Thomas's Bio

love to be outdoors, with my 5 year old son. I have a new born as well who I can't wait to show the back county to.

I love this chair, it sits low to the ground, great for gathering around campfire. The seating position makes you want to nod off when you sit down. Almost like the lazy boy of camp chairs. Holds up great to me and my kids, barely any signs of wear. The only thing missing is a cup holder, but due to the design of the chair, it would be hard to incorporate one. It also folds up nice a neat like the other chairs we have.

It sits a little lower to the ground which to me is more comfortable. Nice mesh backing to keep airflow to your back which is important in Southern California. So far it is holding up great. Although my wife and i don't weigh 300 lbs, our kids like to jump on our laps and it has held up to it. Cup holder is great, although I wish it would be big enough to hold a nalgene. Cups and cans fit just fine though. I like the little cooler deal on the other arm, keeps my drinks cool and close.

All in all, nice chair, sturdy and comfortable.

I loved my gopro, I love my gopro2 even more. Does everything the first one did, but better. I do a lot of car racing so I got the motorsports version. But I have all sorts of attachements for it. My only gripe is that you have to pay $7 just for a tri pod mount. Then you have to buy the tripod on top of that. Gopro has a way of nickel and dimeing you, but hey, it is still a great camera.

I liked it but too spicy for my sons taste, a little runny too. But every one has a different palate. I still buy them though, when I can, but my local retailer is always out of these, so they are pretty popular. I would recommend them to change it up a bit from the Chili Mac and the Lasagna though. I tend to get those three on a long weekend, and put this in the middle between the two dishes with pasta which keeps my tongue guessing.

My son loves the mini version, but we needed a longer sock for him too. He has a few pairs of these and works them hard. He loves them not only for the back country but for school too. They have plenty of 6 year old miles on them and they hold up great too. I highly recommend these for any little dudes and dudettes you have.

While it sounds like a potato chip bag, this pad is comfy. I got my wife one and she loves it, it is light weight, the warmth is there, at least down to the mid 20's when we used it and she slept great. Lighter and just as comfy if not more comfy than my BA pad.

The pump and stuff sack, while a cool idea add extra un-needed weight. The stuff sack included with it is too big, I assume to help use as a pump. So we only use that for storage when not in use.

A great pad, for a great nights sleep.

After getting this with the solar charger, I tend to use these for most of the house hold electronics since I can just recharge the battery. They can charge both the AA or the AAA but make sure you have the little adapter piece. Via solar, it takes 2 to 2.5 hours to achieve full charge, via USB it charges in under 1.5 hours.

The "T" comes pre-loaded with topo maps so you don't have to go out and buy any. Compact and light weight yet still easy to use and read in most light conditions. Batteries go a bit quicker than I'd like but I have a solar charger for that. Camera isn't the best at only 3.2 mp, but I used to map my hikes with my cell phone and take pics with it too, and the camera on that is only 3.2, so no changes there. The cool thing is it tags the photos with the location and on top of that it is now a multi-use piece of equipment so you don't have to carry a GPS and a camera. Finds satellites fast, comes with a caribiner to easily clip to the back of your pack. Looks to be built tough, but I haven't tested that yet, but looks really stout.
