The MacCat comes standard with seam-sealing, and the listed weight reflects this. The JRB does not come seam-sealed, so the listed weight does not include it. This is tough to compare because both tarps are high-quality pieces of lightweight gear. I noticed a few irregular stitches on both, but that’s the only “defect” The JRB is of excellent quality, but the MacCat I received looks like it’s a little bit higher quality workmanship, and the grosgrain trim and webbing at the guyline connections make the tarp appear to be more durable. Brian says the trim improves the strength of the tarp especially important if it’s whipping in the wind during setup and provides a nice finished appearance.
We are looking for some help, because our experience with the shelter has been limited to the relatively dry Northern Rockies.

Understand the different levels of care you can expect from each facility. Detox facilities provide a safe, medicinally aided and monitored program for addressing the physical aspects of addiction. Residential rehabilitation programs provide care in a controlled environment with extra support to help mitigate the risk of relapse during recovery.
Partial hospitalization treatment options are most beneficial for those who with a dual diagnosis of a mental health disorder and substance abuse disorder.

Camping with an Electric Blanket
Taking your home system with you on the road By Cliff Maurand We’ve read a lot of input lately from people who had home Satellite systems, and desired to take it with them on the road. This is particularly interesting for those that full time, or travel a lot and want to keep in tune with what’s going on in the world. Not everyone heads for the campground to become one with nature, but those are the purist who usually still camp in a tent.
For the avid RV’er the playing field is a little more sophisticated, and bringing a wireless cable connection with you can be very desireable.
Apr 04, · Best Answer: A Amp hook-up is still V, just like your outlets at home. A Amp outlet just uses a different plug. But every campground I’ve ever visited (quite a few) also provide standard Amp or Amp outlets, either of which will accept normal household : Resolved.
With the hide laid outwards in this fashion, the meat from the main carcass could be removed and placed on the hide the hide acting as what we’d call today a ground cloth. It protected the meat from getting dirty. Once enough meat was removed to allow the carcass to be handled more easily, then they would proceed with the butchering of the rest of the meat and innards. Boudin, small grass filled intestines being the treat of the day, roasted on sticks over an open fire On a caribou hunt lonnnng ago, I had a Shiloh Sharps military carbine in.
The others in the hunting party had their. We were about 40 miles out, using snow machines, and wandered down in to a low valley area. It was cold enough below zero, but down in that lower elevation, there was a cold spot, and the temp had dropped to around below zero. Now that puts the ice on the old whiskers for sure! Well wouldn’t ya know it.
Me hunting partners, upon spotting ‘bou, immediately begin firing with their modern rifles. Just pushed them ‘bou out beyond the yard range, further than I felt comfortable using the military carbine at. So, I borrowed a 7mm mag from one of the guys, and went off after a ‘bou of my own. The others already had their ‘bou down and were beginning to field dress them.
Camping, Campgrounds & Campsites
Well this the real world and sometimes you want to get it on with your mate-of-the-moment in imperfect circumstances, like when your only retreat is a somewhat-smelly hostel room with six bunk beds and a drunk girl passed out in the corner after a big night at a London pub. Never fear, here are some tips to help you get it on in a European hostel. Some work better in all-girl dorms, and some in all-boy dorms.
For coed dorms there are likely people screwing anyway so just go for it.
A dual battery setup with an isolator, for those who don’t know, is pretty much what it sounds like: connecting two car batteries to your vehicle’s alternator while adding in an isolator of some sort to keep the batteries separate (isolated!).
I was on my way to a solo camping trip in Cape Breton Island for a few days before teaching a workshop in Halifax, and had to pass through a small town called Antigonish. Using the Couch Search, I found a doctoral student with a spare room who seemed nice. He was smart and friendly and had a lot of positive reviews. One thing led to another, and we ended up making out in the rain in a tiny tent. We dated long-distance while I fulfilled the rest of my tour, and he wrote me long letters from his summer archaeological site, smeared with dust and waiting for me at any address I gave him.
Eventually we split up, but I always wondered if maybe other people had successfully used Couchsurfing as a dating service. Not just a dating service: One woman met her husband through surfing…and now they use the site to host threesomes and moresomes with willing visiting guests. Another man details his various conquests and mentions that he lists on his profile that he will only accept surfers who are female, and between a certain younger age range. When I was surfing and hosting more regularly, I saw those profiles occasionally.
Often they were accompanied by a picture of the host where a female companion had carefully been cropped out. Someone who said they were only interested in female surfers men need not apply…no homo! Unsurprisingly, the pickup artist culture thought exactly the opposite, and found Couchsurfing to be a ripe area for exploitation. A guy named Maverick wrote a guide to hooking up while couchsurfing, which has since disappeared from his website, although another stellar article 8 Signs of a Slutty CouchSurfer Girl remains.
Mountain Hiking on Rocks and Snow
A few last tips and some recommended manufacturers. It is easy to forget we live in a modern, globalised world where many Asian cities are becoming more not less modern than the Western world. A world where tourism is the largest global industry and everything possible to cater towards and make money from visitors is done – including providing any items for sale specific to local circumstances or the whims of those that pass through. So there you have it.
You probably still have those niggling doubts and it is worth looking at why we have all become so brain-washed into thinking we need to pack as if we were having dinner with the ambassador one evening, hitting the disco after and heading into the woods to live wild the next.
Hiking poles come in handy for a lot of things, such as crossing rivers, probing mud depth, and moving wet brush out of the people swear by them for helping support and balance the weight of a heavy pack, and they’re an invaluable aid if you happen to fall while snowshoeing.
But in a very temporary, carelessly, romantically engineered way. New bonds are created, new cultures are encountered, and new accents are adored. Meeting more and more people, especially if you are alone, gives you that encouragement to make the first move, buy the first beer, ask the first question and even slip the hand down first. Have you ever come across a hot yoga teacher from South Africa who loves a beer when you are from England? There is no such thing as a reputation here. This is better for women, as men are known as legends for their sexual antics.
Women are known to be devious on the road and in some instances, as obvious and forward as men are. You both are doing the same thing, living the dream on the road. You have something instantly in common.

