When we moved back to Whidbey Island in Washington State, I was happy we lived near a trail system. While not big nor overly populated with users, it is a quiet gem on the south end of Whidbey Island. The Trillium Community Forest has three trailheads, and we are fortunate to live near the Bounty ..read more

Gear Review: Klymit V Seat
Trail Cooking Blog

4d ago
It’s not that I needed a new sit pad; my long-suffering Thermarest sit pad is doing just fine (it is so old, it is a prototype that fell off the wagon into my backpack and became a forever piece of gear). Still, as I walked past an endcap of Klymit gear at the local hardware ..read more

An Ode To The Wool Sweater
Trail Cooking Blog
by Sarah
2w ago
When I started hiking and backpacking long ago, wool was seen as fuddy-duddy. What was in style then were the newer fabrics, all created in labs by scientists. And it best had “tec” in its trademarked name back then. And overall, this hasn’t changed in the past 20 to 30 years. Maybe the biggest change ..read more

Kirk and I signed the paperwork the other week, and Ford Motor Company bought back my EV plugin car. It was rather jarring, as I had had it for five years. It got the equivalent of up to 72 mpg, was an excellent vehicle for hiking, and was affordable to drive. But, it had a ..read more

While I often write about freeze-drying, our humble dehydrator still comes out often. I much prefer to dehydrate certain items than freeze-dry them. Canned beans are one of those.

The amount of heat this stew/soup has will depend on your curry powder. The stew has a warm, comforting flavor and is chock full. No bland broth here! Using all dehydrated or freeze-dried ingredients, it is a shelf-stable recipe to tuck into your food bag. It’s best prepped as a one-pot method recipe. I have ..read more

It’s 1936, and the USA is deep into the Great Depression. So, no, life is not great for most Americans. However, the companies keep trying recipes that feed a family for very little.
