Garmin ETrex

Santa Dropped a Garmin ETrex down the chimney for me last night. It about the size of a pack of cigs and weighs just a few Oz. Santa also included the 12vt adapter, vehicle mount and carrying case. It has a lot of cool functions and I can download detailed maps off the net for it. Garmin has improve...

Mini butane refills

I ran across these at a sporting goods store for $3.49. It looks likes a good idea to be able to refill your butane lighters and not have to bring a full sized canister along with you. At least on an extended pack/canoe trip. I immediately started thinking about micro butane stove ideas. :o http://i...

Re: Sevylor Colorado canoe

The ingredients are very similar however the processing and formulations can affect how well the absorb. I did by an amino mix at GNC and found out it had sucralose after opening it. I consider my continued use of it as an efficient management but could end up with problems if I stop. So it can't be...

Re: Sevylor Colorado canoe

Topic migration is perfectly OK with me. Sudden, any searches on the net about amino acid supplements will give you some good start info. I used a joint building powder that's about $11 a can which is just under a months supply. It mixes in juice to cover the off flavor. The powder is hydrolyzed gel...

Re: Sevylor Colorado canoe

I had a degenerative L4,5 disk but I had several spinal steroid epidurals over two years. I also started using high doses of multi-spectrum amino acids and the back has been doing great for almost two years now. Our joints will heal and regenerate but we have to give them the building blocks. Age an...

Re: Kettle (Volcano) Stoves

I have made several mods to my Ghillie kettle. Each time I have taken it out on a hike or canoe trip I come up with another mod for it. It has worked great so far and was a good investment especially for winter hiking and snow shoeing. It's easier to post a link to a off the grid/survival forum I mo...
