Re: Coffee

Alright, ok, there's lots of ways to make coffee, but I'll bet you've never heard of this ultra, ultralight method before: You've probably heard of MRE's - the prepackaged food they have in the military. There are little packets of instant coffee inside, and I remember back in Desert Storm coming ac...

Hmmm...maybe I should corner the market in owl pellets and save up for my stove building projects! The other great thing about the Escarpment area is that when y...

Exciting owl puke from my last hike!

I've read about regurgitated owl pellets, and I finally found some in the woods. The hike was at Mt. Nemo in Burlington, On., which is part of the Niagara Escarpment. My daughter and I had scrambled down the cliff and were working our way along the bottom, so the pellets showed up at eye level. Migh...

I was a Jarhead about 20 years ago, then spent 13 years in an iron foundry. After that turned sour, I went to work ...
