Adventure: #77 Day Hike Cuivre River State Park





Took the opportunity for Spring-like weather and day hiked out at Cuivre River State Park. Along the way I tried out my twig stove, cooked up some coffee and sausages, stopped at the grave of David Dewey, and got a bit lost.

Adventure: #76 Ozark Trail - Blair Creek Section





Did some maintenance work down on the Ozark Trail.  Bit of leaf blowing on the northern section by Hwy P trailhead then walked a bit the next day doing tree removal and scouting tread issues.  Camped overnight at Himont Trailhead.  Nice place and the weather was perfect.

Gear: #56 Modifying an Alice Pack for a Chainsaw


In this episode of Gear, I dicuss some issues with the PVC frame for the Alice pack as well as make a modification that will allow the lid to close with a chainsaw in the sack. I also talk a bit about the sewing I used and future plans for upgrading the Alice pack as a dedicated chainsaw pack. Don't be afraid to modify your gear, make it your own.
