Ok, more specifically, has anyone here ever hiked or biked the trail?

But can it be just a bug net?
But Logan, can the ProTrail be pitched as just a bug tent? I don't think it can. I agree, it's a wonderful UL 1P shelter (indeed IMO it's a contender for "current best bugproof 1...

The inner bugnet is the problem
Can the ProTrail be set up as just a bug tent? I don't think so. It's an awesome shelter, but I don't think it meets that criterium. I could be wrong, though. However, the TT Strato...

100-mile trips...
I have to say, if I had 8 weeks free I'd very seriously consider using 6 of them to hike the Colorado Trail. But two weeks would be a VERY pleasant Wonderland Trail hike. That would be my v...

Quilts are something you sort of have to decide to try for yourself. I have a quilt that I use sometimes, and sometimes I use a bag. Don't feel pressured to try a quilt if you are unsure- tha...

Mary Jane's Farm Sante Fe Pasta
I just got back from a Wind River Range traverse in which I tried a couple of Mary Jane's Farm meals for the first time- I had never heard of them- and I'm impressed. Fist, my caveat: I hav...

Klepper Double wood framed folding kayak

Sawyer In-Line Filter
I have a slightly different kit- the 0.1 micron 4-way filter. Of the filters available I give it a 5. It's not perfect, but IMHO it is the best that is available, hands down. The 4-way kit come...
