No, not a mastodon
I was packing up my Absoroka last night to see if my 3-night gear kit would fit, and to test my mods, when I was reminded of this thread. Upon close inspection, I've decided that the logo isn&#...

Re: Sleeping pants
I'm not sure, Richard, but probably the Thermawraps add 10-15* F of warmth (when combined with a hooded puffy coat, good hat & gloves/mitts, and thick fleece sleeping socks) to my sleeping ...

Re: Sleeping pants
I really like my MontBell synthetic fill Thermawrap pants (U.S. size L, 11.6 oz.) for cold conditions. OK, my WM Flight pants are certainly warmer and 1.5 oz. heavier, but the Thermawraps are easie...

re: Tent stakes for Glacier
You will be pitching your shelter in well-used tent sites, which means packed soil. I suggest using something that you can pound into the ground. I prefer MSR Groundhogs, but they are probably heav...

Re: Bright red chairs
-B.G.- is right, the only two 14ers in CO that you can drive to the very top are Pike's Peak and Mt. Evans. Mt. Antero does have a rough 4x4 road that goes fairly close to the summit though.

@ John--JB thread drift

Here's how I did it Jimmer
Like I mentioned up above, I wanted to lighten up my original Reactor. So I found a food can that fit on top of the burner nicely. I punched some holes to allow the hot gasses to escape (probably n...

Re: MSR Windboiler – Burner Reset
That's a great feature, Jim. I bought one of the original Reactors a few years ago. I tried to make it work with a MYOG pot stand for a much lighter pot (Titan kettle). I proceeded to overheat ...

re: The Fleece Thickens
Max, you could try to keep your girfriend and the cat in the garage, and store your fleece in the guest bedroom closet. But I expect that they would each find their ways into the 2 bedrooms. No way...

Hilleberg Akto
