Re: A dog's dry overall
I think such an idea would be confining for the dog. It could also inhibit your dog's natural ability to dry itself and get clean. My dog does a surprisingly good job taking care of her fur and...

Re: Update and 100D floor
I think it would depend on the weight for 100D. I personally do not see any reason to go above a good 30D silnylon for a floor (1.5 - 1.65 oz/sq yd); the material has worked well for me with no gro...

Re: Via alternative
I tried the Cafe Bustelo ones a few months ago. I think it may actually be the same stuff as Folger's instant coffee - tastes about the same, smells about the same, and looks the same. But that...

Re: Re: Re: Where to Put Bear Canister at Night

Where to Put Bear Canister at Night
I am curious what people do with their bear canister at night. Do you keep it close to your camp, so you can scare off any bears that go after your canister? Do you store it farther away? Do you st...

Re: Re: Shelters - Either Way
I have not read any reports of bonded cuben shelters coming apart. Given that Justin Lichter and Shawn Forry used a cuben MLD DuoMid (which uses bonded-only ridgeline seams) on their winter PCT thr...
