    Hi Luke! I must say, i really love your videos, especially your overnighters. I like the part when you sit by the fire and tell your stories. I usually get to escape from family life once a month and go out and camp. Sometimes i bring my daughter (4 year old) and we spend the nights in shelters. Hope you have some more overnight videos coming soon! And i just want to tell you that both you and your family is amazing!

    Hi Luke, Susie and kids, Your channel as well as you all are great. I am a beginner on TVclip France, because I’m a french woman of 63, you just saw Susie in Colorado and the way you hike. I’m living in the Alps (you would enjoy!), and 10 days ago I learned to hike without any physical problem, with a man who used to have a very level in cross-country ski: make very shorts nots, the more it is steep, the you have to make them short. This man, Pierre, is very tall, but when it is steep his nots are about 5cm (about 2 inch). You can see on my last vidéo « Rando de l’ours » (Hike of the bear), my backpack was about 15 kg and I didn’t have had any aches, breathing or heart problem. If you are interested, my backpack is an Exped 60W, for woman, only 1,1kg, great quality but, Exped send me a man belt because the one for woman did’nt cover my hips bones and hurt me very much after the first use. Pierre was bluff by all the gear I wore! I’m preparing for a challenge, next spring I will make a bicycle touring to the North Cape in Norway, camping along my way and I don’t find the something I saw in you video, little telescopic gear to blow on the fire. Could you tell me how to have one? This trip will last at least 5 months so I will have to cook, Moutain House etc is too expensive. I’am about the firebox with the Zebra pot kit that cook as an oven, not sure you allready tried…or will do it! :-) Thanks for all your videos and adventure.

    This type of hiking is exactly what im looking to get into. I've hiked and camped in plenty of state parks. But I'm looking for something remote and isolated. Hike in, camp, hike out. Any way to just go at it or do you have to go through the state park websites?

    I'm forced to do everything on a budget, so I'm constantly looking for good and inexpensive kit. I noticed that you guys did a camp out with an Ohuhu tent, what do you think of their sleeping bags? I'm considering getting the double so my girl and I can share. Also I usually head off into the woods with a small group, and there is so much extra gear to take, especially since we're going for several days at a time, and in a part of the country with dangerous game. So we all go armed, so now we've got weapons, ammo, cleaning kits, extra food, water, cloths, its just so much stuff in the end. I sometimes feel like I should be rigging a backpack to sit on my front too, then I think of those Airborne guys about to jump into Franch on D-Day. It makes me want to laugh, because I remember what the airborne troops called it, instead of Operation Overlord, it became known to those guys as Operation Overload. I had an unusual idea and I'd love to heard your thoughts on it. I thinking of vacuum sealing thinks like my cloths and sleeping bag so that 1st they won't take up so much room in my pack, and 2nd it'll add a layer of waterproofing. What are your thoughts on this??

    First just let me say that I've only been watching your TVclip videos for about two weeks know, and I love them. Thanks to some of your product reviews I was finally able to settle on a stove mess kit I liked. I'm now using the surplus Swedish kit only I added a usgi canteen cup to mine, and I also picked the swiss m71 stove as a small/compact backup. Also thanks to your review I'm going to tryout one of those pocket bellows, I had never even heard of such a product before. Please keep up the good work you guys. I'd like to see your reviews on a couple of items for you military surplus section. The first item is the British army 120 Liter internal frame backpack (mine is in the classic DPM camo), and the other item is the Austrian Army field knife which is made by glock, they're supposed to be very well made.

    Hi Luke, when will you be doing the review on the Carinthia Micro Tent. Really want to get one but holding off until I see your review. Thanks Luke!

  • Richard Bucker
    Richard Bucker Year ago

    WOW the discussion is very old... One reason I have a garage full of gear is because I cannot decide whether to take the red or green pill. I watch some of the videos and I see a bias toward ultralite gear. Then I watch another video and I see some kit that is clearly NOT ultralite. Then I see some videos where people talk about mosquito netting during the season, condensation in others, and then the challenges of uneven ground. Worse yet is that I live in Florida and most hiking videos tend to address hiking in areas where the temps are more moderate. I can sleep in the buff in the mid 60s and long johns in the lower. And a modest blanket in the 50s. YEP there is a lot to consider And so here is my latest challenge.... "Tarps Plus" has popped up in my google searches for quite some time and so has 2Go Systems. 2GO sells a 10x10" tarp with reflective coating for $104 and weighs 23oz. Tarp Plus sells a 10x10' with UV coating for $17 but it weighs in at 54oz. TP also sells a 10x10' blackout tarp for $21. (grommets every 18". What makes me crazy is the weight, cost, and durability. One of the neat things about the TP is its versatility. And when sharing the trail with others there are midnight potty breaks and flashlight glow. I hope you find this interesting enough to do your own shootout.

