2018-11-09T03:14:27+00:00

I have owned the smaller Silky folding saw for several years and its been one of those staple items always in my pack ready to go. Even after many years of service my Silky is still sawing like a champ. A recent project allowed me to get my hands on

Log Cabin Build – Moving logs on the wall by hand

2018-10-31T01:16:06+00:00

Here I have an early video of my off grid log cabin build. Along with peeling and scribing the logs, moving logs on the wall was one of the steps that was quite time consuming. All my logs came up one way and then had to be moved into position

Winter Hammock Camping – Managing Cold and Condensation

2018-10-23T00:57:50+00:00

The video you see here is one of the first hammock camping videos I shot. In the early hammock camping days I was trying all kinds of things to stay warm. I actually started out with just a sleeping bag and emergency blanket in Winter, those were tough lessons. I

BRING ON THE SNOW! – OneTigris DOUBLE hammock underquilt

2018-10-16T01:13:31+00:00

Finally the OneTigris DOUBLE hammock underquilt arrived. With the cold season knocking at the door I was eager to get out and test the under quilt on my Hennessy hammock before the snow flies. Getting things dialed in before snow camping is always a good idea. This is the second

How to push your mountain bike up a mountain

2018-09-27T02:25:13+00:00

Clearly I enjoy punishing myself. A great way to do this is to take a mountain bicycle for a walk up a mountain... you could take your dog but riding your dog downhill may not be as fun.

OGW Review – The OneTigris 3 season hammock underquilt

2018-09-27T01:09:59+00:00

For years I have considered purchasing an underquilt for my Hennessy hammock expeditions. Unfortunately good cold weather underquilts just seemed so ridiculously priced. I've been using my trusty lightweight Thermarest sleeping pad in my Hennessy for several years now and have been quite satisfied. Recently I stumbled upon the OneTigris

2018-09-21T00:55:50+00:00

So here I am on a little weekend excursion trying out a new sleep system combining my bivy sack and the Big Agnes Air Core Ultra. Given the terrain on this trip and the fact that I had decided to make the summit with my mountain bike I had to

Winter Chickens a pack rat in the roof and a thank you

2017-03-20T01:06:14+00:00

I have had many questions on my Chicken hoop house and folks seem to be interested in how the chickens fared through Winter. This Winter the coldest temperature I saw was -17 degrees, with regular temps in the single digits and teens. In This video, I answer some of the

Off Grid Log Cabin Build – A little roof framing and apology

2017-03-06T00:04:21+00:00

Most of 2016 was trying to say the least. As I explain in this video between the stress of trying to get a roof over our heads and a dysfunctional relationship making videos and documenting my cabin build did not go as planned. I know this video is not ideal
