My hydration setup
I'm just so happy with my hydration setup I wanted to share. I use a Nathan 2L zip-top bladder with an in-line Sawyer filter. I also take a 2L Platy bag and a Nathan 8oz sucky bottle. I ...

Re: 8d
Well, this one is cut, marked, and half the baffles in so it will have to be the next one. I'm happy with M50, but no reason not to go with an 8d liner. Mebbe I'll give this one to my son...

M50 MyoQuilt air vents

My son, 5 days on the JMT today, texted me (with our inReach) that he wants me to bring him something stronger than the Solio Bolt when I resupply him at Florence. He has been diligently setting...

Jam 70
It's good you didn't buy the GoLite Jam70. I like the pack, but it needs modifications to work. Go Lite doesn't seem to understand how a pack is constructed. They include load lifter...

Retraining
I found that the switch to trail runners (Vasque, 10-12mm drop, not much arch support) caused me odd pains including knees, inside ankles, and metatarsals. Determined to get off the shoe and m...
