Re: WallyWorld Clearence!

That Sawyer filter is what I used for the filter I made.
Got it at WW for $30 a couple of weeks ago.
Bought both that they had, actually. :)

Aluminum cans?

Been looking at woodgas stove plans and haven't seen any using nested aluminum cans of different sizes. I'm sure there is a reason for this. I'm guessing that the cans will melt. Can anyone confirm or refute this? I'm just thinking that a small aluminum can based woodgas would be lighter than the on...

Re: Light gravity feed water filter DIY

Thanks for the feedback, everyone, and sorry for the post with a bad link. I have fixed the link in the original post. On the pre-filter note... I've been looking for a good solution to two problems: -prefilter the water to protect the Sawyer filter (which can be back-washed in the field, but is sup...

Light gravity feed water filter DIY

Howdy folks. I went on a group hike and hang a few weeks ago with a bunch of folks from hammockforums.net. Found that many of the faster hikers were carrying water filters instead of carrying jugs of water. Back in the day I used a First Need filter on AT hikes, and it worked great, but was a lot of...

Re: What scale for weighing gear?

Ah yes... thrift stores.
I purposely stay away from thrift stores.
The pack rat in me sees a DIY project use for too many things.
I think my wife would bury me in my sleep under a pile of "stuff I might find a DIY use for someday" if I also started going to thrift stores. :)

What scale for weighing gear?

Not sure if I'm putting this in the right forum. Ok, I finally decided that I need a digital scale for weighing the gear that I make and buy... just finding it difficult to decide what to get. I want the cheapest thing that will work reliably. I want to weigh really light things like alcohol stoves,...

Re: Tested a bunch of DIY gear this weekend

that looks like a lot of fun and a very nice area to camp. GReat job on the hammock and everything else too. Chapeau for getting your girl out. :D Yep. Nice park. Felt rather remote, so none of the "camping on top of your neighbor" issues that you might find in a commercial campground... ...
