    I personally love travel by train. The seats are big. I can recline the seat so it's almost like a bed. The ride is peaceful. The people are nice. The view is pretty. Almost always on time. ...

    I ordered a Sawyer and I guess I'll get started with that. As to what's "remote" from civilization, that seems a little ambiguous. How far away is far enough? Case in point, I frequently camp in...

    Some people think you need a car for emergencies. You really just need to be able to dial 911.
