Re: CountyComm Maratac AAA Copper flashlight review.

Looks like now they have a solid brass version of this light as well, and have upgraded the LED, plus it's 3 mode :) Might have to pick one or two up as a backup EDC light, or to put in a PSK.

Re: 2013/2014 ZS winter MBO chat thread.

My 6yr old can't wait to ten...

Gorgeous sunrise!! effing early morning duck hunters wrecking a perfectly good sleep! LOL! The same thing happens on my annual chix fishing trip. The first year, I seriously wondered what the heck was going on. Nice camp set-up. I'm looking forward to that ruck set-up report. Ditto Woods's question...

Cool beans. I basically treated the filter and bags per the instructions printed on the Sawyer bags, then once dry put the filter back in the ziploc and it's stored in my bag right now. I've read about chilling/freezing others like the MSR's and Katadyn's . Going to research the failure incidents as...

Re: BC_Slider's 2013/2014 Winter ZS MBO Entry-UPDATED(Pic He

I got one of the water filters but given the cold never had a chance to field test it. So what did yea think about it? They blow when it's cold. Had to heat mine in a pan of water when camping in the cold. The membrane is small and become very dense when near freezing. I had mine in my pocket and t...

Re: -:[Winter MBO Entry]:-

Thanks for the post! We too found that even shortish walk with 50-60lbs for those of us that dont do it regularly is a struggle. Good to see some more hammock sheltering, I see it's a grand trunk. Any mods and what'd he use for insulation from CBS(cold butt syndrome)? I do like that tent !

Thorough post sir! I love seeing environments that are vastly different than ours here in the deep south in a MBO setting. Also, the vid is a nice touch :)

Thanks Medic73, exactly and my friend ordered the ENO bugnet, I hope to make my own soon since the mozzies are coming out and future trips will make them essential for a good nights sleep. Thanks for the comments, reminds me of those meme's with outdoor scenes and "therapy" LOL..

You got a fire going but used alcohol stove for meal? Wasn't that a waste of fuel? Do the canteens ride better on the top strap than on the bottom one? Yep, got the fire going and we did heat some water for coffee and tea , as for wasting fuel, we each had 8oz on us which was fortunate. I say that ...

Are those the blue tarps for hammocks? Very cool! Nah, just saw Medic73's reply but wanted to let you know that they are indeed the Equip travel hammocks from Wal Mart. $25 and perfect for those new to hammock camping including my friend and I. We did take the precautionary step of replacing the or...
