I'm sure that some of you have seen the March edition of American Hunter. If not, there was a cool article about the Mechanical Engineering Capstone Design making a shooting system that uses puffs of air and head movement to aim/shoot.
| Food and Drink Board|| What do you cook on camping trips? - DonChowder on 1/8/15 at 5:13 pm|
Me and the family are campers but I think we go after the basics too often with meals. I'm looking for some interesting new twists for this weekend's trip. It's a boat-in site so excess gear for cooking is no big deal.
Any ideas for me are much appreciated. :cheers:...
