ITF064: Upgrades to our rig


This is In The Field Camping Episode 64. In this episode Chris talked about all the gadgets, gear, and upgrades we’ve made to our “rig” over the years.  Most of the items listed below are linked to our Amazon Store, click on them to buy what we like and recommend.  We get a little money – not enough to retire on – when you buy through our store, but it costs you nothing extra.  The main point of the store is to share with you what we use and put it all in one convenient place if you want to buy it.  You can also use the Amazon Store’s of the fine people and channels mentioned in the previous podcast episode.  This episode was recorded at Lake Pueblo State Park in Colorado.
