My Locale Pacific Northwest
About Me I'm a flatlander hick from southeast Texas who fell in love with the mountains after spending two summers in New Mexico and one in Colorado. I was mostly a dayhiker until my kids got old enough that I wasn't spending every spare minute at a game or recital. Now I get out for multiday trips 4-5 times a year. I like to keep moving, cover a lot of ground. Not big on lounging around, even if it's gorgeous. I don't like out-and-backs. There's just too much of Creation to see!

Re: My tick experience. No pictures but not for the squeamish.
Sounds like a good landlord to have around! I must say, though, I find it curious that someone as sensitive to the little demons as you would eschew Permethrin treated clothing. I'm not sen...

Re: Live dummies at Tarptent
These dummies are excellent. Henry already had the best visualization of his tents and these make them doubly useful. This kind of thing is especially helpful to those of us over 6 feet. I'v...

Down? Hang it up!
My experience matches that above--there's just not enough weight to cause any compression problems by the hanger.

Re: Realistic Expectations for UL Tent?
What Franco said. I've had it happen, and it was very clearly condensation misting off. I've never experienced the so-called misting through silnylon. I'm a skeptic. :)

Re: Re: Re: Sleeping Bag Q: WPB or not?
Definitely not WPB. The only reason for WPB is to keep rain splatter and condensation drip from getting into your bag from the outside. At 0 to -15, I can guarantee you won't have either. Bu...

Fishing line hassles
I foresee lots of them. Tangles, stuck lines snapped off and hanging in the wind, the hassle of rewrapping or reloading the thing after every shot, etc. Can you assuage my fears? I wouldn'...
