Emberlit Vs Solo Stove Lite

You’ve meticulously thought of every detail—gear, route, food, medical supplies.

You plan to begin hiking just before sunbreak.

You’ll traverse rivers, scale hills and teeter along the passes between them. Eventually it’ll be time to set up camp for the day, and your mind will turn towards that well-deserved meal.

The question is: which wood-burning stove should you use to prepare it? That’s the terrain we’re going to cover today.

Let’s put the Solo Stove Lite and the Emberlit wood-burning stoves to the test to see which one deserves to light your fire.

Best Arrow Puller

Damaging your arrows is easy without the proper equipment.

When pulling an arrow out of a target, for most, your only option is to grasp the arrow from the shaft with your hand and try to yank it out. This can give you difficulty with an especially rooted arrow.

If an arrow is to deeply embedded into the target, trying to pull it out by hand can cause unnecessary stress on both your arm or arrows.

By wiggling a planted arrow, or if you don’t pull it out the same way it went in, the shaft of the arrow can bend causing its accuracy to degrade with each successive shot.

Best Packing Cubes For Osprey Farpoint 40

Bringing everything you need on a trip may cause dilemmas.

From keeping organized while packing to the frustration when what you’re looking for is scattered or buried beneath clothes and toiletries. Getting things together for backpacking has to be done efficiently to make sure all necessities are accounted for out in the wild.

This can prove especially frustrating when backpacking because of how valuable efficient time-use can be and because the space available in nature around you may be limiting.

Using packing cubes can revolutionize the way you pack and efficiently organize the space in your luggage. There is no hassle when you are attempting to find a specific item when they are purposely separated in their own packing cubes.

Sizes vary and each set will have unique characteristics that reflect different people’s lives.  So in this post, we’ll look at five of the best packing cubes for the Osprey Farpoint 40 backpack to help you make the right choice.

WaterBOB Vs AquaPod

How often do you think about what you’ll need in an emergency situation, like a natural disaster? Food and shelter quickly come to mind. So does a planned evacuation route and access to emergency services.

You’ve probably also made sure that you have a way to bring your pets with you. And maybe you’ve even stowed away some of your most valuable possessions—just in case.

But it’s easy to overlook one crucial thing, perhaps because we’re all so used to having it: clean, fresh, potable water.

You can run out of gas and hitch a ride with someone else. You can even run out of food, and you’ll be okay for a while. But if you run out fresh water then that’s a real emergency.

So, with the increasing frequency of severe weather events, it’s a good idea for everyone to think about emergency water storage.

In this review I’m going to compare the AquaPod to the WaterBOB. Both are emergency water containers that can mean all the difference in an emergency situation.

So let’s take a closer look at both to find out which one is better for you.

Roccbox Review

Tired of cooking my favorite pizzas and calzones in my oven, I wanted a change of pace.

I decided to give outdoor pizza ovens a try.

Maybe it’s the strange design of the Roccbox,  but I thought I’d veg out on pizza while watching some of my favorite sci-fi movies.

It seemed fitting…right?

But it wasn’t just the unique design that intrigued me.

One thing that immediately sets outdoor pizza ovens from your typical indoor oven is that they usually reach cooking temperatures faster. Some can do it in 10 minutes, others may take a little longer but it’s usually no longer than 30 minutes.

But that’s not all.
