Re: Salmon Alfredo - Trail Cooking On The Olympic Coast

Excellent! A new hiking-related video blog to subscribe to! Looks good so far, Sarah. I did make a note on the Youtube page however that you will want to increase the size of the text that you were using in the sidebar of the video as it was hard to read.

Re: Newbie from Everett, WA

I slept in one of the garden sheds on display at the Lowes Store near the Amtrak station in Everett last summer on the day I finished my thru-hike of the Pacific Northwest Trail.

Re: JB weld

After having reduced the weight of my Snowpeak 900 as much as I could (removed handles, added a titanium bail and fashioned new lid from pie tin).

Re: White Box Stove Review

I don't think anyone clarified the lack of rivets mentioned in the the original post. Bill came up with a new, cleaner design two months ago or so. The Whitebox I have is sans rivets. I know there are arguments about the slow 'bloom time' as there should be on a primarily stove building forum but as...

Re: Tarp Help.

Most importantly is how you stake the tarp out. If you've got stake outs at each point of the ridgeline, stake outs at each corner and a stake out at each midpoint on the side you should have a pretty stable pitch.

Re: So...what made you go to a lightweight stove?

Used a Whisperlite for a couple years because I didn't know lightweight stove existed. My first ultralight stove was one of the pop can types with the little screw in the top. I didn't like that you had to prime it so I next got an open top one. I then didn't like that you had to use a pot stand wit...
