Whaddaya Do When Winter Camping?
#76
Thank you and thank you again.

I love a good fire.

And a good joke.

And it would be a dangerous thing if I was easily offended considering I am almost always carrying a blade.

Wouldnt it? <img src='http://www.hoodswoods.net/IVB/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/wink3.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':wink3:' />

ok i have to ask what made the radioshack radio superior to the grundig?

because if the radioshack was THAT much better ill look for one on ebay or something.



i remember the grundig being named one of products of the year this year (i think in consumer reports or good housekeeping).



so id think its pretty good, better then the kaito model listed which i own, mind you i DO live in new york where reception is probably terrible regardless but with the exception of the local am/fm stations i couldnt pick up a damn thing on the kaito.



and thats even after testing it at night and on high rooftops etc, reception was always terrible for me.

They are about the same volume (space), weight, and same price (when available). These were the high points:



The RS has AM/FM/Shortwave/Weather.

The RS has rounded edges, easier to get in/out of a pack.

The RS has completely useless audible alarm; buy a whistle.



The light was a little more useful in the Grundig.

No WX channel.

I always wondered about that. Never had the opportunity to try it myself. Sounds great while you are in the hot springs but what happens when you get out?

Actually, if your in a hot enough spring, you stay warm afterwards for quite some time. The last time I ran barefooted back to the tent (100 yrds give or take) because I was so hot. One of the ones I generally frequent runs about 110 degrees so you stay pretty toasty...and really, half the time your part of the way out because of the temp...my happy stays plenty happy! <img src='http://www.hoodswoods.net/IVB/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Big Grin' /> Of course, I have a small tent heater too, so it stays above freezing most of the time inside.

remote hot springs and a sheepherders tent... your wife must be one happy camper! (pun intended)
#83
how big is a sheepherder tent? i did a search on them but only found sheepherder stoves for tents.

NY Rat, it really varies....Mine is 10'x12' I believe Cabellla's still sells them. The past few times I've gone out, I've only used my small 3 person dome tent...with a propane

heater (the type with the CO filter) easier to set up...and stays almost as warm.

A little common sense can go long ways sometimes, thanks for the info.

Wow, some of you guys are brave, combining blades with ..um.. other activities, I'd likely slip and "whiddle my dinky"
