Off to Capitol Reef National Park

I'm off to Capitol Reef in Utah for a few days. I plan to do a video review of a piece of gear I recently got. If you can guess what it is before I release the video, you get a free prize! When I get back, I'll see who the winner is and contact you for your address so I can send it to you. Have a great Memorial Day weekend everyone! I hope you have some great hiking plans for the holiday!

Have a great trip Jason in Capitol Reef.
This is funny,
I am having a coffee in my favorite cup from Capitol Reef Inn & Café in Torrey, Utah. This is where I stop before going back home to Missouri. They have the best rainbow trout I ever had.
In Capitol Reef I camp in one of the remote locations on a new moon and from there I set out for Hikes and adventure. Capitol Reef has some of the darkest skies I’ve ever seen one can see the milky way from horizon to horizon and follow the dark nebulas with a pair of binoculars (8X40) on a good tripod. At night the stars put out enough light that you can see shadow on a white paper. On the next new moon I will be going that way for my 2-week vacation. Hope you have a good time.
My guess for gear review will be the VooDoo Stove.

Ooo, could this mystery piece of gear be the Gorilla pack?

Gorilla pack is my guess.

I will guess it is the DUO CAB from Minibull, or a new spork. Hey Esdras what part of missouri are you from?

Ok, so I already know- your new Gossamer Mariposa Plus pack! Looking forward to your review, as I am this close to getting one myself!
Cheers,
sean

I will bet, Jason will surprise us with the choke Hazard stove a review.

Sean cheated! He had inside information. It is indeed the Mariposa Plus Backpack. Sorry everyone, no winners. I will have the video online by Thursday (editing it now).

BTW, the weather in Capitol Reef made us bail and go to Canyonlands and Arches instead. The weather was much better there and we ended up having a great time.

Deanne,
Ha, ha, that's great! My favorite is the "knork"! Do they come in titanium?
