Scott Tissue Rolls Out Tubeless Toiletpaper [Packable Camping Gear] Thursday, 28 October 2010
Ultralight weight campers out there are going to be happy that Scott Tissue is testing cardboard tube free toilet paper in Walmarts and Sam's Clubs across the Northeast United States.Anybody who has tried to pull out the tube on a full roll of toilet paper will know it pretty much destroys the roll. If you are not a ultralight camper and have no idea what I’m talking about, that’s ok. Removing the cardboard tube on a roll makes it a whole lot more compact when you are shoving it back in your backpack or canoe pack.I think it’s a great idea as there are 17 billion tubes produced annually in the United States, accounting for 160 million pounds of trash.If it sells well then they are going to roll it out everywhere.More info USA Today [Via: Gizmodo]

The kind folks from North Sea Resins sent me a sample of their recently introduced emergency repair kit for both plastic and fibreglass canoe or kayaks.It’s slightly different then the many other repair kits on the market in that the curing process is activated by blue spectrum light and cures in under 30 seconds.When I unboxed the kit, I was presented with a Camelbak water bottle (as a watertight storage container) filled with fibreglass cloth, a plastic applicator tab, a black syringe filled with resin, two sheets of sandpaper and a blue LED light to activate and cure the resin.
