My Locale Above the Divided Line
About Me I backpack as the Studliest Studly Studmuffin of Studly Studliness who ever Studlied himself out of Studlyville.

I cut a large path while leaving no trace and carring less than three pounds in my pack.

If you want knowledge of some real scientific prinicples, talk to me and I will guide you to the sun.

See you on the other side.

And remember to keep to the mean.

Re: Re: more on floor treatment
Apply it to the bottom of your pad instead...its a whole lot easier and wherever you put the pad, you have traction.

Re: Re: next: Boot heel springs..“It is like carrying an extra 12 pounds for free.”
Ummm...the only thing the backpack does is change the amount of time over which the force is applied. The overal impulse is the same (actually more thanks to the weight of the backpack). However,...

Re: painting stakes.

Oh and one final quick reply---the velocity vs time graph was just an example that may or may not apply to anyone's walking speed. The variability of the velocity is not a problem. Just thi...

BD------- "Then S/T = XIV + T OR T = (XIV + T)/S, if you divide both sides of the equation by S. Thus the overall apparent aberations from mathematical norms and rules. Also, while the use...

GoLite Ether Wind Shirt (Wisp HP)
