Jim Bridger's Alarm Clock and Other Tall Tales (A Unicorn Book)
Jim Bridger's Alarm Clock and Other Tall Tales (A Unicorn Book)
by Sid Fleischman
Edition: Hardcover
65 used & new from $0.01

5.0 out of 5 stars A Classic Book of Tall Tales, December 14, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The tall tales will appeal to young kids. Throughout history stories have been told from one generation to the next and have been a bit exaggerated over time. This is a fun book.

5.0 out of 5 stars Snow Peak Titanium Trek 900 Cook Set 900ml, September 29, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
A very nice and light weight cook set for backpacking. When weight is at a premium, this is a very nice set to have and nest with other pots and pans in the Snow Peak line.

Grillmark Leather Gloves for Grilling 17"

5.0 out of 5 stars Grillmark leather gloves for grilling, September 29, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These gloves work great in protecting your hands from the heat while grilling. The gloves are somewhat bulky, but definitely preferable to getting burnt.

5.0 out of 5 stars Quietstover Silent Muter Damper cap for SVEA 123/123R Stoves, September 29, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This damper significantly reduces the noise produced by my SVEA 123 and SVEA 123R stoves. The stove always sounded like a jet engine and it is nice to significantly reduce the noise level. While expensive, this damper does work as advertised.

This review is from: Optimus Terra HE 3 pot Cook Set
Pots have come a long way since I started backpacking in the 1960's. The heat exchanger help cut down the time it takes to heat water or other food in the pot. The set nests very nicely and is lightweight.

Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Mac's Pocket Guide: Glacier National Park, Birds & Mammals is a very nice laminated card that expands to show some very nice pictures so that you can identify both birds and mammals as you hike the trails. I use this guide to supplement some of my other guides for Glacier National Park.

5.0 out of 5 stars Glacier Ghost Stories, September 29, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Glacier Ghost Stories (Paperback)
I read the book cover to cover and am eagerly awaiting my first encounter with a ghost. My wife and I stayed at many of the places noted in this book, including the Belton Chalet, Lake McDonald Lodge, etc., and are still waiting for our first ghost encounter. Some of the stories would make nice camp fire stories.

World Mountaineering : The World's Great Mountains by the World's Great Mountaineers

Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars World Mountaineering: The World's Great Mountains........., September 29, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
A very nice coffee table book with very interesting information on many of the World's Great Mountains. There are some fantastic pictures in this book and the stories being told are very interesting. This is kind of an overview book as it covers many mountains. There are other books that deal with the climbing of particular mountains.


Glacier National Park and Waterton Lakes National Park: A Complete Recreation Guide
Glacier National Park and Waterton Lakes National Park: A Complete Recreation Guide
by Vicky Spring
Edition: Paperback
38 used & new from $0.01

5.0 out of 5 stars Glacier National Park and Waterton Lakes National Park, September 29, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This is a very nice book with lots of valuable information for those intending to visit the Waterton Glacier International Peace Park. This is an older book that was published in 1994. I like to read some of the older books as they will sometimes include information that is not covered in more recent publications. The book is very useful as it gives not only distances, but also elevation gain, high point elevation, difficulty rating, and a time estimate. And of course some of the pictures are not all available in other books so it adds to the information available on particular hikes. There is currently a movement to double the size to Waterton National Park in Canada to include the area on the western slope of the rocky mountains.

5.0 out of 5 stars Eagle Creek Pack-it Protech Cube, September 29, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
These Pack-it-Cubes are padded versions of the basic Pack-it-Cube and work well for electronics and similar items that need added protection. The trick is to pack things tight so that the item in question does not move around. The cube has a Velcro divider that can be moved within the cube to customize it for a particular item(s).
