I finally have my new website online:  This is a web directory for the Piedmont Triad of North Carolina.  My hope is to bring together all of the local organic farmers and sources of local meats into one location so that anyone following the Paleo/Primal lifestyle in the area know where to go to get their grub.

So far it looks like things are going well with the site and a lot of praise and that makes me happy.

Next up is to work on some new recipes for my other website and possibly even work on dehydrating some of those meals so I know what I can play with hiking.

Anyone else use pickled eggs on their trips?  I tried one recipe and it worked well and a real eye opener having some vinegar in the morning for breakfast.  I would like to dig up some different recipes/spices to try out and see how well they work though so if anyone has anything to try I'd love to hear about it.

Osprey Manta 20 Review and more

I've been a busy bee working on a local Paleo directory website.  I wanted to create a site that others starting the Paleo diet or even people who have been on it for a while could find local sources of grass-fed meats, know which restaurants were safe, and also add a list of health and wellness sites to keep us all optimal.  All I have to do now is dream up a logo and work it out in Illustrator.  Then it will be off to build a new website for flat feet people, like me.

In the meantime I have been doing some updates on my other site and I finally got around to adding my review of the Manta 20 from Osprey.  If you're looking for a solid day pack for hiking, biking, or climbing this one is a good choice.  Have a look at my review here.

I also finished up my journal of my Stone Mountain hike.

I have had much time lately to work on any new recipes but I did manage to put together my own spin on fish tacos.  I created a Smoky paprika Coconut-Crusted Cod with a Cilantro-Lime Vinaigrette.  It was fairly simple and tasted nice.  I just need to make some tweaks to the recipe and get the measurements down before adding it to the website.
