Backwoods Repair Gear
‘I spend a lot of time outdoors: canoeing, backpacking, fishing, camping?you name it. And as a DIYer, I feel compelled to carry a repair kit wherever I go.
Of course, the kit varies depending on the trip, but here are a few items I often carry. Some are pretty obvious, like duct tape, paracord, zip ties and a multi-tool.
But the others aren’t: A piece of aluminum tube that can slide over a broken tent pole can be a trip saver. A lightweight magnifier will actually allow you to see what you’re doing when you make small repairs.
And thin wire is one of the most useful items you can carry. Wrap it, twist it, ‘sew’ with it…. It’s strong, heat proof and doesn’t stretch. I’ve used it dozens of times, for fixing everything from my boot to a canoe.’

Pizza to Go
For the person who loves to make pizza, now there’s the PizzaQue?a dedicated propane-powered pizza oven (26 lbs.) that’s easy to take camping, to the beach, tailgating or your weekend place. It takes about 20 minutes for the PizzaQue to heat up, it reaches high temperatures you can’t get in a home oven (well over 700 degrees F), and it has two built-in pizza stones. Pizzas take only about five minutes each to bake! The PizzaQue PC6500 is available at The Home Depot, Cabela’s and online for about $200.
