My Locale Oregon and Washington
About Me I started hiking about 45 years ago. My first backpack was 40 years ago. I currently try to do one backpack trip of 5 nights every month (which can be tricky in the winter) 20 to 50 miles. Mostly I stay around Mount Hood, Columbia Gorge, Mount Adams, Goat Rocks, and the Olympic Peninsula. In recent years I have shifted to lightweight - my pack weight without food and water is about 15 lb (7 kg). I make a lot of my own gear - silnylon tarp-tent, bivy, synthetic bag, simple bag style pack. My sleeping pad is a Therm-a-Rest air mattress.

Re: Re: Re: I wouldn't worry
My feet stay fairly dry in melting snow and pouring rain. Or wet brush is maybe the worst. WPB shoes. Wading streams is a problem though, but I avoid that mainly. How do you keep your feet dr...

Re: I wouldn't worry
I keep my feet dry. WPB boots or shoes. But I rarely have to walk through stream, I can just rock hop or walk across log. Seems like when your feet get that wet, you're asking for fungal...

I've been using this: Kind of a mid with one half turned into a triangle beak. I haven't seen anyone sell something like this. Someone has something similar with the beak total...

Re: Socks for big feet, sizes 14 and beyond.

Re: Re: A Brief Look at Lindal Valves
one thing about Roger's stove for cold weather, is it doesn't weigh much more than an upright. And the stove/pot is lower so it's more stable and wind resistant.

Re: Re: Re: Ten years in Humboldt
I've driven through Chico. Seemed hot. Isn't there a Grateful Dead song about Chico?

Re: Ten years in Humboldt

yeah, good point, a quick blast would eject particles better I've found upright stoves to be good down to 25 F, although it starts getting slow. You can go somewhat below that with one of t...

Re: issue
glue them, then cut off excess? Put sole in oven and see if it shrinks? Buy a new one? If the rest of the sandals show wear, it's not worth screwing with. If the soles are detached and ...
