Re: Three season tent recommendations?

It was ridiculously tight. Think pyramid. 4 on the ground and then 3 followed onto the gaps. As I am a large, I was on the bottom and incredibly warm. The only issue was one fellow was incredibly gassy. I've stayed in touch with 2 of them; we still laugh about it. Did a similar pyramid with over 60 ...

Re: Three season tent recommendations?

I've owned one of these (4-man) since 1984. https://eurekacamping.johnsonoutdoors.com/tents/backpacking/timberline%C2%AE-4-person-tent Mine is still going strong; we've used it three times this year. In 1988, it slept 7 men during an all night downpour. Only drawback is that it costs 2.5x more now. ...

Re: Take Shelter (2011)

I liked it. Everything said thus far is true. A man is chastised by his family, friends, neighborhood, work, etc., etc., because he wants to build a bunker, protect his loved ones, etc., etc. He doesn't have the money to do it but he keeps trying anyway. It's a slow roller but demonstrates how someo...

Re: Downloadable gun manufacturing files.

Not off-base MOAB. By lobbying I refer to influencing lawmakers/decision makers. 'Influencing the public' is an entirely different thing and often involves whimsy. Wanted to add that there are simple ways to "protest" as well that does not involve marches, bullhorns or bumper stickers. For example, ...

Re: Downloadable gun manufacturing files.

My opinion aligns with KJ4VOV. Agree too that lobby efforts are sorely needed when/where there is pressure but "educating the public" today largely means competing with those that have their own self interest in mind, meaning Online: followers and likes and such. Don't believe some guy on the intern...

Re: A quick question about MRE

One of the things I found to be much better than the MRE is fresh chicken salad on a whole wheat pita, a pinch of black pepper and a dash of an exotic mustard. Expiration dates mean nothing to the hungry. Check the food first by sight and smell. If all is well, give it a little taste. Eat a mouthfu...

Re: Archery and progressive lenses

Will you be performing the archery from a horse? Also, do you mean to say archery or bow hunting, and do you mean the periphery of the lenses or your overall peripheral vision? My first thought is with regard to your corrective lens and the target. Adjust your anchor point.

I agree with you Havoc. Good points. That said, I'd like to find a box like that (large) because of its durability (crush limits) and weight, but it is for something else altogether. Smaller units with different funding concerns and oversight can often go after specific gear they want without the ri...
