    Bob "Ole" Olsen turned 90, November 28th and is still mowing foam. A wonderful Man who keeps on ticking. I bought two of his "bumblebee model" 3 stringers boards in the 90's though one got stolen and the other, a guy begged me to sell him the other, which I did. I'm going back to Lahaina Maui to...

    Woniya, impressed me with her "home smart" knowledge and skills in building her shelter and the tools, that she decided to bring with her. Food was an emotional roller coaster for her but she did quite well with her finish.

    I remember when you and your wife did that hike! Fun photo's and essay that you did on the erBB. I watched a YouTube video where some hikers had their backpacks picked up and dropped off at different camp sites on that Catalina hike and I thought of you Kento & Sis, lugging your packs over hill...

    Whoa!! Niiicce! A big upgrade from the regular nylon tent set up. Pricey, but the cat's meow for tent camping. I've followed a few folks on YouTube. "Shug" Emery, hammock hanger, who uses a Dynema tarp over his hammock. "Darwin on the trail" and "Homemade Wanderlust," "Dixie" both triple...

    DYI alcohol stoves were cool to make! Quite the rage when they came out because of how light they were. The "fuel", coming from the "Gas-Line antifreeze" HEET, in the yellow plastic bottle, not the Red. One ounce of fuel can heat 16 ounces of water in about 5 minutes - / + and certainly not ,as...

    Thanks you guys! I tried to load photo's and couldn't. Anyway, I have the MSR Whisperlight, the original, umteen years old and an old workhorse.

    " Maybe the big bucks are not there like it used to be, but for any of us that were sponsored 30 years ago, you know what it was like to get that box of clothes, shoes, wetsuits, etc... that alone was enough to stoke you out big time. Ah the times must have changed " :( Suck it up ~ T'was...
