I posted this article a few years ago, since then a few things have changed. I found broken links, some links were no longer appropriate for this website. I fixed my article and put in pictures I had taken in the past. I only wished I had taken and saved more pictures some items have been removed that I miss. This is still a very nice place to visit. For a small area it has outstanding variety.
I won’t steal any more thunder from the article. to read more please click here.
I have enjoyed testing the Hiker Hunger Outfitters Hammock Set. I have been pleasantly surprised at just how comfortable the hammock is. This is mostly due to the fact that it is not only a wide hammock but much longer than most typical hammocks of this type. I don’t have a lot of new information about the hammock so in my final update I just describe how the weather effected my hammock setup. You can read all the details by clicking here.
Due to hot weather and later reinjuring my right knee my testing was limited but I have now used the Watershed Animas 40L on a few overnight trips and a few dayhikes. In a nutshell, I have been extremely surprised at just how comfortable the pack is. But to read my more detailed impressions please click here.
Been a busy summer and much of that was traveling by plane so wasn’t able to take the Kisa with me. Imagine that.. However, I did use it around the home place enough to get a good feel for the axe. It has proven to be a very useful tool when an axe was required. I should qualify that because I used it in place of a chainsaw when both would have worked but an axe is just more satisfying to use. I’ll try to explain that in my update which can be read here.
I will be testing the Watershed Animas 40L in as many ways as possible over the next few months. As an avid hiker, cyclist, and kayaker I should find a few different ways to put it through the paces. I hope to establish how it works for each activity and most importantly, will it keep my gear dry. It is a dry bag after all.