    Hey Luke, if you have never done a video on or built the super shelter you should check out Mors Kochanski Super Shelter video. Mors is credited as being the inventer of the super shelter. i have used the shelter a few times and it works great. to the question, would you consider doing a video on the super shelter on one of your winter treks? thanks

  • Machine Gunfun
    Machine Gunfun Year ago

    Hay Luke! Just wanted to say thanks for all you do! Plus was wondering, I am looking for a good sleeping bag, I do not like confined spaces, But live in new England. Its cold here most of the time lol. To make it worse, I'm on a tight budget. I have 4 kids and live paycheck to pay check. I would like it to fit into my back pack. I have a alps mountaineering caldera 5500. Its something like 70 liters. I don't do a lot of long hikes, but do weekend adventures. I also use a slumber jack daybreak 2 for a tent. I was looking for your recommendation?

    Hello, I would like to know the Thru-Hiker's take on the Bug Out Bag, SHTF Bag or INCH Bag. I have been watching some of these TVclip Videos on Bug Out Bags, SHTF Bags, I'm Never Coming Home Bags etc... Some of them have Packs the size of a small houses with everything including the Kitchen Sink to rebuild a new society in the woods. Or their packs are the size of a women's pocketbook and solely relying on bush crafting skills for long term survival in the wilderness. It seems to me no one has ever talked to a Long Distance Hiker or avid Backpacker on this subject before putting out their advice on the web. Some of them have a few good points but they all lack a lot of fatal flaws like no Shelter/Sleeping System, pack weight is over what an average man can carry long distances. It is obvious that they have never gone backpacking longer than an overnight in their back yards with their setup and I am pretty sure that if they were to try they would probably die shortly on the trail under neither the weight of their parks or from hyperthermia wraps in a Mylar blanket under a debris hut in the middle of winter. I am a retired army veteran working in corrections now. I have served over seas in war torn Kosovo and Iraq and earthquake destroyed Haiti; so I have seen what happens in a major disaster and collapse of civilization. I am not a Doomsday Prepper or Survivalist but bugging out in a "Zombie Apocalypse" is a topic of discussion among friends and co-workers. We are all big fans of "The Walking Dead" show. I have recently gotten into Ultralight Backpacking and due to my preferred comfort level my total pack weight is usually around 35 to 45 pounds with food & Water for a 3 day trip on the AT. Trying to come up with a worst case scenario Pack setup that is Realistic for long term survival and able to be carried for long distances by an average over weight, out of shape war veteran is quite daunting. Plus the thought of running out of Coffee in a zombie apocalypse is a major concern for me, seriously... I would like to know what your pack setup would be in a worst case scenario where your were forced to leave your home on foot and survive on the Appalachian Trail indefinitely. Thank you,

  • The Thankful Woodsman

    Loving your channel. I just moved to the Upper Peninsula of Michigan and the outdoors are just never ending here, so I wanted to get more into hiking and camping. I searched your video's first, but didn't find anything pertaining specifically to dogs. I have a big dog that I would have to take with me on some of my overnight trips and just wondered if you had some recommendations.

    I love your channel. I have been watching your survival box reviews. The battle box really interest me. I travel for work around the country and my wife and 2 kids stay at home. I was look to beef up my shtf gear with a monthly box subscription and was wondering if you think battle box is a good choice for my family. This would be for my wife to get out of populated area and wait for me to meet up. I am ex military and am confident in my skills and my wife is semi trained in survival skills. I was thinking of the top tier box monthly. Would love to know what you think. Thanks and love the channel.

    Hi Luke and family, I've been following your channel for a while, and appreciate all the insight, my first solo overnight was made a lot less intimidating after watching all the overnight adventures on this channel. I have been wondering something. you made a video in 2014 highlighting the Zpacks Arcblast, yet you never took it on an adventure, at least not one that was posted. what's more is I've noticed you haven't had an ultralight overnight adventure; at least not one that i could find. any chance you could do one while the summer keeps the heavy sleeping bags and jackets out of your pack? p.s. i'd just like to add on a more personal note, that your family's energy, love and optimism is inspiring and restores my faith in humanity. thank you. strength and honor guys.

