About Me I enjoy being outdoors, either alone or in the company of others (human/canine). Thanks to BPL, I am learning to hike my own hike while balancing childlike delight with adultish deliberation. Recent backpacking trips include Dark Canyon Wilderness, Grand Gulch, Capitol Reef, Canyonlands, and Escalante in UT. Closer to home, Lost Creek Wilderness and the Indian Peaks/RMNP region in CO.

Re: Foot "deadness." is it arches or cushioning?

Re: rocks and stakes
Kris, I second David's point. Though you may not have access, this article is a great resource for alternative staking techniques. http://www.backpackinglight.com/cgi-bin/backpackinglight...
