oil change miles?
I remember a test in Consumer Reports a few years back. They tore down and measured the wear internals on the engines in a new set of taxicabs. For 100,000 miles (I think), they changed the oil in ...

WTB: sewing machine
Those Pfaffs are awesome! I think mine is the 130, and I've sewed up to 7 layers of Sunbrella canvas with it. Manufacturers used to put bigger motors on them, and use them commercially, accordi...

Rappelling rope?
Thanks for the help. Most of the caves we'd be going into only require a rope at the entrance. We have a dynamic rope for belay. We'll see how it all works out.

Rappelling rope?
I'll be using the rope to teach Boy Scouts how to rappel, and we're going caving in SE New Mexico later in the month. It would be nice if it could be used to top rope, but if that meant it ...

Rappelling rope?
Don't know if this is the place to ask or not, but what is a good rope (and good value) to use as a dedicated rappelling rope? Thanks.

Looking for a 2-person shelter for the CDT
Why not a Shangri-la 3? Most 2 man tents aren't really for 2. Unless one is a GF.

Great job young man! Wish I would have had it last weekend in Big Bend, maybe some of my veggies wouldn't have been crunchy!

Need cold storage Help
I don't think it's realistic to try to save, personally. And,.....uh.......there's more where that's coming from. Seems silly, but that's how it is. Dry ice would work if you...

Marmot Atom Mens Regular 40 Degree
Nice bag. 1/2 zipper is kind of a pain, and makes it hard to use as a quilt. Seems true to rating.

ULA Catalyst
Replaced my Exos 58 with this, much more comfortable, with more weight. Got a deal on a 2008 model, and added the dual stays. A lot bigger pack than I'll use most of the time. Gained some weight o...

ULA Circuit
Switched to this for more durability, and the ability to carry more water in the desert. Works like a champ, and you couldn't ask for better customer service.

Osprey Exos 58
I have to ding it a little for the hip belt. I think the hip belts on the large runs small, because it didn't wrap around me enough to be effective. And that may not be fair to ding it, because al...

Golite Ultra 20
Mine kept me warm in the upper 20s, so I'm happy. I'm not completely sure it would reach 20, and keep you warm for 8 hours. But it's a great product for a great price.