Though excited about it, I must admit I'm somewhat new to the overnite hiking/backpacking thing. I have a hike coming up, and really trying to to my homework on a good pack. I was wodering if you could point me in the direction of a good hiking backpack that wasn't all out tactical, but still utilized the "molle" strap system. I really like the osprey atmos, but wish it had the molle straps on it. Help brutha!!! LOL. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    Hey Luke, I just wanted to fire off a thank you note for an item you had used on one of your videos. You had used the Trioxane Fire Starter to heat up a cup of coffee or something, and I being a camping geek that I am, had to have it. I have many different fire starting items just like everyone does, we have to have our toys after all! But I’m glad I did have one of these in my fire starting kit today. My nephew and I went up into the brush at Mt Henning BC, Canada to find a place to set up a couple winter shelters for the season. My 18 year old nephew decided when coming across a river, the best way to cross it would be to run real fast. Well, it was deeper and faster than he thought it was and he went in soaking his clothes. It’s just below freezing, and snowing so not the best time for an unexpected swim. We found a spot to get a fire going under a large spruce tree, and ripped open the trioxane. Took the first spark from my fire steel, and that was it. It burned long and hot enough to get small branches over top dried out and going. He was able to dry out his clothes and still able to make a day of it out in the woods. You always have great advice on products and just wanted to say thanks for all the great work you are doing. Keep it up. I’m pretty sure if I didn’t have that fire starter it would have been a short lived outing. And there’s nothing better than spending time out in the mountains when it’s snowing out! Talk about relaxing. Chet

    hey Luke I live in southern Cali and I am getting into over night backpacking and I was wondering if you had any advise on desert backpacking. I have watched a lot of your videos and I see you do most of your backpacking where it is mostly green. I am just wondering if you have any experience?

That's what I do on my channel. I'm going to make some winter backpacking videos soon as soon as it start to snow here in Colorado. I'm also going to make some ice climbing videos and mountaineering videos too! I will post them. Second question. What kind of GPS do you use and why. What kind do you recommend for me?

    Hey Luke, If you are interested in some good coffee, I recommend you check out some coffee from Cost Plus Worlds Market. They offer a great variety of coffee with different flavors and are really good. I recommend you check out Bourbon coffee. Its really good and it smells great. Don't let the name fool you but it is really good. If not, there are other really good types of coffee out there that you can purchase in which are really good. Hope you are well. - John

  • Alex Lapsys
    Alex Lapsys 3 years ago

    Hello, First off, I really appreciate your professional, thorough videos. There aren't many like yours out there. I've been looking into backpacks recently, and have been looking extensively. I'm looking for a backpack suited for overnight trips (1-5 days or so), but also suited for day trips. 40L-55L seems to fit this well. I've narrowed down my sights to four backpacks. The Karrimor SF Sabre 45, the Kelty Redwing 50, the LK 35, and Fjallraven's Kaipak 38. The Karrimor has great looks, as I'm looking for something that doesn't look ultra-civilian, yet also not screaming military. I'm 6'2", and I've heard that this bag may sit a bit too high on tall people. The frame is also some foam insert, which doesn't seem as reliable as some of the aluminum frames I've heard of. That said, it can easily be a daypack, and with the attachments, you can get 70 liters out of it. This is mainly why I'm attracted to it, but then there's the Kelty. This bag, though with some good, subdued colors, seems a little too civilian. It's top loading, sure, but with zippers. I want to keep zippers minimal. The padding seams way better on this bag, though. The aluminum frame sounds better than foam. However, there's no way to expand it in the future. The Fjallraven, though also civilian looking, has styling I prefer over the Kelty's. The frame seems good, and so does the padding. No worries about colors. The 38L is an understandable price($200), but 38L just doesn't seem like enough. There's a 58L version, but this is $300, which I just won't pay for a backpack. The LK 35 just seems a bit too small I've seen many of your videos on backpacks, and your insight on this would mean so much to mean. This has been gnawing at me for a while now. Many thanks!

