Re: Canon S100 vs Panasonic GF3 [14mm f 2.5-22] Low Light Performance Comparison ??????

Re: Backpacking food
I just buy food in the grocery store. Knorr pasta or rice side dishes are good, especially with a small bag of chicken or salmon added. Mac and Cheese is good, or anything that can be cooked in a s...

Re: 2 night trips in the southeastern US?
The Standing Indian loop on the AT is quite nice. It's about 25 miles, and makes a great 2-night hike. Park at the trailhead parking area at Standing Indian Campground, off US 64 about 12 miles...
