CA People -- in the hole for $500 per person?
Interesting Op-ed in the WSJ comparing California to Greece. And they never touched spending on non-taxpaying illegals. Since I don't live there, I'm not going to make any snarky comments a...

Rainier and Shagra-La 3
I'll try to think of where I saw it, but I looked at a Denali climb report the other day where they used the Shangri-La 3. Or maybe it was just a video of an avalanche, and there were some in b...

Zion Nat'l Park Traverse 2012, aka "The Trans-Zion", BPL Group Run-Round #2
For some reason the Paul Simon song "Still Crazy" popped into my mind, unbidden, when I read this. No offense intended.

In need of new clothes...
I buy whatever catches my eye on Steep and Cheap. I think Patagonia prices are ridiculous, even with my 50% off pro form.

F.S. - ULA Ohm Backpack
This is the only ULA pack I don't own. So tempting.

ULA Circuit vs Osprey Exos 46
Sold my Exos 46 to pay for a Circuit. One of the best gear decisions I've ever made. And it's made in the USA.

Backpacking in Utah: Gear and other q's
Bring a pack that will carry a lot of water well, depending on your route. I wouldn't count on rain, but I always take a UL rain jacket for a wind jacket. It will be a lot more like what you...

Pecos Wilderness conditions
Pretty big snow year in northern NM. Not sure how the temps are running now. I hope I'm up there in the next few weeks to check.

Marmot Atom Mens Regular 40 Degree
Nice bag. 1/2 zipper is kind of a pain, and makes it hard to use as a quilt. Seems true to rating.

ULA Catalyst
Replaced my Exos 58 with this, much more comfortable, with more weight. Got a deal on a 2008 model, and added the dual stays. A lot bigger pack than I'll use most of the time. Gained some weight o...

ULA Circuit
Switched to this for more durability, and the ability to carry more water in the desert. Works like a champ, and you couldn't ask for better customer service.

Osprey Exos 58
I have to ding it a little for the hip belt. I think the hip belts on the large runs small, because it didn't wrap around me enough to be effective. And that may not be fair to ding it, because al...

Golite Ultra 20
Mine kept me warm in the upper 20s, so I'm happy. I'm not completely sure it would reach 20, and keep you warm for 8 hours. But it's a great product for a great price.
