It was almost calm and I could hear a noise way off to the west, here. And that’s the thunderstorm blowing in. It’s really humid again today. It’s only about 20 degrees celsius right now, it’s supposed to go up closer to 30, getting closer to 40 when you factor in the humidity. Yeah, here it comes. So it’s probably gonna get this…

    Backpacking & Camping Tips : Staying Warm in a Sleeping Bag

    Hi, I’m Richard Fields. In this clip we’re going to talk about how to stay warm in your sleeping bag. Of course, zipping it up all the way is, number one. Your bag needs to be on a, a good quality pad to insulate you from the ground, where you’re going to loose most of your heat. Having done that, it’s a good idea if you have some kind of long underwear, polypropylene or wool, top and bottom. That will increase the warmth of the bag quite a bit. On really cold nights, you zip that bag up all the way to where the only thing showing is your face,…

    I GOT HURT Building a PRIMITIVE KITCHEN in the Forest

    (upbeat music) (water gurgling) (ax thudding) – What’s up? What’s up? You trying to fetch? (dog panting) So, it’s been over a week since I took all the sand out of the stove or out of the oven, but it’s still not feeling dry enough to start a fire in there. So, I’m probably going to have to wait a full ‘nother week, I think, before I even light a small fire, nevermind actually cook something in there. So, I put a candle in there and we’ll see if it helps dry it out a little bit quicker but, again, slowly enough that it doesn’t crack. The problem is because…

    Backpacking Stoves & Cooking : Backpacking Cooking Sets

When you get a cook set, backpacking ones tend to be nested. You’ll notice that there’s pots inside of pots. There’s no handles coming off the side, why because they have handles that come off and hold on just like that. It all nests inside of itself to keep things nice and compact. If you’re in a group, and you can afford the weight, they even…

    Backpacking Stoves & Cooking : Backpacking With Stove Pot Systems

    Some companies have developed a cooking system. They have pots that are integrated with the stove. This one by Jet boil; a very compact system. You have your cartridge here, the stove, and then the pot. It’s all connected. When you’re not using it, the stove fits very nicely inside the pot. This one by MSR; very efficient. What they do is they have a heat exchanger on the pot, and it directs the heat toward the pot. When it’s on, you can actually place your hands on either side of the pot, and you can’t really feel the heat. These systems are best for heating water. There’s a little…
