A backpacking trip into the Nantahala Wilderness in Western North Carolina allowed me to try out most of these snacks on the trail. I was surprised with a few of the snacks – both in how they tasted and how easy/difficult they were to prepare in the backcountry. Click here to see my final update on the snacks, dips, and smoothie.
Have you ever had that perfect night of sleep while camping? I have, and the right pillow contributes greatly to my night of comfort. I have used the Sea To Summit Aeros Ultralight Deluxe pillow car camping and hammock camping over the last month, and it has performed admirably. Read on for my full update.
Few things can change how a trip in the backcountry is remembered more than food. Insufficient quantity or poor quality can dull the thrill of bagging a summit or ruin the satisfaction of a hard earned day on the trail.
Over the next month, I will be testing out some backcountry food products from Alpine Aire.

Let me start off by saying that my husband is the gear tester in our house. I’m NOT an outdoor person, and my idea of camping out involves room service! But I do like coffee, especially iced, cold-brew coffee, so when the opportunity to review a new cold brew system occurred, I strongly encouraged him to let me review it. I will be looking at ease of use, flavor of coffee as well as the cost of using the system. Read on for my initial thoughts on the gosh! Dripo Cold Brew Coffee System.

GSI Outdoors provided the Javamill for review purposes.
GSI Outdoors Javamill
I have been using the GSI Outdoors Javamill for over a month with good results. I have been using it at least once in the morning and sometimes during the day. I only went to a coffee shop once this month.
The adjusting took several days since I was only making one cup a day most of the time. My criteria is the amount of coffee sediment at the bottom of my empty cup of coffee. My setting is coarser than the pre-ground I buy. I do that because the filter on a French mill is not as fine as a paper filter. To read more please click here.
