Nate: It was nice to run into you on your way up Mt. Diablo. It's a good time of year to hike Ohlone and Mt. Diablo. I've been hiking the Mt. Diablo area quite a bit over the last few we...

Ken: I'm still planning on going on the Rancheria trip. I may go up early enough to hike in Friday and stay two nights up at the falls, but if not, I'll be up no later than Friday night.

books on the trail
I always bring a paperback on the trail with good intentions, but always end up reading much less than I had planned. I guess I end up too tired or just enjoy being out there more than in my head....

I just started using a bivy a year ago, and I really like it. As Tony mentioned, and others echoed, the main benefit is the quality of your wilderness experience (and the versatility a bivy / tarp...

I have to add my two cents about MLD's service. Early this summer I damaged the bottom of my Exodus pack. The damage was completely my fault (sliding down granite). I wrote Ron and asked if he ...
