  1. Book bag - best day pack?

    Wilderness Survival, Hiking and Camping Forum
    While packing for day hike I usually start off with something like the military surplus patrol pack, pack my gear, then decide if a smaller or larger pack will do. One of the drawbacks to this, the patrol pack has two canteens mounted on it. So whether I need two canteens full of water, they...
  2. Vienna sausage taste change?

    Food and water
    A few days ago I had the urge to eat some Vienna sausage. So I grabbed a can from the preps, opened the can, then began to feast. Right off the bat I noticed the taste was different than I remember. This was a fresh can bought only a few months ago. I keep my stockpile of Vienna sausage...

    Minnesota
    Two of us were looking to go camp in the Chippewa National Forest up in the Deer River area for three nights, kind of a cold-weather gear test, and a monkey wrench has been thrown into our plans.

    Wilderness Survival, Hiking and Camping Forum
    Let’s take a few minutes and talk about camping near bogs, bayous, and sloughs. From the early 1980s until the late 1990s, I primarily camped around the bogs, bayous and sloughs in Southeast Texas. Sometimes my buddies and I would hike to the camp location, sometimes we would take a boat. We...

  8. How Easy Is A LifeStraw To Use?

    Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Surely everyone has heard of a LifeStraw? It is a simple tube that is a water filter. Place the inlet into the water, then suck the water through the tube. Seems simple enough right? Almost too good to be true? If something seems to god to be true it usually is, except for the LifeStraw. Back...

    Wilderness Survival, Hiking and Camping Forum
    CACHE What to Cache and Preserving a Cache.

Not to mention that my First Aid Kit needed to be upgraded, after what happened the last time... I...

    I was out camping with some friends last weekend and after spending the first night, which was rather cold, my friend told me I should have slept in my sleeping bag without my clothes on, saying it would be warmer.
