"Sharing (Or Not) Locations and Logistics on the Web."
John Muir willingly shared all of his favorite spots--except what he Called Shadow Lake. He kept it secret for as long as he could because he was afraid that if people discovered it, they would tu...

"Looking for a challenging and scenic 75-150 mile hike"

"LIGHTEST ski goggle?"

"Trail shoes for wide, flat feet"
Keen shoes/boots have the widest toe box that I know of; they're roomy in the foot area too. I also just tried on a pair of Teva Kimtah 2 mids. Roomy toe box, a bit narrower in the foot, but st...

"Is there a next REI member coupon?"

Max: yeah this tent needs to be completely guyed out to stop condensation. Also, in condensation prone sites or situations, I'll unzip a bit of the top of my fly for venting. (I may have mentio...
