My Locale Western Washington
About Me I started backpacking again in 2008, after a long hiatus---I haven't been since I was a kid. Loving learning about a different way to hike---backpacking was no fun when I was a teen-ager, stuff was too heavy! Completed my dream of hiking the Wonderland Trail in 2010, now onto more hikes in the Cascades and Olympics.

Painful callus
Don't know what was making your callus painful, but for me it often happens when the callus is dry and cracking. Application of some sort of ointment to moisturize and protect from abrasion, s...

dry baking vs. steam baking
I've done some steam baking, a la Sarah's instructions at The dry baking looks very intriguing, but I have no interest in Esbit cooking. The steam baking I have done...

loganbread GF?
I look at recipes like this, and sigh...I don't think it would be possible to make Loganbread gluten-free (wouldn't hold together) and dairy-free (would mess with the fat content, although ...

looks comfy
I would like the comfiness of stretch fabric, but the dark color and lack of pockets was the deal breaker for me. I'm eagerly awaiting the ability to put stuff in pockets that stay on me no ma...

Montbell Outpace Parka
The Outpace Parka is a decent jacket, but it has some design details that could be better. It sheds rain really well. It is pretty light and packable. Its breathability seems to be fairly good, alth...
