Shasta Trip Report
I just finished watching this and thought it was great. Thanks for putting it together and sharing it. I was surprised you were glissading in your crampons and not using your ice axe for a rudder...

I live in the wrong place
Well, I just checked Target. No chicken in pouches of any size. Then I checked World Market. No dried soups of any type. Back to mail order.

Thanks, Bob and Sarah. I hadn't thought of looking for soup in the cups. I will definitely dump the cups if I can find what I'm looking for. I used to get dehydrated tomato soup in pouch...

That's good to know. I too have tried to find 3 oz packages of chicken with no luck. I'll look a little more kindly on the cans and try one. Speaking of food sources, where can I find ...

Calling Sarah for the world's best recipe
When I plan backpacking menus, they're sorted into 2 categories: nacho taters and everything else. If you do a search for "nacho taters" and "curried chicken cranberry cousco...

Why the Exodus
I don't like to own a wardrobe of packs, so I have just 2 - a daypack and an all-season backpack. I love my Circuit, but I bought it about 3 years ago before it came in a small, which I really...

MLD Prophet vs. Exodus
I just got my Exodus (size small) on Saturday. With the pockets and sternum strap it weighs in at 16 oz on the nose. The bottom of the pack has a nifty feature to compress it. I found out about ...

Point6 Merino
This is almost good news. If they had merino tops, it would be great news. I was comparing my ancient, tattered smartwool light top yesterday with the replacement smartwool one I got with my ...

PCT in Winter
You need to consider the avalanche danger, too. Mr. B and I hike year-round in the Cascades in Washington, frequently on or near the PCT. We've had several avalanche courses, carry beacons, p...

Botach Tactical Customer Service
I had a similar experience to David's. They sent the inferior space blankets, rather than the correct order, took forever to send a return UPS shipping label, and only yesterday admitted to recei...

Boomer's Guide to Lightweight Backpacking by Carol Corbridge
I was very disappointed in this book. Luckily, I didn't buy it but had checked it out from the library. For starters, the book is in major need of copy editing. There are lots of awkward sent...

Backpacking Light Merino UL Pants
These do everything BPL promised - provide comfortable warmth without being bulky. I've worn them under non-winter hiking pants all winter, and they've extended the comfort range down to 7 de...

Golite Paradox pants
I'm not sure whether to review these in raingear or softshell clothing, because they're both. They are all-day pants, rather than rain pants to pull on over hiking pants and are made of a fab...

ULA Circuit
This pack was on backorder, but it came sooner than Brian said it would. I gave it a 2-day test this last weekend on a short backpacking trip in the Cascades. I was pleased that it was as comfortabl...
