Adventure: #70 Don Robinson State Park





Finally got around to hitting one of the newer state parks in Missouri, Don Robinson State Park. It has two trails for a total of about 7 miles. Both are uniquely different trails.  Well worth the stop. Get there early as there is limited parking.

Gear: #54 Will a 77 Inch Pad Fit in a MSR Hubba Hubba NX





Answer to a question from a viewer on if a 77 inch pad will fit into the MSR Hubba Hubba NX.  The short answer is yes. I thought I had a 72" NeoAir XTherm but it is the Large so it is 77 inches long.

Adventure: #69 Babler State Park





I was out on a dayhike with my kids at Babler State Park. I came across a couple trees I was able to ID.  Shot a quick vid with a bit of information. This is a great state park if you have a chance to visit.

Food: #9 Dehydrated Cauliflower





Cauliflower is a good substitute for rice and is a common ingredient in the Paleo and Keto diets. I was curious to know how well riced cauliflower would dehydrate as an option for some backpacking meals.

Adventure: #68 Cuivre River State Park Day Hike





Took a quick hike around Lake Lincoln out at Cuivre River State Park.  Tested out the cardboard frame sheet and did a bit of tree identification. It was nice to be on the trail again.

Gear: #53 Making a Strop





A sharp knife is a useful tool. There a quite a few ways to get it sharp. However, once it is sharp a strop add that extra fineness to the blade.  I figured it was time to get one. They are quite easy to make and use.

Gear: #52 Cheap Framesheet





The LA Police Gear 3 day pack is a bit floppy in the back. With only a sheet of foam to give it any form.  I made a cheap frame sheet to stiffen it up and make it carry better.
