Re: Aluminum mugs by IMUSA

No stubs, just cut it off. I use an aluminum pot gripper I've carried for decades.

Re: Aluminum mugs by IMUSA

I cut the handle off my IMUSA mug. No working the rivets that way. It packs better too!

Re: Another tent...Model?

I have this same tent. I bought it in the late 70's or early 80's as a cheaper option to the Sierra Designs model. I have used it all over in all conditions and besides needing to stake it it's a great little tent. I THINK it was sold as a bicycle camping tent but don't remember. Mine has a cream an...

Re: TeePee

Some have a double wall , 4' high the entire inside perimiter. The wall gets stuffed with dried grass for insulation in cold weather. As I understand it the "Tipi liner" should be at least 5-6' tall. The liner directs breezes up towards the smokehole and helps with keeping the interior smoke free. ...

Re: TeePee

I've always wanted to own and camp in a Tipi, but the poles threw me off. You would have to be pretty dedicated to lug all those around. Some build special racks for their cars to support the poles. Then the erection and take down is a job. I sure wouldn't want to do it on a daily basis! Best for a ...

Camping in the city

Lights went out yesterday. There was a blown transformer and a fire somewhere near. Weather was OK, we weren't concerned about freezing. No TV or computer so I settled down with a good book to wait it out. ("A Speck on the Sea" by William Longyard, about epic trans oceanic voyages in small craft). A...

Re: Down or Synthetic?

I have two bags for different seasons. A NorthFace synthetic that weighs 2# and some oz's and will take me down to 40 degrees maybe 30 if I pile all my clothes on. I use this one spring, summer and fall. Compresses down to a football. I bought this from Sierra Trading Post several years ago for 60 b...

Re: Rare find for the day!Frostline Down Bag!

I've decided great used finds on backpacking gear is dependent on your location. Living in Seattle, you are just lucky. Here in the Midwest all I see is big, heavy cook kits (usually missing pieces), off brand worn out heavy car camping tents (again usually missing pieces), and heavy (Coleman and it...
