Re: Trail/Route Question
6 mile to Anasazi is 90% trail. It mostly runs to the left of the road and goes by the T-Rex track. Def take the trail there. I'll have to pull out by old Philmont GIS maps and look at the rest...

Re: Tarptent Hogback vs Big Agnes Copper Spur UL4

Re: Some tent questions
Just a quick post, but the PhilTents are about 7# (carried one for 1/2 summer as a ranger) and are poor tents. I really would suggest something like a BD Betamid/Megamid or similar (cheap, offer a ...
