    Saturday, September 8, 2018 One hell of a day between the rain and having to give up my best friend for the last 13 years. Years ago, I would stop by the Chester County SPCA on a regular basis, to check out the dogs just waiting for the right one… At the time I was done with small yappy dogs for a while and wanted a large dog that would be trainable. I am not into pit bulls or weird mixes, in fact I am just a little picky. One day I stopped in after work and there was Rugby, at the time he was a…

  • Quote from odd man out: “in our area we can get dehydrated soup vegetables. They are minced very small. I have a bag and will throw a couple of Tsps in just about any meal. They are a Dutch product in the import section. It helps that I live in the center of the largest Dutch imigrant community in the US. ” Folks on the other blog would throw this back at me... How many Kcal is that? Serious don't answer that. Anyone can use a Ginzu knife and make tiny veggies and stick them on a drying rack I s…

  • Folks the Andre disappeared years ago. But some troops still use them as they still work. Common features Bathtub floor, vents thick guy strings. No seam seal needed. Double walls.

  • Quote from Astro: “Quote from Wise Old Owl: “Quote from LIhikers: “From time to time Kathy and I talk about getting a 4 season, winter tent as we usually get out 2 or 3 times a winter. The reality is that our Sierra Designs 3 season tent works OK because we're probably not going to be out in a big snow storm due to driving distance. The times we've been caught in light snow it hasn't been a problem. I can't justify to myself spending hundreds of dollars on something I don't need or want. Maybe s…

    Quote from Drybones: “One of the advantages of hammocks, if it's raining you just go to the end of the tarp and let loose...don't even have to put your shoes on. ” FYI - the software ssssssuccccckkkkkkth it avoids two thumbs up!

  • Quote from LIhikers: “Quote from Traffic Jam: “I love lemon juice in my Mac and cheese. Sounds weird but it’s good. ” Lemon juice, now there's something I never even thought about bringing.It sounds like a good idea! ” Dont forget - those that cannot do Cow Milk - use goat dried powder instead posted on the first page. Easy to digest. Lemon Juice packets are abundant now. Wawa, Starbucks etc. Dehydrated Broccoli is cut very small into pieces no bigger than a penny.

  • Quote from mass.pilot: “Kinda heavy isn't it? ” Well gape at this link....6.5lbs trail weight spread among two people? outdoorgearlab.com/topics/camp…hiking/best-4-season-tent

  • Quote from max.patch: “thanks for posting, woo -- but i'm gonna judge. the tent in the video is a 3 person and weighs 7.5 pounds. i checked the 2 person -- it weighs 5.8 pounds. no thanks. the backpacking first tent i bought back in the mid 70's was a eureka timberline that weighed in at 7.1 pounds. the next tent i bought weighed 2.75 pounds. i ain't goin back. ” This isn't for you and me. This is a 4 season for serious backpackers - if there are any left. Its a palace for two and cramped for th…

  • Quote from Traffic Jam: “I love lemon juice in my Mac and cheese. Sounds weird but it’s good. ” No doubt adds a refreshing kick - I like to take WAWA lemon packs of real lemon that was destined to go into Tea, and put it in my half and half Ice Tea w/ Lemonaid.

  • Don't judge, this is unusual and different SnugPak Scorpion 3 Tent in Olive. It holds up in 50+ MPH winds and rain. youtube.com/watch?v=7GKLeOZYKpQ

  • Quote from LDog: “I carry some good macaroni, King Flour brand powdered cheddar cheese, Nido and olive oil. I boil the macaroni till it's softened, but still not al dente. I pour off most of the water, add olive oil, sprinkle cheese in while stirring, add Nido the same way, add some parsley, salt and pepper, and put the pot in it's cozy for five minutes. Stir and I've got a nice smooth Mac 'n' cheese. If I have some good jerky, I might add it in early in the process. ” Thanks for the post!
