cooking | 3 Nights on the PA Appalachian Trail Zombie Preperation Hike

3 Nights on the PA Appalachian Trail Zombie Preperation Hike

In this installment we visit a section of the Appalachian Trail in Pennsylvania. Entering via the trail head in Port Clinton, PA, we set out for a taste of some Fall backpacking. For those of you familiar with the Allentown Cabela's, it's the range of mountains to your right when you're standing out front. It was far from sub-zero, but certainly colder than we experienced in our previous adventures.Most importantly, we used this trip as an oppurtunity to sharpen our skills for that pesky Zombie invasion that seems to always be right around the corner. On the menu: About 7 miles of night hiking to warm up the old headlamps, some gear stashing psysical camo practice, off trail bushwacking, and plenty of rule #1, Cardio! This was followed by some much needed Limbering Up, and a definate avoidence of bathrooms.We also did a bit of sightseeing too. Most notably, a spot called 'The Pinnacle'. Apparently it's quite popular with the local day hikers. we got the hell out of there and back to the bush.

cooking | 8 MSR Pocket Rocket Knock Off? Cheap Backpacking Stove Test

8 MSR Pocket Rocket Knock Off? Cheap Backpacking Stove Test

Taking a look at an $8 clone of the MSR Pocket Rocket Stove. I recently ordered this piece of little piece of gear as an inexpensive way to start experimenting with Canister Stoves. My current go-to setup is a DIY alcohol stove that I love for the light weight (ultralight actually), but Winter is coming, along with cold weather, and the price was right. See where this is going? The manufacturer claimed a weight of 3.9 ounces. According to my scale, that includes the case (that I'll never use), so the true weight rang it at 3.25 ounces. I didn't have an MSR Pocket Rocket to weigh at the time of filming, but the REI website lists it at 3oz, so the weights are similar. The $8 clone also boasts a Piezo Ignition system, which the real Pocket Rocket actually doesn't come equipped with. Most wouldn't rely solely on a Piezo ignition without an a reliable, back-up fire source though, so that's not really the end of the world. It also probably adds a bit of weight, but if you're hardcore enough, you could probably snip it off. Now let's see if it works...

2015 Ultralight Backpacking Gear List

A look at my current sub-10 pound 3-Season Ultralight Backpacking Gear List. Printable list at http:www.sintax77.comIn this video we'll take detailed look at all of the items in my current 3-Season Ultralight Backpacking system load-out. This is the exact same load-out that I used in West Virginia during early October for the Ultralight Backpacking in the Cranberry Wilderness video. On this trip the overnight and morning lows got down as low as the mid-thirties and I made it by using the gear seen. Now, I wouldn't take this load-out for sustained expected temps in that range, but in a pinch, at least I know I can get by. This is pretty much my go-to backpacking system for everything except for winter, from Tennessee up to Maine.As seen in the video, I use a hammock camping system, running at 9.5 pounds, but I'll show you some modifications for ground sleeping as well as warmer weather options to save weight (as low as 7.5 lbs), in both the video as well as my different gear lists, which are available on the Gear Lists page of my website, for those who wish to see specific weights, categories, and item descriptions.

cooking | DIY Ultralight Cookset Dirt Cheap! 3oz

DIY Ultralight Cookset Dirt Cheap! 3oz

Making a ultralight cooking set for backpacking and hiking using household items without spending a dime.Sure it's no Titanium pot, but it also didn't cost me $50 - $100. Honestly, I think the Titanium cook-sets look pretty cool, but I've got plenty of other hiking gear that I deserves an upgrade before I do that.For now, the solution was pretty simple:1 Cat Can Stove - Made from a 3oz can of Fancy Feast Cat Food 1 29oz Tin Can - In my case, it was some canned tomatoes. They were quite tasty. Pieces of aluminum foil to use as a custom lightweight lid. Some denatured alcohol from my basement to use as a cheap, reliable fuel source. Plastic Water Bottle to hold the fuel. Total Weight without Fuel: 3oz Total Weight with enough Fuel for 4 batches of Ramen Noodles: 5.25ozOptional - 1 Light My Fire Spork (Any fast food utensile could work too) Optional - Plastic Medicine Cup to measure fuel (you know, from that old bottle of 'tussin)So there you have it, simple, effective, lightweight and practically free. Weight-wise it's hard to beat. Now, ounce for ounce, alcohol doesn't necessarily;y have the best weight to energy ratio, but where it shines is it's ability to scale to your needs. You can bring exactly as much (or little) as you need. Compare that to an MSR fuel canister (white gas etc) weighing in at about a half pound a piece. Of course, the canister gas stoves stomp all over my little set-up in terms of cooking and boiling times. And don't even bring up the issue of melting snow, another win for the pressurized gas stove. Both systems have their advantages, so you'll have to take close a look at your needs before choosing what goes in your pack. For my needs though, this will work just fine.Now I'll just sit back and wait for someone to tell me how dangerous cooking in a tin can is for my health :DAll content, including music and sound effects, is original and created by myself.

