Re: Dry goods and other musings

Lentils. Lentils make a great dry staple. Perfect for making stews. They're a great source of protein and fiber. The biggest downside and why they're not used a lot in backpacking food is cooking times. You need to boil and simmer for 30 minutes or longer. For modern backpackers that means lots of f...

Re: What's everyone working on?

I was bored yesterday so I made a pouch from my leather scraps bin. I love making pouches like this. No pattern. Just digging through scraps and finding what kinda fits together with minimal cutting/waste. I've got a lap desk, so just sitting in front of the TV, watching Star Trek, cutting and stitc...

Re: Modern Camo Hunting Cloak

I saw your post on reddit! Very awesome, especially how it converts to a shelter. Haha. I knew double dipping on my posts would let someone find me. Even if the shelter is never used for an emergency, it could be great for convenience. Say I shoot a deer before dust and loose the blood trail in the...

Re: Modern Camo Hunting Cloak

My Modern Camo Hunting Cloak is done and it is working wonderfully. Well, maybe not working because I haven't gotten a deer yet, but I'm happy with it. It's kept me warm, dry, and hidden on a few hunts. It's nice to just sit down, wrap up, and wait. The extra, polar fleece inner cloak has been great...

Re: Regarding Trolls

I sort of assumed it was how their raised. That the Hobbit's trolls were essentially wild trolls doing whatever they liked. Later, the trolls in Lord of the Rings, were raised as beasts of war. Part of a cruel army, beating and twisting their natural malice, dumbing them down until they're just a ra...

Re: Modern Camo Hunting Cloak

Well, here is the camo outer cloak in action. http://i.imgur.com/G9c5uvDl.jpg http://i.imgur.com/wu26fe5l.jpg Not much to look at, but that's the point. Haha! I hunt on the ground without a blind. You can see the chair hanging from my pack. This was great to settle down and just wrap myself up and w...

Re: Modern Camo Hunting Cloak

Camo outer cloak is done (except waterproofing). I’m sitting in the woods, an hour before dawn, for my first test. Wish me luck!

Modern Camo Hunting Cloak

Not long ago I posted pictures of myself clad in modern hunting camo with my green ranger's cloak. Well, I've enjoyed hunting wearing my light cloak so much that I decided to make a modern version. Behold! This evening I have cut the fabric and taken the first steps to constructing my new cloak! htt...

Re: Dwarven Totem Animals/Nature

My vote is for Raven or crows... as a mountain dweller, crows alert you of danger, incoming people ect. All the wild boars do is wreck shit, muck up the watering holes and cause general mayhem. Ok, I'm confused. You say your vote is for raven or crows, but then you give such a compelling argument F...
