    I’ve had the opportunity to try a couple Jeff White knives over the years. While the edges were indeed sharp the overall blade geometry was lacking.

    Those are neat. Took a bit to figure it out but used one to do dishes on my last camping trip.

    I have a Zodi and a couple sun bags. Zodi rocks but it's bulky...

    Can't really think of anything off hand,which makes me feel pretty good. Spent the last year or so minimizing my gear and have come a long way. Also I have a toddler, an infant and an amazing wife that I'd much rather spend money on. But, If extra funds came my way and I had to spend it on myself I'd like to finish my AR and I could use some good hiking boots : )

    I'd like to be 40 years younger so that I could use all the gear I've accumulated over the years and surely don't need any more.

    Any chance you want to fly with a chunk of fatwood ? :18:

    The shipping from Iceland to Finland is like a fraction of the shipping from US.

    A 4lb box was like 5 isk and that is under a $1 (25cm x15cm x7cm)

    Just asking :7:

    Ok I've practically completed my wishlist now that my Kabar BK14 EsKabar has arrived... But it has led me to creating a new wishlist... I now need a Kydex sheath and Micarta or Zytel scales for it...
    Anyone tried making their own scales for one of these?

    I'm tentatively planning an attempt at the Sierra High Route next year- need a larger volume (but still light) pack; also need a down quilt in the 15-ish degree range; have been looking, but haven't pulled the trigger on anything yet

    Currently my heart yearns for a solo canoe. Something like a Hornbeck, Hemlock, or Placid Boat Works.

    Didn't know that. Had mine for about 10years. They're great if you have the room/weight to carry it in... Hard to beat a nice hot shower in the cut...

    Yes, actually, I believe we will all be about 30 years old in the next chapter of this saga. Won’t that be wonderful?

    GOPR3408.JPG I've been looking for Baker tents for awhile now but find them pricey over $300 plus if they're canvas,way too heavy to carry n a backpacking trip.If they;re only water repellent instead of flame retardant or sun forger they supposedly don't last long,Track off the Wolf sells one for $265 in water repellent.I have no idea of it's weight.My shelter at my camp is similar too a Baker,but I used a 10x12 poly tarp.But for backpacking I found one on ebay for $125 with the area of 5x8 feet footprint.It's lightweight only 18 ozs.Here's a few photos and the link if anyone's interested,plus the specifications.

    A Baker Style San Juan 2 tarp/tent is a very quick setting up, lightweight, and airy tent that is very useful in many situations. Depending on the setup it can sleep anywhere from 1 to 3 campers. A pole or treking pole fits inside the corner webbings. No grommets to pull out or rust. The sleeping foot print averages about 5 feet by 8 feet covered area. The rear of the tent is support by Easton aluminum poles. The height of the front of the tent is about 50" and the rear about 10". It has a front beak that helps in weather protection.

    These San Juan tarps/tents are made especially for ebay sales.
    • San Juan 2 silnylon tarp/tent made from 1.35oz silnylon
    • Approximate weight 18 oz
    • Webbing ties with reinforcement
    • Rear Easton aluminum support poles
    • 1 center panel tie
    • seamed sealed
    Each order includes:
    • San Juan 2 silnylon tarp/tent in gray
    • Silnylon stuff sack
    • 2 Rear Easton aluminum support poles
    • Guylines for rear poles
    • Poles or trekking poles are not included

    The zytel scales truly transform the knife and are a great deal (2 sets..a black and orange set both for under 20)
    Or spring for a set of TKC scales. They feel incredible in hand

    Now that they're getting hard to find, I've decided I'd really like a Polish lavvu and a Swedish LK35 :D

    But I'll last without them :)

    I'm set reasonably well but there's always a few things I'd like to have.

    1) Large Pack. I'm set with smaller packs but I'd like to pick up a new 'expedition'/winter pack. Right now I use an older Dana Designs Terraframe; nice pack but heavy! I'm thinking of either a new larger Mystery Ranch or Hill People Gear pack (so maybe a MR Terraframe 80 or Glacier, probably the Qui-Ya if HPG).

    2) Big bore wheelgun. I carry a 9mm (sometimes a pair of 'em) in bear country which really is everywhere near me. That's not much gun for Grizzlies! Generally my Mossberg 500 is close by, loaded with Brenekke slugs. But the shottie is a lot to tote all the time so I'd like to pick up either a 4" S&W 69 or a 5" 629.

    3) Maybe a Helinox cot and a lighter tent. I've got a really nice tarp but I just like tents better.

    My wishlist now is pretty long but topping it out are:

    1. A good fixed blade, I'm looking at an Ontario RAT-5 as a serious possibility.
    2. 100% wool blanket
    3. Folding Saw
    4. Collabsable fishing rod
    5. Woods pistol, probably a single-action .22 revolver

    Over all of this, I'd love a good amount of land to roam and camp on. I've got about 2-3 acres on my fiance's grandparent's property, but I'd love something a bit bigger where I can actually roam and explore a bit.

    Those old snake boots of mine still have quite a few miles left on them even though the lining tore out of the right boot.The zipper still works,which I expected would've been the first to give me trouble.I got em for only $50 at the bargain basement at Cabelas.

    I think, apart for a trip to New Zealand, my wishlist just got stumped quite short.
    First it was @DavidJAFO who sent me a box of goodies from Scotland

    received_2492749280979034.jpeg

    And it was followed by another awesome box from the states from a very giving person @pellegrino
    I must teach not just the seven year old son to use flint and steel, but I think one of the girls need to learn it too as I now have flint for a lifetime and steels for three of us. But I think I won't be sharing the sniffin stuff with the minors :18:

    The box I got today
    I think one of the wood chunks is telling me it wants to be a fs handle :7:

    Edit: ps. Customs were not the least bit interested and you could sniff the sniffin stuff to the outside!

    The only thing on my wish list for the near future is a Becker BK9 to replace the dirty, rotten Schrade.
