My Locale Maine!
About Me I've worked for the Appalachian Mountain Club and Green Mountain Club for several seasons. I led a trail crew in Vermont for the Vermont Youth Conservation Corps near Stratton Mountain. I hope to continue working on or near hiking trails, although the seasonal work thing is hard to sustain over the long run. We'll see how that goes...

Re: Re: EMS ML 0 Degree
Jeremy, thanks for the initial impressions! I've been really leaning toward getting one of these to try this winter (or at least renting one from the local EMS for a test run). I tried climbing...

Re: Thanks!
Sounds like you're on the right track, Ryan. I did love my Caldera Cone ULC, but you're right that they are a bit pricey. For what it's worth, mine is on track to last forever, so I&...

Re: bags
That's great if you want to limit yourself to the small handful of bags that have EN ratings.

Re: Crude, quick estimate of insulative efficiency for down apparel comparisons
I like it, Colin. I've been looking over similar comparisons for down parkas and sleeping bags for a few weeks as a way to compare similar products between manufacturers. If you take the manufa...

Re: Re: Preliminary PCT/JMT Gear List
"I have never used the summerlight, don't know anything about it, but a 19 oz bag warm enough for the high sierras sounds too good to be true. Probably wrong, but just something to look in...

Re: Sweet!
Hmm. Yeah, I had thought of staying in lean-tos, but Clint you're right that it could get drafty under them. I wonder if that cabin on Alander is a popular place... we wouldn't want to show...
