Ideas for Kids Gear
I don't have any gear to sell you but here are some ideas for where to look. Packs REI has the Flash 18 which is a pretty minimal pack, basically a stuff sack with straps. I'm not sure...

Think I'll go long
Thanks ya'll. I think I'll just keep what I have for the time being. The biggest point made to me was Dave's idea that a longer shaft keeps sharp ends out from under your chest. Hard...

Re Re Ice Axe Question
Yeah that was what I thought. I might err on the side of a bit shorter then recommended because I'll have it strapped to my pack a lot more then I'll actually us it. I won't be doing ...

Re guadalupe mountains
I'm working on a trip report about that area but here are the basics. 1. There is no reliable water that you can legally use. There is a spring fed creek in McKittrick Canyon. But its such...

Not worth it
I'll second Clayton's opinion. Its solid pack as is. I used the 4400 a lot this summer. I don't much care for the pockets but I can live with them. A front pocket is nice, I made m...

Re Re PIF bear spray
I did ship bears spray once (legally). I don't remember the details but there was a special form. If you have the right PO employee it might be easy, if no one is familiar with the regs it mi...
