Re: has he lost his mind or is he trying to go out a business?

This guy is flat out full of himself and also the brown, stinking mushy stuff. If I didn't have such contempt, I'd feel sorry for him. It's evident he is setting his "cult" up and they can't see it, too much koolaide. One basic tenet of salesmanship is to suggest the customer "can't afford it". They...

Re: Cotrail tarptent

Well any tent can be punctured from ground litter. I think silnylon is as strong as ripstop, but not tafetta. Before pitching I always check the ground, scrape around with my foot and even lay down to get the feel of any slope. As to the innie/outie thing there is always a controversy about that. To...

Re: Cotrail tarptent

R U referring to the Contrail by Shires? I bought one this winter but haven't used it yet. I plan on carrying a plastic "groundsheet" but I put mine inside, not on the ground. I'm an "innie" as opposed to an "outie". I consider the plastic last resort protection for me and my bag against water seepa...

Re: CAUTION! "Use of Fiberglass Wick" CAUTION!

Tiny is an idiot, plain and simple. Fortunately for him he keeps a group of sycophants around who thinks he can do no wrong. Grandpa used to say, "Them that don't listen got to feel." THINK ABOUT IT. I wonder if, after a good flaming, the glass fibers melt and lay down? Back when I did high work we ...

Re: cooking rice

I have yet to try this but have given it strong consideration... Is it worth the time and effort in the long run, concerning cooking time and quality... Also, I just thought of the availibility of par-cooked rice...? I suppose I'll look into it later tonight(I work at a restaurant). I can tell the ...

Re: thru hike AT (getting ready)

Go to www. whiteblatze.net everthing you need to know I've been hanging around at WB this past winter. True, there's a lot of info there. There are also a bunch of brow beating ultralight axxholes who will take every chance to step on your fingers if you disagree with them. Fortunately, I have a ra...

Re: cooking rice

I used to use instant rice but really don't like the texture. I switched to cooking the rice at home and then dehydrating it. Rehydrated, it tastes very close and has a nutty flavor. No need to rinse it the second time around.

Re: Just A Little Reminder..

Sorry I'm don't know how to fix it. It's a animated gif. I originally linked it to the email in my hotmail acct but I guess that only works for a short while.

Then I uploaded it to my Imagecave acct but they don't do gifs.

Does anyone know how I can display an animated gif here?
