    You guys made me look at my old knife collection. Yup, I have a Buck 110 that I gave to my wife about 15 years ago. I might even sharpen it for her before I give it back.

    Yeah I've owned, and still do, several 110's and they will be marked for sure.


    Nice breakfast Mag but man you need to cook that bacon! ;)

    Mine's definitly not marked anywhere but seems the same size. I can take actual measurements. What looks like brass ends, the locking mechanism, the rivets etc have held up incredibly well over the years. Blade holds an edge well too.

    Tough to cook properly 2 lbs of 12in long strips of bacon in a 6in pan... one burner and trying to cook bacon, heat beans, back to bacon, heat beans a little more, back to bacon, then frying eggs. Some pieces were too crispy, some just right, and other not quit enough. And cooked on a firepit on a 10 degree slope...

    We ate the whole pack between the 2 of us though.. :D

    Since it appears I have derailed the thread, I'll post what I take on multi-day, backwoods trips:

    On day 1 I'll stop at a grocery store and buy steaks, a bag of ice, and a newspaper - at least an hour's drive from where I'll be putting in. Open the bag of ice and jam the steaks in there. At the parking lot of our starting point, take them out, wrap in the newspaper, and stuff them into a pack.

    After that, it's pepperettes/jerky, Clif bars, ramen, and Mountain House/Backpacker's Pantry/some generic freeze-dried meals. Every day gets its own baggy. Tea, coffee, sugar, salt, hot sauce, and oil for frying the odd fish round out the list. A Katadyn Befree provides the water, but I'll pack purification tablets as a backup.

    Purchased, and have used one of these. Remove inner pot to use the outer pot for normal cooking.
    Highly recommend.

    I know this doesn't quite count, but thought I would share...

    I was recently on a moto-glamping in Western NC, where my buddy Nick and I were spending our nights in a Class A motor-home owned by Nick's folks at a luxury RV park. The spot was complete with outdoor fireplace, a Traeger Smoker, and plenty of Patron Anejo...

    Nick's pop decided to smoke us up a WHOLE WAGYU BEEF BRISKET while we were out riding. Damn was it delicious!

    What campground is that? Where? I'm asking for my 5th wheel who wants to know. :-)

    @RoundTrip it is the Mountain Falls Luxury RV Park. Each lot is owned under a covenant, but many rent their spots out. They only accept Class A Coaches in excess of 30 feet I believe. No 5th wheels. Fancy Schmancy.

    Nice. Thanks, even though my 5th wheel is just a little insulted :-)
