My Locale one snowball away from big trouble
About Me Hiker, rower, bicyclist. I go light because I'd rather feel like a guy walking in the woods than a pack-mule hauling a load. Now the maker of the Backcountry Boiler, undeniably the baddest way to heat water on the planet.

Re: Dolly Sods Loop
Hi Chris! How's the law school hunt going? If you had to, absolutely had to, cut something out, I would probably suggest just hiking a loop through the Sods. Here's a good map and info: ...

Re: 4oz
4oz is a lot, especially for a molded plastic item like that. Overweight and underweight items should only come from variance between items, and I don't see much room for variance with that pro...

Re: Re: Carbon/Cuben Snowshoes
