    I'm speechless. Things seem to be very, very different back east. I hike and camp in the mountains out west and hikers like those described back east would not do well where I go.

    I don't think somebody is an expert backpacker, or experienced camper if they don't know the basics of wilderness survival.

    Actually, beard competitions can be a lot of fun. We have one in my town (a state capitol) every year with around 150 to 200 contestants on average. Check one out sometime!

    What I find funny is that isn't a bucksaw. It's a crosscut saw and if they put some kerosene on that blade it might saw easier.

    I don't think he has either. The Sierras, the Rockies, Idaho, Montana, and Nevada has some of the most remote and lonesome wilderness going.

    Remove the white connective tissue around the heart and slice it up. Let it soak in buttermilk for an hour, dredge it in seasoned flour and fry it. It has a good, salty taste to it.

    Take a pair of fairly tight jeans, stick an unloaded .38 snub in the front pocket and try to sit down. I'll bet you'll have to put your hand in your pocket to move that gun where you can sit.

    Yep, ripped pocket and down your leg. Lets hope you don't try to catch it! There's no holster and it's not tough to trip that trigger.
