Re: Who still needs one?
Apparently I am a little late getting to the dance, but I would be happy to put one to good use on a tent purchase, if you find any more. Thanks a bunch for making any and all available!

Re: Ditch Your Stakes
Most impressive. Best drawings yet IMO, including Mike's books. My favorite line was "flossing the ice deadperson". And just the term "deadperson"... that's great -...

Re: spend my money on a good tarp or a good bivy???

Re: Trapper and Caldera Fissure update

Re: Pack covers - how many use them?
I own a couple sizes of Sea to Summit pack covers that fit everything I own. However, more often than not, they are left behind. In summer, I usually carry a poncho, so no pack cover required...