cooking | Renovo TRIO Water Filter Sawyer Squeeze Killer?

Renovo TRIO Water Filter Sawyer Squeeze Killer?

Taking a first look at the Renovo TRIO Water Filtration System. Has the Sawyer Squeeze Mini met it's match? Time to do some testing... http:www.sintax77.comSpecs and Water Filter Description as per Manufacturer:UF Filter Pore Size: .05 Microns Dimensions: 7.1" x 1.4" Weight: 3.5 oz. Capacity: 1000L Flow rate:= 200 mlmin1. Pre-filter:Similar to a coffee filter, the purpose of the pre-filter is to remove large particulates in the water. This enables the Trio to be used in turbid water sources. This filter element is rated at .05 microns. The Trio comes with 4 replacements of the pre-filter.2. Renovo Trio UF hollow fiber membraneUF Hollow Fiber MembraneThe Ultra Filtration (UF) hollow fiber membrane is unique in a couple ways. First, it has a large surface area that enables a high flow rate. Second, the membrane has a smaller pore size than most other hollow fiber membrane filters. When the hollow fiber membrane has reduced flow, simply back flush the filter with clean water and continue use. It is recommended to back flush this element before putting in storage. 3. Renovo Trio Activated carbon tipThe last filter element is a carbon impregnated fiber. To be effective, water must be in contact with the carbon so the carbon can absorb the contaminates. Many water filters use a granular carbon that can develop pathways or channels through the medium which reduces exposure. Block carbon is by far the best method of exposing water to the medium but has a significantly low flow rate. Using a carbon impregnated fiber, the Trio is able to maximize exposure while minimizing the pathways or channels that can develop in other filters. A note on the PackagingThe innovation does not stop with the filter technology. The Renovo Trio is packaged in a hermetically sealed bag that extends the life of the filter. Activated carbon, when exposed to air can begin the degrade and lose the effectiveness of the medium. Because of the unique packaging of the Trio, it can be stored for many years and retain the effectiveness of the filter. Each replacement filter elements come in a hermetically sealed bag as well.

Camping the Dolly Sods Wilderness Fall Backpacking in West Virginia

3 Days of Fall Camping, Hiking and Backpacking in Dolly Sods, West Virginia. GPS data at http:www.sintax77.comFor this adventure, we'll be exploring a very unique area of West Virginia - the Dolly Sods Wilderness Area, within the Monongahela National Forest. Being a high altitude plateau sitting at around 4,000 feet (the highest plateau east of the Mississippi river), the Sods offer a stark contrast to the surrounding West Virginian ecosystem. In fact, you may feel more like you're in Canada than West Virginia.For an overview and listing of my gear check out this video: by my wife and our two close friends, this was a 3 day, 2 night backpacking adventure. Each day's track data was recorded to individual GPX data files, available for download over at my website for those interested.Parking: Bear Rocks Trailhead 39.06352, -79.30326Trails Used in Order:Day One (11.5 Miles):Bear Rocks Trail 522 Raven Ridge Trail 521 Rocky Ridge Trail 524 Blackbird Knob Trail 553 (only for a very short segment) Big Stone Coal Trail 513 Setup Camp a bit before Little Stone Coal TrailDay 2 (9.5 Miles):Dunkenbarger Trail 558 Little Stone Coal Trail 552 Red Creek Trail 514 (Out-n-back excursion on Breathed Mountain Trail 553) Setup camp along Red Creek Trail between Breathed Mt and Blackbird KnobDay 3 (6 Miles):Red Creek Trail 514 Blackbird Knob Trail 511 Upper Red Creek Trail 509 Dobbin Grade Trail 526 - Prepare for mud and thigh-deep sinkholes!
