What did /out/ get for Christmas?
Been a while since Christmas, so hopefully you've had a chance to try out some of the new stuff you got.
Post pictures of it here, talk about cool /out/ gifts you got. Maybe even stuff you got from the secret Santa thread.
OP here, I'll start.
Between my parents, wife, and other family I got a few cool things.
-Marmot Ares down jacket
-new Nalgene bottle to replace old one
-Arrowhead Equipment New River Long Winter underquilt
-Bahco Laplander folding saw
-Thermarest Compressable Pillow
Base layers? Hiking socks? Just a nice hoodie?
They have all kinds of stuff on bass pros website. Maybe just some food to take /out/.
Something I got from there is a propane fish fryer I use caping (car caping o ly, its huge). It's pretty sweet, and costs like $50.
Camping, not caping
Fuck my typing skillz
i'm a fucking adult so i didn't get anything for christmas.
i bought a ps4 and it broke but i haven't been sober enough during the day to return it. it wasn't very cool anyways.
does your mom still buy you shit for christmas?
i bought some pretty cool shit at the rei sale in like october.
Cabella's ten tray dehydrator. And I got myself a foodsaver. No more CLIF bars and nutella for me... well, maybe a little.
I have that one and didn't realize when I bought it the temps aren't really good enough to make food safe jerky. You have to preheat your meat to 160/165 before you dry it out. Granted I have made some beef jerky from store bought meat without doing the pre-heat but if your meat does have harmful bacteria in it, the dehydrator alone won't kill them off.
i got a 230 piece craftsman tool set. I start school for diesel mechanics soon and needed basic tools
I haven't tried making jerky, but I'm drying heart in it right now for pemmican, which should be dried under 110F anyway. Its fresh, whole heart and went straight from being sliced to the dehydrator. You are right that those are the FDA recommendations, but they also say you shouldn't eat rare steaks but fifteen bug parts in a tablespoon of peanut butter is perfectly acceptable without cooking. Like most USAgencies, it's probably more about covering their own asses than about it being a serious issue.
A couple cool anons got me these. I'll be using them for my country's military basic training.
Also got some Saucony trail runners.