    Hey Luke, please do a story on keeping your gear dry when you only have a light weight Bivy and nothing else, specifically keeping large backpacks dry. I'm just evaluating my own gear. My Oz-Trail Biker Bivy (5kg) is fantastic heavy duty quality but way too bulky for hikes or biking. Just grabbed a Blackwolf Stealth Bivy (1.1kg), cant wait to get it. Also dragged out all the tents i've amassed over the years or decades, one got sacrificed and became a ground sheet/tarp due to rott, another 2 I dont ever believe were even mine (who knows, someones swapped on me). One has split fibreglass poles, and chucked two out keeping the Fly which come in very handy.

    Hey Luke, love your videos!! I was just going to say, if you are ever looking for somewhere new to hike you should try the Ouachita Mountains. I did a 24 mile loop recently in Oklahoma and it is a really awesome area. The Ouachita Trail is the longest east-west trail in the US at 230+ miles. A friend and I did a segment called the Boardstand-Old Military Loop. There is a really popular 26 miler in the Ouachitas called the Eagle Rock Loop that is pretty amazing as well. People forget that there are mountains in Oklahoma and Arkansas but they are really great! There are lots of great videos on the Eagle Rock Loop and I have a video of the Boardstand-Old Military Loop. I would love to see a video in the area done by you!! Good Luck and keep up the awesome reviews and Adventures!!

    lastdollarfilms 3 years ago

    I'm hoping you can suggest something or things that might help me ease into hiking again. My short story is I was injured about 16 years ago and am really out of shape. To get back in shape I want to start hiking but I will need to take it very slow at first. Even in the beginning I want to carry a backpack with a days gear assuming I am hiking a trail in a park. Might carry a hammock too. So what pack and or budget gear would you suggest for a day hiker that wants to keep it as light as possible. Any advice at all is welcome. Thanks, Dale

    • TheOutdoorGearReview
      TheOutdoorGearReview 3 years ago

      +lastdollarfilms Since you are getting back into the hiking world again, I won't waste much time talking about which gear you should get because I don't know you. I don't know your tastes or even what gear would work for you but I will suggest this; try on some packs at an outfitter to make sure that you get the right fit for you. From there it's time to hit the trails. Head out, have fun and do what you can do. Like you said yourself, start slow and enjoy it brother. If you need any further help, I'm happy to help. - Luke

    Hey hey, Luke! I've been hooked on your videos since last summer, but since I hate Google so much, I only subscribed to your channel a couple weeks ago. First off, I just wanted to thank you for inspiring me to get off my butt and getting my stuff together so I can go camping again. Anyway, I've been researching a slick looking tent made by 12 Survivors, called the Shire 2P, and the more I look at it, the more I want to go ahead and buy it. It's a 3 season 2 person tent with aluminum poles, weighing in at 5.7 pounds, and the best part is, the dual vestibules can be turned into awnings with the addition of either trekking poles or sticks. 12survivors.com is asking $119.96 for the tent, but both Walmart and Amazon are offering it for $100. However, since I'm still new to camping and want to start backpacking when I can get back in shape(4 degenerated discs and a hernia repair patch big enough to cover my cell phone), I was wondering if you could give your opinion on the tent itself and possibly any thoughts on shaving off some weight. Thanks bro.

    Hey Luke! I recently took up hiking and camping etc. You have been a real inspiration to me, showing your enthusiasm within this category. I was thinking about buying a new tent(since my old one is already broken, despite being about 2 months old(costed med about 300 swedish kr, which is about 37$... Not a big shock that it broke really..)). I was thinking about a "Snugpak Scorpion 3". And it would be absolutely awesome if you perhaps would make a preview/review/test of that tent?

There are bears, wolfs and wild boars living in the area i am going to camp. And i am pretty sure i will shit my pants if i encounter with a wolf, cant imagine what will i do with a pack. Any advice?

    Hey Luke I have been thinking about something for the past week that I would like to see you put out. A video reviewing basic styles/types of hiking boots / shoes. For someone just starting to get back into bush craft, I don't want to have to purchase a bunch of different boots/shoes to cater to every season and weather I may encounter on different trips. Maybe some waterproof boots could also be used for winter boots? or even hunting boots?. Maybe consider putting in some information about socks as well as they may help increase the window of usefulness of a single pair. Thanks for all the great work you put into your videos. I always enjoy them!

