    A day with Bluefin

    Hey gang, I went out snowshoeing a few days ago. Cooked up some lunch on a Minibulldesigns Mini-Sith alcohol stove and tried out my new squishy bowl and cup. After lunch I relaxed in my day hiking hammock for a while. The squishy bowl and cup worked well and even nestled into my MSR Titan kettle pot. I want to get a bigger tarp for my HH ULBA before I spend the night out in winter. At the present time I only have the stock diamond HH tarp and that is too small for the winter. I'm thinking about the AHE Toxaway Tarp for that.

    Here is a six minute video from the day trip. Enjoy !

    Check out post #5 below by Shug, the video is there now. Thanks Shug, Bluefin

    Bluefin; nice to see you out snowshoeing and enjoying the woods. I was out shoeing on a snowy day yesterday only when i got to camp i had my windscreen but my tarp had popped out of the side pocket somewhere along the trail. Fortunately it stopped snowing so i setup anyway. On the return trip i did find the tarp having a snooze in the snow. I'll have to snug it in better next time. Thanks for sharing.

    If you look at your quoted part of Shug's post ... you've got the full link between the "YOUTUBE" in brackets ... plus the "/YOUTUBE" on the right side is missing it's lead bracket. All you need is the bracketed "YOUTUBE" on the left of "9GWrSeZjIZQ" ... which is the part of your link right of the equal sign ... and the bracketed "/YOUTUBE" on the right. Bracketed I mean "[ ]".

    Hope that helps
