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: Keeping your sleeping bag dry in freezing temps
If it really is too cold to dry anything out during the day, I think the laws of physics limit you to the VBL solution--if you can't take water out, you've got to not put water in. If yo...

Re: Loosely tied shoes
I think it's an individual thing and I'll go out on a limb and say those who can get away with loose shoes are a very small minority. It probably depends on foot width, length, volume, sha...

Re: Mouth or inflator?
"So...based on your comments I can infer that most of you use an inflator or pump of some sort? I suppose I'd like to know more about how significant the moisture introduced by mouth reduc...

Re: Inflating UL Synmat 7 by mouth - loss of insulation?
Inflating by mouth puts moisture in anything, which is why I use my Schnozzle (or an Instaflator for other brands). R-value probably takes a hit depending on how damp you get it, but there's a...
