ULTRALIGHT knife field sharpener: Review Smith’s Pocket Pal Knife Sharpener

Aaron has carried this sharpener into the field on multiple trips. It has the features of the larger Smith Sharpener but it also can sharpen serrated edges. This is a great feature for knives with classic serrations. What knife sharpener do you carry or do you use? There are lots of options out there. This sharpener isn’t great for huge knives at home, as it’s really small. It’s something that’s good in the field that doesn’t weigh much. Watch this video to see if it will work for you.

Best walkie talkie field radio: Review Motorola MS350R

The Motorola MS350 radio is likely the best regular family radio system (FRS) on the market. Aaron has used this radio in the desert and on Denali to communicate with his teams and listen to weather updates. The rechargeable battery and ability to swap for AA batteries is a huge lifesaver. Also, the radio is quite water resistant – it can handle dunking. Other less expensive splash-proof versions like the MR350 or MT350 are less expensive options. They have a theoretical 35 mile range.

The MOST SOUTHWEST Point in America – US Mexico Border

Travel with Aaron as he visits the most southwesterly point in the continental United States. He shows you what the border looks like, the fence, and some of the nice parts of the area. It’s a bit of a walk to visit but well worth it. When the border has been such a hot news item, you can see for yourself what it really looks like rather than what’s portrayed in the media.

BEST ultralight sleeping bag: Western Mountaineering MegaLite review

This Western Mountaineering Megalite bag has a double layer on the top and a single layer on the bottom. It’s rated to 30 deg F. Aaron has used it in 5 deg F temperatures. It was a little chilly but it kept him safe. If you sleep a little bit colder, I’d suggest the Ultralight (20 deg F) or Versalite (10 deg F) bags. These both have a double layer on the bottom for added warmth.
