Gear: #48 Bottle Bag Modifications

Bottle bags are a great way to contain essential kit into one container. But it is difficult to get the lid for my cup out of the bottom not to mention the lid of the bag has wasted space. No more!! Time to mod.

Adventure: #64 Howell Island Conservation Area Part 2

Took a day trip over to Howell Island Conservation Area for a bit of a scout. Found tons of great things, did a bit of compass work, and hit the river for some lunch. It is a great place.

Adventure: #31 Ozark Trail Middle Fork Section

An educational and very cold trip on the Ozark Trail. This time I hit the Middle Fork section. Conditions were icy and cold. But it was a great shake down of the new gear that I have recently bought.  Great section of trail, well worth the drive down.

Gear: #31 Build a Wood Gasifier Stove

In a previous video, I talked about about alcohol and wood gas stoves. Well this video is how I made it. Dead simple and cheap.  Be sure to check out the original Backpacker Light forum thread were I got the idea.