    Just realised once again the importance of good batteries taken along on trips for thngs like Torches. Specifically i'm talking about high maH rated batteries. For example carring a single set in your torch that are 2400mah AAA will outlast and out perform those cheap and nasty 750mah batteries that look like bargains. ;-) You should do a little video on it.

      +TheOutdoorGearReview I do have one complaint.... small one. I have a smart TV and its helpful when you create playlists and link similar videos together. The example of this is when I want to watch Overnight Adv or product test I go to the playlists and watch it and you do have a bunch set up this way but I noticed a lot are not categorized. When they are set up as just uploads I have to just keep pushing the arrow till I find a video but if you have a cool gem from your early days I will prob miss it unless I am on my PC. I am totally being lazy here and prob just need to get off the couch! I don't want to complain too much because it is a great channel. Keep up the good work.

    Luke, I have a request for you that I think you will get more views than any video you have made. If a person was to come to you and say Luke, tell me every piece of equipment I will need for a 5 day pack trip. From socks & shoes, pack, bag, tent, cup, camera, lights, etc. You get my drift. The bigger point is, the very best performance for dollar. Yes I can buy a $300 dollar pack but what is the best pack for best value. You could provide your top 2 picks for everything. Then of course you take that exact kit and do your trip. This is a hard order to fill. Think about it. The fictitious questions is: Luke my house burned down and everything I own is lost. I'm scheduled to leave on a back pack trip in 3 weeks. I need everything for my 5 day trip, even your nasty beans. Ateam

      Wasn't a house burning down, but had to put together a full kit for a city guy when the airline lost all his luggage on his way to link up with us for a week-long wilderness canoe trip in the Canadian bush -- and he arrived at 10 p.m. to our little airport. Three of us from the group went home, dug into our gear closets and had him geared up and in the car by midnight -- and it all worked. Lesson: don't always worry about what is best (the airline had this guy's brand-new "best" and he got our leftovers/also rans), just make sure you have something to work with and make the most of it.

      +ateamNM Hahah Nasty Beans? Wha Wha What? Haha Thanks for the suggestion my friend; I will put some thought into this and will see what I can do. The only issue is this; there are so many factors that go into 'which is the best gear' because everyone is so incredibly different; different needs, different environments, etc. That makes it very difficult to say this is the best _______ for the money. Be well and take care, - Luke

    Hey Luke im pretty sure on your last day hike you mentioned talking about making a video of the gear you used during the trip. Anyway im looking for some pants. Pants for summer and winter. You see Bear wearing these waterproof light pants during hot adventures and almost the same pants waterproof for cold weather adventures. I know craghoppers are making his pants but id really like to see a review of some pants a pair for hot but good when it gets wet and pair of pants that do good in the cold but also when wet. I live in the pacific northwest (Oregon) and its either hot and wet or cold and wet weather we deal with and im looking for something that would work for me. I know 1 pair isn't going to cover both hot and cold but id love to see a pair for hot weather and a pair for cold weather.

    Hi Luke My name is Kim and I am from Denmark, I just want to say I think good about your canal, as well as your Adjusting to be in the wild. we are a family of 8 who enjoy nature, we stay a part in shelters in Denmark or we take a trip to Norway and Sweden to hike in the mountains or canoeing on rivers. finally, I would say keep up the good work with your youtub channel. best regards kim

    Hey there Luke. I have recently started a Wilderness Survival Facebook page. I am knew to making youtube videos and I could use some tips. I could use some ideas and help. What videos should I make to start out? What program do you use to make your videos? I would really appreciate the help! God bless and keep doing what you are doing!

    I was woundering if you would consider doing a deal with the Army cold weather/wet weather system ECWCS III? I have used this system and have grown to like it. I also feel its a little bulky but then again I have yet to use it in the field.

    Luke, maybe you're addressed it in some of your other videos but have you considered the Level 5 PCU softshell system? I know Orc, Patagonia, etc make some high-end versions but there are some Chinese reproductions (Much like Condor) that come in for under $100 for the set. Just a suggestion for you to do whatever you will with it.

    Luke...Got a question you might be able to answer. My wife got a new laptop and she downloaded Movie Maker 2012 so she can edit our videos. The audio plays but the screen is black and we can't see the video. We've not figured out how to get it work. We've googled the issue but with no resolution. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks from The Hoosier Hiker Channel.

    Hello, I like your videos, but I have a request...if you will pardon me.