The benefits of camping with solar power. Solar power is a clean form of energy that’s natural, renewable, and best of all free.

From a traveller perspective, South America splits into roughly three regions. The more developed Southern countries of Argentina, Uruguay and Chile; with their European feel, political stability and relatively high standards not to mention great wine and meat. Here you have the main concentration of travellers, drawn not only by the world famous sights, but also the significantly lower cost of travel certainly in Bolivia.
And a more ‘authentic’ South American feeling with a great percentage of indigenous population highest in Bolivia and stereotypical scenery. South America on the whole lacks difficult border crossings and visa headaches although Americas will occasionally run into hefty charges. Bus transport is easy to arrange and there is a very established trail of attractions often known as the ‘Gringo Trail’.

Thank you for reading! One of my most frequently asked questions about my truck camping setup was always in regards to a dual battery setup and adding an isolator. In practice this means that while you are driving around all day you are charging both batteries like normal, but when the vehicle is off the batteries are not connected and cannot see one another. Thus allowing you to connect your accessories and electronics up to this secondary battery to use while camping without ever worrying about killing your main battery and being unable to start your vehicle the following morning.
Hook-up and RV Camping. The RV hook-up sites at Lake Perris have water, grey water, and electrical hook-ups. Unfortunately, there are no black-water sewer hook-ups, but a dump station located at the campground site has a picnic table and a fire ring with a grill.

You’ve set up camp far away from restroom facilities, so you can’t relieve yourself in a spot with indoor plumbing. You also don’t want to leave human waste near your campsite because it’s not only a land and water pollutant but also a health hazard. To avoid any of these less than desirable situations, you’ll have to dispose of human waste in a way that minimizes both the potential to contaminate the area around you and the likelihood that it will attract unwanted critters to your campsite.
A good way to get rid of human waste is to bring a camping toilet along with you on your expedition. Camping toilets allow you to do your business and then collect it to dispose of later.
