Purchased an Osprey 44 liter Talon backpack at REI. Fast becoming a Backpacker. Living off the land should be comfortable after these 6 months on the road. No more shall I encounter the fear of being homeless. Rather, no longer shall I be in fear of the lack of a place to go. The world really does provide if you just open your mind to think about what it is providing you.
So far we have encountered a max low of 21F and a maximum of 'OMG' heavy rain. Still dry, warm, and fat happy ( Well, a skinny dude's version of it). Side note : I've noticed that I do not have to blow my nose at all these last few weeks due to all the abundant 'fresh' air.
Found another really cool camping/tiny house gadget online the other day. It is called a Biolite. Basically it is a rocket stove that has an internal thermo-electric converter. It converts the efficient, smokeless, wood fire's heat into electricity to power its internal fan and something external via USB. Quite a snazzy way to have a fire with forest twigs and electricity past sundown (Solar Photovoltaic).
