All information on the website and in our books is our personal writing. We are not nutritionists nor are we professional chefs. In the past we have been asked about whether we would provide nutrition counts on recipes. For now we are not doing it as the software is not reliable in providing correct amounts. There are a number of free resources to determine calorie counts online if one wants to try it. Periodically when the stats are easy to run we do add them to a recipe – if Sarah has the time to add it.
On subjects such as low sodium diets, we are presenting what has worked for us personally. As always, if you have dietary and health concerns, talk to your doctor first.
While no one we know has had any bad occurrences on the trail using freezer bags (ie. leakers, blowouts, etc) there is a small chance of it occurring. So make sure you pay attention, set the freezer bag in front of you as you pour the water, be careful when pouring the boiling water and don’t do it in your lap.
Use common sense in cooking in the outdoors, just like you would at home. All sports run injury risks, and cooking has a multitude of chances of hurting yourself (hot stoves, water, knives, etc).
We as authors, do not take any responsibility for the use of of any materials or methods described on this website, or in our books, nor of any products mentioned in them.

About gear reviews & links on our blog and website:
When we write about products and gear in the blog, website and books these are our personal views on the items. We are not paid to give reviews. These are unsolicited views. We have been approached on doing blogs for payment, and have turned it down to staying ethically moral. We want our reviews to be unbiased. We buy many of the items we review, though many are offered to us for review, without strings attached. If you notice a pattern in reviews and see a companies name pop up often, this is a company we love. These are our personal views.
We post links to help our readers find hard-to-get products and to see clearly what we are talking about when discussing gear/food/etc.
On Reviews Of Products and Food:
We do not take payment for our reviews/blog posts but we do receive items from manufacturers and public relation firms to review. We try keep an honest opinion about the items. If the item is so bad we cannot test sample it or it is unsafe we decline not review it publicly and/or simply turn down the chance to review it in the first place. We enjoy getting the chance to review books, food items and other things, it is enjoyable part of blogging after all!
Links on Nav bar of the blog:
The links to outdoor food companies on our navigation bar on the blog are websites with superior service and hard to find products. We do not take ad payments for listing them, though some have affilate programs where if you purchase from them we receive a percentage of the sale. This helps cover the cost of running the websites/server fees.
If we like your blog, website or company and feel you are what we love we will list you on our link page on our website. We feel that the links we post are companies and sites that we can believe in – and our readers trust us on that. If you have an outdoor related site please lets us know – we would like to see it.
We don’t post links on our blog and web site Nav Bars except for a few extremely trusted sites. This is to keep the sites less cluttered for easy reading.
You may see ads on the blog and website. We use these ads to pay for the upkeep of the server and to provide a free experience to our readers.
