  2. Travis McGee, John Muir, and me, still in Cedar Key 9

    Our crude civilization engenders a multitude of wants, and law-givers are ever at their wits' end devising. The hall and the theater and the church have been invented, and compulsory education.

  5. Batchstovez 450ml Lid Review for Toaks Titanium 450ml Cup


    This is a review of the Batchstovez 450ml Lid for 450ml pots and cups. Specifically, this lid fits the Toaks 450ml Titanium Cup perfectly. Many sites sell the Toaks 450ml cup without the lid, although Iím starting to see the cup offered with a lid periodically on eBay. For those looking for a light lid that fits perfectly, this is it.
