Klymit – Static V inflatable air mattress
Blog 5 Mar 2014 | 8:42 am
Although there are a lot of camping mattress manufacturers, there are few that seem to master their market. Klymit is one of those companies that does it right, and the Klymit Static V is a great example of this.
The Static-V is Klymit's entry-level inflatable mattress, but don't be deceived by the price, it's performance is excellent.
Let's start with a look at the specs and move on to my thoughts.

Flag Retirement and Grommets
Blog 5 Mar 2014 | 7:00 am
Cindy sent in this question:
I would like to make a key chain or slide for the boys in our troop who participated in a recent flag retirement ceremony from the grommets that were left after the flags were burned. Has anyone done anything to preserve / recycle or create anything from the grommets. I think it would be a nice way to remember this meaningful ceremony.?? Thanks.
I have heard of many things which are done with the grommets, but never making a key chain. Some of the opinions I have received on what to do with the grommets include:
Nemo Tenshi Four-Season Tent Review
blog 5 Mar 2014 | 7:00 am
The Nemo Tenshi four-season tent sleeps two. It is an all-mountain tent that rivals the competition, a tent worth a serious look. As with any piece of gear there are trade offs. The Nemo Tenshi comes with all its components in a roll-up style stuff sack. The tent, vestibule and condensation curtain are folded up and tucked into one compartment. The stakes and guy lines have another segregated compartment, and the poles have their own segregated compartment, too. The stuff sack rolls up and clips together for neat storage and transport, which is clever but adds weight.
The initial setup went...

Meet the Coywolf
Blog 4 Mar 2014 | 9:06 am
Michael Smith shared this coywolf infographic with me on Google plus. The coywolf is a remarkable new hybrid mix of western coyote and eastern wolf. The coywolf’s range is growing and they are thriving in urban and suburban areas. It’s thought this new hybrid species first appeared early in the last century in Ontario, Canada’s Algonquin Provincial Park. We may have a coywolf (almost certainly a coyote) living quite nearby in our little town here in Southeastern Pennsylvania, there’s an ideal patch of habitat and I know people have seen a creature there that meets the description.
What I find remarkable (and inspiring)...
