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.

Gear: #30 Ramblings on Alcohol and Wood Gasifier Stoves

A while back I had a comment on a video about why I did not use a wood gas stove. Mainly it was weight. But I thought about it and wondered if it really was lighter in the long run.

Gear: #27 No Sew Tyvek Windshirt / Rain Jacket

In this gear video, I show how to make a Windshirt/ Rain Jacket out of a set of Tyvek coveralls. This project is quite easy and fairly cheap. The materials needed are a Tyvek Coverall, Tyvek Tape and scissors. I spruced it up with a shockcord hood and some cordlocks. I will do another video with dyeing and how to make the chaps.

Tyvek Coveralls - This is the XL. Make sure to get the TY127S in your size.
