Re: Re: Re: Did see some UL on the JMT
I did a section on the JMT a couple years ago with a small pack (compared to the norm) and I had a ranger comment to me with suspicion that my pack looked too small to contain a bear canister. I of...

Re: RE: How Much Extra Food? If Any
It almost always works out that I've brought too much food so I never actually plan to do it. On my last trip, I actually mis-counted the number of meals to put in my pack and did have to kind ...

Re: Favorite spoon
Right now I am using the short-handled titanium spoon. I don't eat out of bags so don't need the long handle. I don't mind that the bowl is smallish. I like the flattened end to the spo...

Re: cook/no cook weight difference
I'm not sure the weight difference, but for my no-cook trip my kitchen was a plastic screw-top jar, a plastic "cup" made from the bottom of a plastic jar, a plastic peanut butter jar ...

Re: Re: Dehydrating Soy Sauce?

Re: 'Trail names'
