Cameras for Backpacking

I have been looking for a small lightweight camera with about 15X optical zoom, GPS, movies for You Tube and makes high quality individual digital images, ideally in RAW format. I would also like to be able to do HDR, maybe, flash fill for those dark ambient light hiker huts, and be able to successf...

Re: Introducing CJD

I received my order, today. I have my lovely Vargo "Sierra 750" cookware. I have my little backpack strap Suunto compass. I, now, have two Spark-Lites, plain and improved. The improved Spark-Lite has what appears to be a small allen key fastener to replace the lighter flint. I don't have a small all...

Re: Introducing CJD

I went to http://www.fourseasonssurvival.com/Campsite_c_241.html

I had to login. They require email, home address, telephone.

For all that, they had nothing in their other categories except "Select a subcategory".

Re: Introducing CJD

Hmm... This thread seems to be about thieves. For a patent claim, it is only necessary to show prior design. I would put in the claim. There are two patent offices, one on the East coast and one on the West coast. Why? People do purchase these products. Not only that, they are selling your stove des...

Re: Introducing CJD

I agree. I only lack my much improved SparkLite and Vargo 750 Sierra. I was looking around online. I found both at one place: http://www.survivalresources.com/Products/Firestarter.html Check it out. They have a brass improved Sparklite, an aluminum improved Sparklite and the original plastic Sparkli...

It is also very much wat...

Re: Quilt prototype

I like all the photos. Nice link.

Are those snowfields glaciers?

If so, it isn't simply a walk-up.

Re: Quilt prototype

The Blackfeet reservation allows fishing.

Re: You know you're an ultraliter when . . .

I have a REI LED Trail Cap. It lights up the world on hi-beam. No more headlamps, for me. I had the same revelation as this thread, when I realised I really do not need a tent. I had carried a tarp in Scouts, but I was convinced by merchandizing I needed a tent. I had tents I liked, two entrances - ...
