"Can the GOP Sink Any Lower? Yes It Can!!"
Trump: "I don't have time to be politically correct". And yet he has plenty of time to be a jackass. His comments about women are simply unacceptable. Look, it's not a question of...

"Wet feet – should I worry about this? (Fugly foot pictures)"
When my feet get wet I get blisters. So I wear a pair of 2 1/2 ounce event gaiters if I'm going to be crossing shallow creeks.(Actually, between rocks and logs, it's amazing how many creeks...

"Tent take 2. Not happy with Solplex, next option?"
The MLD duo with innernet would be my first choice in tents, if I were in the market..although the Solplex seems great too. Both solve the 'issue' of a raised beak allowing strong winds ...

"Duplex and bad mesh stretch"

"Pitching *plex tents closer to the ground - Altaplex vs Duplex"
I've also had the problem with pitching my solo hex low and thereby losing a good bathtub. I'll try stuffing things into the corners but I somehow doubt this will entirely make good. In the...

"Stories of bad weather and how your shelter went"
Theo's story about puddles forming on packed ground reminded me of the worst situation that I found myself in weather-wise. Overflowing trails that send little streams toward your tent can be a...
