Jim Bradley at Husky Hiker has an interesting post about a process called Ion Mask which is used to waterproof all kinds of different products, from outdoor wear to electronics. Also be sure to check out Jim’s seven-part series on geocaching. If you ever wondered what the sport of geocaching was all about, this will explain everything.
I was going to post a list of “last minute stocking-stuffers for campers” today, but when I saw Dan’s post about some new gear he picked-up on Amazon, I thought why reinvent the wheel? He’s got a great list of last-minute gift ideas, including Les Stroud’s book, “Survive!,” Jack Bauer’s (heh) Brunton pocket scope and, one of those great gifts that every outdoor person can use – a beanie!
Adam Shake posted about the plight of Gray Wolves in Michigan. On the comeback from near extinction, the wolves are being illegally hunted in order to protect whitetail deer and local livestock. The environmental news wasn’t all bad this week, though. Adam also posted about 1,000 new species discovered in the Greater Mekong and there are some great pictures in his post.
