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: Windshield compass recommendations?

Re: RE: Need belt
I have a longer torso than you, but I agree with the suggestion above. I've found only two options for myself--something with no hipbelt or my regular backpack. It's usually the latter fo...

My new mantra
"We will hike until we have to be hauled off the trail!" I bet everyone on here gets that.

Re: you're still incorrect
"And the fact is that running in and of itself does NOT cause osteoarthritis. AT ALL. There is literally NO difference in prevalence of OA in runners vs non-runners. I will tell you there IS a...

Re: Tarptent Stratospire 1 specs
Henry claims the SS1 is good up to about 6'4". He specifically told me (6'5") to forget about it. Both the Notch and the MomentDW are supposed to be good up to 6'9", bu...

Re: Understanding my Casio barometric altimeter watch
All a barometric watch can sense is pressure. Any changes in the pressure have to be attributed to either changes in elevation or changes in the weather. You tell it what to assume by choosing th...

Re: Rainbow in the winter
I've only had my Rainbow in falling snow once, and it readily sloughed off about 2 inches of dry snow. There was no wind, so I can't say for sure, but I suspect some spindrift would indeed...

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...
