Re: A Yosemite Quickie: Chilnualna Falls Trailhead to Fernandez Pass and back, 5/29 - 5/30
Lindt truffles, that's a great idea. My current favorite is Lu shortbread and chocolate cookies and those Trader Joes sea salt and dark chocolate covered almonds. Mmmm.

Re: caffeine pills instead of coffee?

Re: SEKI cross country questions
Consider taking Cartridge Pass out of Lake Basin, instead of Frozen Lake Pass. Frozen Lake isn't that bad, but Cartridge is much easier. Might make it more feasible for your wife.

Re: Obnoxious MLD prices...
I would guess a Supermid uses at least twice the material of a Duomid. Given how much more expensive cuben is than silnylon I'm not surprised. The Supermid is not priced that differently from t...
