    Checklist for winter trip to Baxter (bunkhouse/cabin)

    I started using Aqua Mira a long time ago and still think it is a great option. I do still filter on a select trips depending on water source using a small filter like the sawyer.

    Tips for the new Dog

    One thing I would caution against is strenuous constant exercise. Some hikes like you are doing now are great, but don't push it in the first year. Their growth plates are still growing and you don't want to risk long term damage just to get a few extra miles in the first year. If you are...

    Backpacker Magazine

    I think if you sign up to have a Tanga account, it is $1 cheaper...probably not worth it though. I also generate a Virtual Account Number for the credit card. If you guys haven't tried it, you should. It is a great system for online shopping when you don't know the site well!

    Loon, Loons and more Loons

It proceeded to get within arms reach (I could have actually reached out and touched him!). It then dove back and forth under the boat for the rest of the day and even took a fish off the...

    I have gotten in the habbit of spraying some tick spray on my lower pant legs, boot area. Not sure if it really helps, but it doesn't hurt. I will have to say the ticks aren't as bad here as they are in Scotland. At one camp site, my wife walked into the woods a few feet to go to the bathroom...

    A bad expierence in the woods today......

    Well there are a lot of stupid people in this world and unfortunately some of them venture into the woods with guns to "hunt". I used to hunt and it pisses me off beyond belief to hear stories like excuse for it (on the "hunter's" part). Why in the world would you shoot at something...

    To treat or not? - Ticks

    Well, I went to the doc "just in case" and they scheduled a titer for 4 weeks from now along with a 1 time dose of antibiotics. Apparently if you take this one time dose within 72hrs of tick removal you should be set. after that time, the treatment is meds for a month or so. Better safe than...
