Backpacking Rod
I bought a Fountainhead Caddis tenkara before a Sierras trip and planned to use it. On the drive out from the east coast, on a whim I bought a 4 wt Wind River outfit from Cabelas. I think it was ...

MSR
They received my tent back on Friday. I will report back on how it goes. I won't be upset either way since I figure the tent has some age on it (I actually do not remember when I bought it, s...

Tenkara
Inexpensive is OK, but I'd avoid rods that were designed for other purposes and sold as tenkara rods. Some of the rods on ebay are okay and some are complete crap. By the way the Fountainhe...

MSR
I went ahead and returned the Fling. I am out $13 postage at worst. At best they will replace it. FWIW, they did finally reply to my original email. It seemed like a long delay, but at least th...

Food Drop
Thanks, I'll consider those options. It would be worth the fee for pack service to me to be able to travel with a lighter pack. The only part I tend to balk at is that I assume I need to be t...

re: Big SEKI Loop
That certainly is helpful and gives me some options to consider. I have no need to rush in deciding as the trip would likely be in September. My take on the wilderness experience aspect is that...

re: Big SEKI Loop
The problem of needing to carry that much food, for me, is that more food = bigger canister = can't take my favorite pack. I can manage 4 days pretty well with my small bear vault 450. I migh...
