re SoCal
Not sure if Fishbowls is a good idea since there was a fire yesterday at Lake Piru, and the fishbowls are on Piru Creek. Not sure how close they are but I wouldnt chance it.

re SoCal
Could backpack to Sespe Hot springs from the Piedras Blancas TH in the Sespe Wilderness. Also, more of a one-nighter, but you could backpack to the Bridge to Nowhere above Azusa. Plenty of trees...

Agreed. A sub-forum is probably warranted at this point. Also, have you seen Anton's Longs Peaks photos? His new style of "running" is in a class of its own. With SUL pack he coul...

I didnt see it on there, but youll be fine with just the maps. The guidebook is nice if you want to read about trees and burn the pages to start your fire. I took a REI Halo 25 degree bag and wa...

re: craig
Sounds like a plan. I am still at the point where my "long runs" will have to be hikes. I wanna hike the Three T's (~14mi), maybe Mt. Wilson (~15mi), or Iron Mountain (~15mi). I am ho...

REI Quarterdome
I enjoyed owning my QuarterDome T2, but eventually sold it and opted for the tarping scene. I took this tent on the JMT and I never had any complaints. No problems with durability or condensation. Whe...

MSR Titan Kettle
I love this thing. It weighs more than other pots but what it weighs is not so important to me, all titanium pots are virtually weightless in my book. As far as features, I love the spout and lid. ...

Therm-A-Rest Ridgerest
It is one of the lightest, it is indestructable and warm. It is the only pad Ive ever used or needed. After one or two nights you get used to sleeping on it. Anything more than a foam mattress is a lu...

I give these a 5 but maybe it would be more like a 9 on the 10 scale. These shoes do it all. I wore these for about 800 miles before deciding to retire them (a conservative estimate). At that point...