I am here in Hartford and for the past year I have been unable to find any classes in my area. thanks.

    Hey Luke! I was looking for your review on hammocks. I'm considering using one for next season as I'd like to try using a daypack for overnighters. My large pack is just too big and I ALWAYS overpack! I know you've done at least one review. Please help me! Haha. As always, love the videos. Mike

    These socks have served me well. I bought these about 9 months ago also and I love them. These socks are almost knee high and provide extra cushion in the sole. I wear these socks not only for the Army but at my job with my work boots. At work I stand for almost 12 hours at a pop. www.amazon.com/USOA-MILITARY-SURPLUS-ANTI-MICROBIAL-Medium/dp/B00IT2MTK0/ref=sr_1_5?ie=UTF8&qid=1415853550&sr=8-5&keywords=army+socks

    just picked up a generation 1 ILBE but it came with tan buckles. i contacted the seller and his response was "Generation 1 packs normally have buckles colored black, but on some they are colored tan but still fit the gen 1 buckles" I was wondering if you had any knowledge on the matter

    Hi Luke, I just came across some meal products from Cache Lake. They have a couple cold prep options so you don't even have to boil water. Thought this might be great for a quick meal setting up camp, if something prevents building a fire, or in heat conditions. Some of the hot meals and breads sound good too. Have you ever tried them?

Now I'm older and my son is getting into it, so I've began doing it again.. I saw on one of your videos you had a T.O.G.R patch.. Can your viewers buy them or was it special made.. Again thanks for all your hard work in making these vids

    OK, not sure how to do a private post (I don't want it to seem like I am advertising on your channel) but if you have a chance to look at my channel I posted a howl video for you.

  • Explorers Of The Wild

    I originally posted this as a comment on your Tmart tactical backpack vid, but than thought it'd be better to repost here- nice video, I think it's still good to see the review, even if the product is sub-par at best. If you could I'd (as others I'm sure) would like to see you do a review on the USGI Alice pack? I'd say the medium size as it seems to be more popular than the large. Or maybe a side by side review of both medium and large Alice packs to give folks some insight on which to choose. If you have the time and don't mind I think it would be a great video. thanks

    Luke, 1) Love the videos, I find them inspiring and I love the positive energy that you seem to possess. It seems that nothing drags you down, and I think that's rare and awesome in a person! 2) I was just wondering about your camera/tripod setup. Any chance for a review on what you use? I know that will be a little difficult since you have to use a camera in order to do a review, but you know what I mean lol. Keep the videos coming, this is one of my favorite channels.

    What a great channel! I was wondering, if you make your own hiking food. All I've seen in the videos are the store sold meal pouches. I'd be interested in creating such meals myself, from dried ingredients I have at home, or that are available in (maybe specialized) stores. Would love to see your ideas for DIY hiking meal portions. Healthy and clean eating appeals to me, that's why I'd be interested in your opinions. P.S. What a wonderfully positive attitude you have! It's contagious even through youtube. Awesome! Even better with Susie.

I was wondering. lol I jsut realized i lost my stone on my last hike/camping trip! And i am looking for something to keep in my edc bag for hikes/camping trip.

      SEMPER FI MR LUKE!!! Yes sir you are right there! always pressing on!!! tysm brotha! i was useing a lansky stone here n thats what i lost!! it was rather on the large side 2 or 3 pounds i think it weight'd at!! Cool i'll get anther small lansky stone! tysm brotha for the info!! I've seen all theses small hand held gizmo's but i dident know if they were worth it! I dident want to tear apart the blade on my bk7-bk9!! A stone will work just fine! TYSM MR LUKE!! OOOOOHHHHHH RRRRAAAHHH GET UP DUST OFF PRESS ON!! BE GOOD MR LUKE!

    • TheOutdoorGearReview
      TheOutdoorGearReview 4 years ago

      We are always pressing on aren't we brother! No doubt about it. As for sharping, I typically use a Lansky Dual Grit Sharpener stone. It's simple and effective but large so you may not want to keep that in your EDC bag. For your EDC I would carry a simple sharpening stone, something that would sharpen the blade but may not get you to a razors edge. I would only worry about that sort of level of sharpness once I was home. Be well my friend. - Luke

      My friend there is so much good gear out there and without going into specifics I recommend that you look around. Shop for the good deals and don't be afraid of buying used.
