Re: is a knife a non-essential item?
I keep a tiny Gerber Zip Blade (0.6oz) in my pocket to slice open the little foil Micropur packets. Also, to occasionally cut cord. That's about it.

Re: Economy Trail Runners?
Check out DSW for trail runners. You can usually find some of last year's models for around $50. I'm partial to Suacony Grid Excursions. Youth sizes are available.

You're onto something, Jennifer. An articulating screen makes it much easier to compose a scene with the shorter tripods. The maximum height of my tripod is around 40", and I have no prob...

It's weird though, with floorless mid, bugs all congregate at the peak and leave me alone down below. There's maybe 1 inch gap between ground and walls around the perimeter. I've not...

Re: Ideas for a 3 day trip in Colorado?
