Has anyone tried the freeze dried salsa?

I was waiting to see if someone else responded (since these salsas sound really good!), but since no one has, I will say that of all the stuff I dehydrate for hiking meals/appetizers, salsa is among the best in terms of how closely it resembles the original product. Given the product you're referring to is freeze dried, it's probably even better!

Another gift list on sectionhiker.com: https://sectionhiker.com/section-hikers-gift-guide/light-weight-backpacking-gift-guide/ Some of these are rather pricey! You probably would want to consult with the recipient first to find out if the item is really wanted!

May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view.--E.Abbey

Big Agnes Skyline UL camp chair. A game changer. Partner and I gifted ourselves with a pair of these this summer. At 29oz. per they are not for thru hikers but for day hikes and basecamp backpacking they are just fabulous. Imagine being actually comfortable in camp, or at a viewpoint. Or setting up for bird watching or sunsets. Or for a concert that is a long walk from the car. Tad spendy at $129 https://www.outdoorgearlab.com/reviews/camping-and-hiking/backpacking-chair/big-agnes-skyline-ul Helinox has a lighter chair (18oz.) that I've tried at REI that is a step down in comfort but comes in at a weight that you might just carry it on a moving BPing trip

Yet another gift guide, this time for winter hikers, on Section Hiker: https://sectionhiker.com/section-hikers-gift-guide/winter-hiking-gift-guide/ It has links to the other Section Hiker gift guides; nice to have them all in one place!

Happy to see the Brynje base layers made the list. I own a set and they are beyond valuable. Can’t wear ‘em to the apres ski, though!

For a good time call: 1-800-SLD-ALDR.

I wear mine to work meetings. In other news, we suddenly don't require cameras on in meetings anymore.

I've had the Packit Gourmet pico de gallo and it is very tasty. Highly recommended. Great for backcountry fish tacos. One caveat - it's best when used within a year. https://www.packitgourmet.com/happy-hour-pico-de-gallo/

Mini solar charger? I have a keychain solar charger and power bank one that can be used for emergencies and has maybe 200mh of charge.

Wow! Have you or anyone you know used this thing? I have lots of partially used canisters that I'm not comfy taking for an overnighter, so save up for a car camp which I don't often do.

That's essentially identical to the Chinese version that's been available on Amazon for a long time. I've been using one for quite a few years. It works great! My only caution is: be very careful not to overfill the receiving canister. I weigh carefully and if I overdo it, I flip the cans and take some back out.
