    No reason to ban him. He is welcome back anytime to splain things. I really thought that many of his posts were very good, as long as he stayed away from the I live 240 miles from the nearest road and living off grid stuff.

    What gave him away?

    1. Some Alaskans that questioned his posts.
    2. His IP address.
    3. Lack of consistency. You have to remember the first lie to keep telling the same one.
    4. Some outlandish claims.

    armysurpluswarehouse.com is good website and they have a physical location as well in Idaho Falls, ID. I spend hours in there looking around. They have everything from nic nacs and novelties, to surplus items for personal and unit size groups and auto.

    I will second that. I've done quite a bit of business with them lately and they are really good to work with. I wore leather boots the whole time I worked outside and I never found anything warmer than a set of goloshes over my climbing boots in winter. They have the military 3 buckle overshoe for sale for $10.95. They are first rate and a steal at that price. They also have a great price on Atwood 3/8 utility rope.

    Wool, wool, and more wool. Wool is the best and only fabric that I will wear spring, fall, and winter while in the outdoors. Most of my outdoor clothing comes from Goodwill, or the Salvation Army. I also have a Columbia wool hunting coat I got off ebay for 40 bucks. I've been an avid traditional bow hunter for almost 30 years and rarely if ever wear "scamoflauge". I call it that because in my opinion the only animal fooled by camo is us. Most of today's camo is way too busy, the patterns are so tight that when veiwed from a distance they just look like a dark blob. Plus most of the new hunting clothing is made of cotton which is pretty useless if it gets wet. I wear plaid most of the time when hunting, and it works well. The best "camo" is knowing how to play the wind, and knowing when to move.

    Are you kidding me!!!? I love my Steger Mukluks! I have the Apaches, which don't come much higher than my ankles.
    I gave up on BOOTS after I left the National Guard. I love feeling the ground under my feet (-minus the sharp things.)

    You guys are so lucky to be living in the USA. I live in Malaysia, and sometimes we have to mail order whatever outdoor clothes that we want. So sometimes I mail order...but most of time I quietly sneak into an outdoor shop (without the wife's knowledge). I am into Columbia Attires and shoes, HiTech trekking boots, 5.11, Salomon and North Face. But I have to be very careful and buy only those that suits the climate here (Malaysia is right on the Equator) as the humidity here is awful.
    I'm a Gramp who is not computer savvy, give me a slab and the rock ages tablet..I will do fine!

    I get most of my gear from Cabela's or similar stores. I also shop around a lot online to find the best prices.

    I get my gear from a hodgepodge of everywhere. There's an Army Surplus store out in Clayton that I have frequented since I was a kid (GI Joes). Surplus Sids over in Carrboro, NC is a good place if you catch it at the right time. It's not an army surplus store in the typical sense, it looks to me that it buys bulk lots from every type of liquidation and then parts them out. I also frequent the flea market at the NC Fairgrounds.

    If I know exactly what I'm looking for, then I can always order from Amazon.

    There's a Dicks Sporting Goods near where I grew up. I buy stuff there too.
