    Solo Oahu Trip - Suggestions

    Thanks for the suggestions so far, I’m going to look into renting some flats fishing gear and maybe a half day guide. Never done that before.

    Solo Oahu Trip - Suggestions

    Without going into the why and all the family drama that goes along with it, I have to be on Oahu solo for 10 days in May. Tough problem to have, I know, but I am looking for suggestions on things to do and places to stay. I am trying to avoid having a rental car and don't mind more "spartan"...

    Camera Chest Rig Help

    I use a B-Grip Uno on my pack strap. I like that is longer than the Peak Design clip because it doesn’t flop around as much. They also make a tripod quick release adapter so you can go from strap to tripod without removing the plate...

    2013 F150 experience?

    Original owner of a 2013 Lariat 4x4 3.5l ecoboost 6.5’ bed with just shy of 90k on it. Only major issue I’ve had is the front 4wd system. It’s a vacuum based hub engagement and if you get a crack in the line it can cause partial engagement and strip the hub gears. You won’t really know it’s...

    Cooler Ice Block Molds

    We use the Costco milk jugs, they are rectangular and don’t taper at the top like a regular milk jug. Thick cap too.

    Condensation Inside Bivy Sack

    I’ve got a handful of nights in a Borah Bivy and a 20* El Coyote quilt. Friday it got down to 35* with fog so lots of moisture in the air. I noticed a lot of condensation at the top 1/3 from my breathing, tended to scoot down away from the netting at the top as it got cold. But the quilt was...

    Christmas Trees

    We hunt for our Christmas tree every year, but the Dixie Fire torched all of the good spots and the silver tips. Will have to do a tree farm this year I guess.

    2021 California Bear

    Finally saw a bear in the wild, but it was a sow with two cubs at 1500 yards. Beautiful cinnamon coloring. Might get another chance before the season ends if I’m lucky. handheld iPhone through the binoculars:

    FORLOH

    Good: pieces seem quality and I would definitely look to FORLOH first to see if they offer what I am looking for. Bad: the pants are too short as a few others have mentioned. Length is not listed on the sizing chart but for the medium pants I was told it’s a 32” inseam. I usually wear 32”...

    Hiking/trail/ everyday shoe

    Looking for a replacement for my 3+ year old Salomon XA Pro 3D right now that were my daily shoes so this is timely. Might try the Xero Mesa Trail as the Merrill Vapor Glove 4 I just picked up at the outlet store fit funny for me. My big toe was dead center of the shoe and all my other toes were...

    FORLOH

    I finally took the dive on Forloh, ordered the Allclima 3L rain jacket and pants. Its usually really hot and dry when I hunt so all of my gear is warm weather focused, but with an upcoming storm I took the opportunity to splurge on some gear that was missing from my kit. Fingers crossed it...

    Scammed by "PayPal"?

    I would suggest not using PayPal, especially for hunting or hunting-adjacent items. If you violate their terms of service they can debit your account $2,500 per violation. I’ve had an account for years but deleted it last week when I read a story about someone losing >$10,000 for selling legal...
