Re: Sevylor Colorado canoe

I just got my wife a Sevylor Rio for Christmas and a kayak paddle since she will be done with school in the spring. Then she can come with my daughter and I on our trips. http://www.kangarootentcity.com.au/welcome/images/SevylorRioSinglePersonCanoe2010.jpg This vid shows a lot about the Rio and the ...

Re: NOAA local weather link.

I use Wisdom-Soft Screen Hunter 5.1. It's free and seems to work real well for getting screen shots.

NOAA local weather link.

I use this NOAA link any time I head out into the wilderness. Our local TV news does a very poor job of mountain forecasting. And in the Cascades and Olympic Mountains the weather will be very different according to altitude, which side or region. In the upper left corner you just type in your zip. ...

Re: New "lighter"

I may have to try one now that I know what they look like. It would be cool to make one out of titanium. Or even out of rifle round brass. It would look like a cartridge except the upper half would slide off revealing the wick and flint wheel. A few 50 cal ones would be great gifts.

Re: New "lighter"

The blazer did light with a fire steel spark, the moisture did not effect the gas flow. I always carry a fire steel anyway when out in the wilds. When it could mean my life I always have three separate fire sources. Just my survival knife alone has water proof matches and a fire steel with magnesium...

Re: New "lighter"

I did get my Blazer wet last week up in the mountains and it would not light. The moisture most likely shorted out the air gap for the piezo. So I will make a cap for the front of it and make sure I have my fire steel with me. The gas still flowed out fine but the piezo is very moisture sensitive. I...

Re: Tool you may not know about

It is an easy way to make a square hole vs using a saw and trying to make a clean corner. Or worse yet trying to get scissors or tin snips lined up straight to make a small cut. You can do a job much faster but do it right and have it look clean.
