I'ts been a long time since I have been on this board. I think my last post was 2011 or so, shortly after we lost Ron and just haven't ever made it back. I've looked through some posts and see some familiar names that made me smile. Good to see everyone.

  Fire with a butter knife and bandana

A most impressive video, bow and drill in wet, snowy conditions.  I think a real lesson for us city folks trying to add to our databank of knowledge.

Plus a thumb-your-nose to all who say that there is never a need to baton your knife.

Plus, a humbling experience for those, like me, who love the custom and high dollar blades.  Smile

  Great new stuff video
Posted by: Tn Ridge Rover - 02-18-2019, 12:36 AM - Forum: Questions and Answers - Replies (7)


Some good stuff in this video that starts with one of our own. Stuff on this video is a pre-made Super Shelter, portable 2.2 lb Rocket Stove, and ferro rods that replace tooth picks or tweezers in a SAK.

I bought the Super Shelter and is in my vehicle kit. The Rocket stove is very interesting. Its a little heavy but includes  a pot and frying pan in a compact kit. Great for watercraft adventures! Gotta have those SAK ferro rods!

My question would be how that Rocket stove would compare with one of those portable gasifier stoves? Lighter, not as portable? Which would be the better burner, the Rocket stove or a gasifier stove?

Wasn't sure where to post this, but good info anyway...…..

  Alternative to butter.
Posted by: Limey Pete - 02-14-2019, 04:15 AM - Forum: Wilderness Cooking Forum - Replies (26)

When out in the wilds, I like bread and butter.
The problem is that butter tends to go rancid quickly, except in cold conditions.
I have been using mayonnaise instead, which is quite tasty, but bulky to carry.
However now I have discovered another option.
Cheese triangles in silver paper, which seem to store a long time without going bad, and are small to carry.
I breakfast in a Lao cafe here in Vientiane, and they serve cheese triangles with the baguettes.
There seems to be two choices: Laughing Cow and Dairylee.

  Centerline Systems Gear
Posted by: Longrifle - 02-05-2019, 05:19 AM - Forum: Backpacking and Gear Testing - Replies (11)

Anyone using Centerline Systems gear for their kit? Mark Laine is awesome to work with and has some well made gear.  I have several of his items and it is incredible.  The mother canteen carrier with a Heavy Cover Titanium canteen and a G2 roll is the ideal minimal kit.  I use his organizer for my maps and journal materials.  He offers several colors too.  If ya haven't heard of it check it out!!!

  The update I promised
Posted by: Longrifle - 02-03-2019, 09:25 AM - Forum: Welcome To The Hoodlums - Replies (9)

So here is a summary of the last few years.  Finally retired from 22 years in Law Enforcement in SO Cal in 2017.  Moved my family up to Eagle, Idaho and have been enjoying life.  Currently working for the Boise Police Department as a Liaison between the Boise Police Department and Security Department at Boise State University.  My son Gunner which some of you may remember who has been at several events since he was little is now graduating high school this year and is an amazing son.  He will be attending BSU this next fall for a Computer Science degree.  My youngest son, Brady will be 13 in April.  My how fast they grow.  

Gunner and Jessie Hood hung out at the Sequoia gathering and it is amazing to see how fast they all grew.  Gunner is 6'2" now and it blows my mind how much of a young man he has become.  God has blessed me with a wonderful wife and sons.   Rebekah is busy with her own craft shop on Etsy which has grown immensely the last few years.   Most of you know I retired from the Navy back in 2004 as well.  Still into all outdoor activities and even more now that I am in Idaho.  The family absolutely love it here.  Still have a knife addiction which most of you here have contributed too.  Thanks!!  LOL.  Attended my first Rabbitstick this last September and got to meet Cody Lundin, David Holliday, David Wescott and many more awesome folks.  Even got to hang with good friend, Allen Jensen who also helped with my knife addiction.  It was really good to see him!!

Anyway just an update.  If anyone is ever in the Boise, Eagle area look me up please.  Thanks again to Karen Hood for keeping this alive and going.  For those who don't know me, I have attended many Hoodlum events and was able to spend some time with  Ron, Karen and Jessie before Ron passed, along with several folks still here.  There is a long list and I thank each and everyone of you for your friendships.  Great folks!  I have met life long friends here and look forward to more.  Any who I will stop rambling!! 

Your all welcome at my fire anytime!!
