Re: AT Thru-Hike Gear List Help

This reply will be in two parts. Trapping and hunting is (realistically) going to be a "no" while you're on the trail. I would plan to carry all the food you'll be eating on trail. The amount of food you'll carry will depend on a few things, such as how much you normally eat, and how long you will b...

Re: TSA approved pocket knives?

http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/5179D5DEiJL.jpg Something like this or this might fit the bill. These, you will note, will need to be ground down a few cm, but they have handles big enough to really hold onto, unlike the micro ones with the cute bell. Just my 2 cents for anyone looking for an...

TrackingPoint "Intelligent" Digital Scope

Sorry if there's already a thread on this, and I just have weak search-fu. This is a digital scope that only fires when you're lined up with a predetermined target point. The video does a good job of explaining and demo-ing how it works. What do people think? http://www.thefirearmblog.com/blog/2012/...

Re: Best Bets for Food: More Calories, Less Hassle

OK, I'll play. One of the things I like to make for backpacking is homemade larabars. For taste, we generally use 1 cup almonds, 1 cup dates, and 1/4 cup apricots, all food processored up and pressed into bars. If we substitute both fruit out for raisins for cost effectiveness, a batch with ingredie...

Re: Poll: Which Zombie Khukuri would you buy?

First, have you tried holding mock-ups of those upside down, because they don't look too comfy that way, and I don't imagine the saw would be very useful oriented towards the back of your hand unless you're cutting up into something? Unless they're really just decorative, which is fine, but not my p...

Interesting setup! I thought I'd bounce a few things off you about your cooking setup. You list the hobo stove and the kettle, but do you have anything to cook in / eat in / eat out of? I don't know if you just didn't list them, but bowl/cup/spoon(spork?)/pot/etc. will make the hobo stove and the ke...

Re: ZS collaborative folding blade recommendation thread

I've been EDCing a Spyderco Tenacious for a year now, and really like it. I tried out the Kershaw Chill for a while, but really like the ability to not *flick* the knife open, so it seems more non-threatening. It fits great in my hand, the g-10 is solid, and the bulk of it in my pocket is very reass...

Re: I'm Making Hard Cider!!

Just a word to the wise, it won't be a sweet apple cider! Most yeasts ferment out pretty dry, which is to say it turns essentially all of the sugar into alcohol (and CO2), which in turn means there won't be much sugar left to taste. Don't be surprised if it's quite tart, and don't be discouraged if ...

I think this is a really good point.
