Re: Exodus 2011

We got up and started packing at 3:30am on Monday, left the site at 5am, and hit pavement at about 8:30am. Hit Reno at noon for a feast at Black Bear Diner which was amazing!

Re: cooling your tent or van

Hey FIGJAM, I met you on Wednesday, we camped next door (had the big van that was parked next to you when you woke up). Thanks again for all the ideas and assistance given in this thread.

Shipped 50 lbs of gear to our friends in CA, finished attaching fur to coat, missing 12v batteries showed up in mail and are now charged to power bike light system.

Re: Glowies, Blinkies, UVies & Other Illuminations

Thanks BBadger, that is very helpful! I've ordered two PS-1250's and a PS-1270 from Power-Sonic (and a sweet smart charger) so I'm thinking that should be good to go. Hardest part now is tracking the package and hoping it gets here by next Wednesday when I need to ship the bulk of my gear to the lef...

Re: Glowies, Blinkies, UVies & Other Illuminations

I wanted to build a cool blink/light system for my bike and decided to go with a variable sequencer and 7-10 strands of EL-Wire. After lots of search and solo deliberation I went for equipment from http://www.coolight.c...

Re: Eureka's Equinox 6 or Cabela's Alaskan Guide tent?

Just picked up the Eureka Equinox 6 yesterday after a lengthy conversation with the fine folks at Hilton's Tent City in Boston. Save quite a few $$ vs. the Cabela's but it's probably not quite as awesome, the main difference being the lack of large vestibule that the Alaskan Guide has. Anyway, tent ...
