I like it
Very nice article. I like how you captured the moods of hiking a trail and the emotions of starting out and ending a trip. Good stuff.

Check this out Ty
Sorry I've missed so much of a very interesting debate, had to do other things. Ty Ty the 16/84 math seems to be the most important question so I'll give you my take on it and than recom...

Lets go back to first principals and go from there
Ty that’s a very good question, and one I’ve wrested with. I’m giving you my best shot at an honest answer but I’ll admit I’m not the expert. I know you’re coming at this from a part...

Re Re Water Drops
I used a poncho tarp for a while. It won't keep you as dry as a rainsuit in rain and its smallish as a shelter, you really need a bivy underneath it so factor that in as a cost. I'd per...

Water Drops
Oh come to think of it... I ran out of Aqua Mira near Lake City. If you use AQ I'd put some in a resupply. Or if you want to be cheap some Iodine tablets. You could probably drink a lot of...
