My Locale Moderator-JohnMuirTrail Yahoo Group
About Me Formerly from MN and NY, now in Reno, NV, I have been hiking every summer in the High Sierra since 2000. From 2000-2007, we did the High Sierra Trail (HST). Been doing the John Muir Trail since then, every year. I am the lead moderator for the JohnMuirTrail@YahooGroups.com for 2011-2013. I organized groups (without charge) for the JMT, 2008-2011 for the hike I participated in (from 5 to 8 people). I'm doing a JMT 2014 group hike again.

Re: What is the loudest alarm wrist watch
Brett, we are leaving our cellphones behind. What is the purpose of taking them? We will be out for 17 days, their charges will die, they can't make calls while in the back country. They wei...

My final finding is that the Brunton ADC Pro, which weighs 2 ounces without the lanyard, is the best multi-function alarm / watch to take hiking. It has a very, very loud alarm - my higher frequen...

Ultra Light High Comfort Mattress Pads
On my 9 day hike last year I did not get as good a sleep as I would like. The problem with a 4' sleeping pad is that to be comfortable, your head is typically on a pillow in front of the pad. ...
