Myths, Fish, Gear & Minimum Viable Kit (MVK) | JMB Podcast Episode 33

Hot Inside The Tent Stove

In episode 33 of the podcast we discuss a common myth of barehand navigation, the effect of changing air pressure on fish, and gear addiction, evolution and minimum viable kit (MVK). For this episode I was joined by Ed Butler (aka Working Class Woodsman), and for those with sensitive ears we did swear a few times so maybe don’t let your five-year-old listen.

    Great podcast. I like quality not quanity. As a kid back in the late 60’s I used a cruiser pack frame with my kit in a Boy Scout poncho with a diamond hitch. My cooking kit was a #10 can with a piece of coat hanger and a pressed steel frying pan I got from my Grandmother. I cut the handle off per Cache lake Country. I didn’t have a sleeping bag slept in a winter coat. Now I have some different stuff. Nothing wrong with going out with a 4 Dog TI stove by the way I don’t hold that against you LOL. The problem is alot of time you don’t know what to spend your money until you get some time in the woods. Buy once cry once. All the Best!

  • Thank you for the comment Robbie.

Typos, Etc.
Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
