Re: Re: GG Trek Poles
I've broken one in the time it took me to wear out two sets of pole tips (2000 miles?). I did the same thing, stumbled and the pole broke when I leaned on it wrong. But if you're careful wi...

Re: GG Trek Poles

Re: Rafting Conditions
Did you get a replacement Haven? Or something else? Did Philip and Daniel take the Duplex? How'd that work out?

Re: Rafting Conditions
Drysuits, rafts, fishing gear, big bear canisters... you guys must have had heavy packs! What fishing gear did you bring? I am sure you didn't spend 30 minutes fighting a salmon with a BPL H...

Re: Traversing the Brooks Range – A Father-Son-Son Adventure
I nominate Manfred for father of the year. (And for the last several years, too...) How was the rafting? Did you guys get into anything technical? The flash flood is a bit scary, not something I...
