamon Shnapps with powdered Apple cider (hot). Then again with all the weight I save in my pack I have room for 3-4 beers. Yes beers! Now all we backpackers need is powdered wine. Wait a minute.. I might be onto something here...

Elk Alert!

Does anyone know if the so called "deer alarms" actually work? I put one on my truck for the trip to Blue Ridge and I must have hit 25 deer/elk on the way! I think I installed it backwards... OK bad joke. Real bad. So the thing is, I agree speeding is dangerous, and I recall reading that for every 1...

gps gone bad

It is my feeling that GPS units have gotten in the way of experiencing the true nature of "getting lost". I think that there is nothing more pleasurable than bieng in the backcountry, even on improved trails, when you wonder "where the heck am I". KNOW how to use maps, it is more fun and gives one a...

I belong to a group who cannot believe in the "perfect hike". I think that is THE reason we all keep hiking. Maybe we all know in the back of our minds that of all the places we have been, no place will be the same experience twice and this notion drives us to hike again, again, and again. You get t...

Should GameBoys be allowed in the backcountry?

We have all heard the argument about cell phones on the trail. Some for it, others expressively opposed. But cant the same thing be said about portable electronic devices? I have a Gameboy Advance and I know many people will scoff at the notion of playing racecar games around the campfire. But what ...

giardia threat?

I also subscribe, of course, and the article in Backpacker was informative yey not very specific to our region. SAVE for Beaver Creek, which is probably due to wild stock as Pfredricks touched on earlier. I learned in this article that the testing was done in independent labs, and some giardia and c...
