    Shiftpod tent

    Actually, for wind I would take this tent anywhere. I can't imagine a large tent more suitable for wind. But the stitching seems concerning. If you look on the photo here (reposted from above) in the upper right corner, what's up with that? There doesn't seem to be a lot of information on...

    What makes a Unicat worth more than a Earth Roamer?

    Exactly what I've been saying. And even our own correct answer is a moving target. ^^^

    For those that carry Guns and Overlanding

    I see. In truth, the 4475 has a multitude of uses beyond proving firearm ownership. I have several forms for my more expensive optics (spotting scopes, binos and rifle scopes) for the same reason of being able to prove I owned them when I left the country. Its always seemed like a good way to...

    Interesting. Does Canada have an equivalent construct as our Form 4457 - which in layman's terms is a way to prove that you owned something before you left with it so that you don't get accused of importing something that you purchased (or stolen) abroad? I have a booklet of 4457s that have...

    Crisis in our national parks: how tourists are loving nature to death

    As am I. People are lazy. I aim to be just slightly less lazy, which has worked out pretty well and I find my favorite spots are usually just a short hike away.

    I was making the assumption that in order to defend yourself with the method of choice you would first need to purchase it. Did I miss something in the distinction between the two that caused you to call that out? Maybe I misunderstood. Hard to argue that point. But there's quite difference...

    Shiftpod tent

    Looking to "revive" this thread a bit as I'm now keenly interested in how the shiftpod could work in elk camp. For this purpose I would think the "snow pole" would be a good accessory and also I would end up cutting/insulating a smoke stack hole in the top for a wood stove. (Although the idea...

    For those that carry Guns and Overlanding

    That's interesting. Requiring someone to receive training in order to defend themselves seems a bit overbearing. Can you carry a baseball bat concealed in public in Canada or something silly like that? Does anyone understand the logic or history behind the training requirement? Did Canada...

    Would that imply that UNTRAINED people shouldn't be allowed to defend themselves in the manner they see fit?
