    Maintaining a small prairie remnant in southeastern Wisconsin

    Fantastic! I was just sent here by a buddy. This botanist approves. Great effort. If I lived closer I would offer to help with the weed removal.

    Have you made your own DIY propane hose for a camp stove?

    Geez, I didn't realize who made this post. My apologies Ash. Go to Action Hose on Stanford, off Candelaria. They should be able to set you up.

    Getting it made with a longer hose should not be a problem. Any hose shop should be able to cut the ferrules off the fitting, and the regulator, and install new ferrules with the hose length of your choice. I just had my Partner Steel stove hose lengthened. Different deal, but same idea.

    Garmin Overlander

    Excellent. When I'm out my inReach tracking is on all the time. I never turn it off, so having the Overlander turn it on and off via Track Recorder won't work for me. Like I said, though, I have the inReach sync'd to my phone, so this isn't an issue. I will look at Travel History. I'm not sure I...

    Garmin Overlander

    I've been using the Explore website for several years with my inReach. I have no idea how it will handle the Overlander, yet. I can say I do not like the Library Collections of my tracks. For some reason, I just don't get it. Basecamp makes sense to me, so I will probably keep using that. Unlike...

    Garmin Overlander

    Well, I missed the $100 off sale a few months back. I decided I wasn't going to make the same mistake twice. I finally made the purchase. Background ... I currently use a GPSMAP 64st, an inReach SE+, and a Samsung Tab A (2017) tablet. My thought was to consolidate the Tablet and the 64st. I use...

    270 vs Standard Awning

    A wise buddy said once that "you can never have enough shade in the desert." As a desert boy this was a very profound statement that had occurred to be, but never articulated. I ran an ARB awning for a few years. In the desert it was never enough, and I had camo netting that I draped off the...

    Partner stove mod.. piezo ignition

    I can tip the grill/burner back and still clean it. I don't need to take it out. And if I did, the connector off the end of the push-button is easy to remove.

    Rhino-Rack BatWing Review/Write Up

    I did. I contacted the folks at Rhino-Rack. Their answer was: "Thank you for contacting Rhino Rack. I apologize for any confusion, this will only work on the Left hand. I will work to get that fixed on the compatibility." They suggested the Tapered Zip Extension, part 31112.

    I'm 5'10" and have a Small XL. I can't imagine being comfortable in the standard length Columbus. Especially with a second person.

    One-burner propane stove?

    I just use a Bakepacker if I want something like muffins. I made myself a blueberry muffin birthday cake in Baja for the big six-oh a few years ago. Ya, it's just a round mass instead of in fancy cups. But for camping, who cares? Just slice it up, slab on the butter, and dine.

    Trasharoo alternatives

    That would be of value to me if it was smaller.

    Trasharoo alternatives

    Cuz, it needs to be at least big enough for my solar shower and PETT toilet. Maybe next time I'm in Mesa I will chat with Will.
