ITF018: YouTube Channel, internet boxes, dehydrator follow-up, and freezing temps after de-winterizing


This is In The Field Camping Episode 18.  In this episode we talked about our new YouTube Channel, which includes pictures, videos, and annotations.  Then it was on to ways to watch our YouTube Channel, and other digital downloadable media with various internet boxes like the Roku, Google TV, Apple TV, and BluRay players with integrated internet capabilities.  These are small units perfect for taking on the road.

Next was an update on food dehydrators, since our Nesco unit died in just under 3 weeks!  It was replaced by the “Cadillac” of dehydrators, the Excalibur – which so far has proven to be perfect.

Finally, we talked about the dilemma of de-winterizing only to partially re-winterize due to winter-like spring storms hitting the mountain west.

Our YouTube Channel has the added benefit of different original music mixed within the episodes.  Starting with this episode, that music is put directly into the podcast version of the show.  On this show, songs include the show title music “Key To Me”, “Take It To The Grave”, and “A Year To Remember”.
