I'm going to trade it for some Ti tent stakes. Tell her it had a short almost causing a fire. It wasn't under warranty. I trashed it. Hun, see the new TI tent stakes I have?

    I don't have a wife and I really have a happy life. No problems, Just pack up and go.

    No wife (pasted away 2001), no girlfriend to speak of and the only problem is my hot rod shop and my bar. But I am truly living the dream and I am very happy.
    Oh yea,you really need to try that bread maker. I have one, and find it great. Just dump the ingredients in and it does every thing else. Nothing compares to fresh baked bread.

    I have lots of stuff that was once very useful, but all of it has now been rendered useless because it's all been replaced with much lighter stuff...

    Oh yeah. When I first decided to try this backpack camping thing, I bought a 9 lb surplus pack, a single burner propane stove, MREs... Lots of poor choices.
    Trial and error - and this web forum - have taught me much.

    A backpacking shower recommended by a woman who used hers regularly. I was unable to get it to work.

    A guy I was hiking with talked me into buying Jameson Irish whiskey for my flask when the Cutty ran out. I could have filled that thing three times for what I paid for that stuff! And I wouldn't have had to share so much of it!

    2nd worst thing I ever bought was a Big Agnes blow-up pillow for $30 at Mountain Crossings. Didn't work worth a damn and I wound up carrying it to all the way to Fontana. I kept trying to give it away and it kept boomeranging on me!

    I have to add in an inflatable pillow since someone else mentioned it. I like my Thermarest compressible pillow a lot, or even my Walmart travel pillow. No air pillows for me...they make too much noise

    My inflatable pillow worked well enough I had to buy a second one because my wife/hiking partner swiped the first one.
