Rocky Goretex socks
Lynn - The socks themselves are pretty waterproof, but water would get in over the tops if you were submerged deeper than the height of stretchy band on the tops of the socks.

Cranberry Macadamia Cereal Bars
Where's the chocolate? !! Since I don't buy or eat store-bought cereal, I need some actual names for ideas. Please don't say rice crispies. I already know I won't buy those. W...

Rocky Goretex socks
Clint - REI sells them. I'd be very very very careful ordering from Botach. In fact, I wouldn't. Based on personal experience, if they're out, they'll still take your money and t...

WTB: fixing your feet - 4th edition
Ted- have you read the book? I checked it out from the library. Both Mr. B and I thought it was a sorry mix of content-free information and a discussion of the obvious.

Can I wash my pack?
I wash mine in the bathtub to avoid any problems with the agitator in the washing machine catching the straps. Then I hang it on the showerhead to drip dry.

America, Americans
Yeah, I know. But it still bugs me! I think it's rather a pompous habit we've gotten ourselves into.

Explaining Canada to Americans
I know I'm a lone voice crying in the wilderness, but when I hear people say America, I wonder if they're talking about north or south? I know it's a habit, and has become a tradition ...

Hah! I'll see if I can get Mr. B to email me the picture he took. It's on the computer at the cabin. Otherwise you'll have to wait a few days. Which is a good thing, now that I thin...

"The trees care not what you look like..." So true. But if my girls had seen me Saturday on our lunch break wearing my rain skirt, which adds a lot of warmth during a break, by the wa...

Botach Tactical Customer Service
I had a similar experience to David's. They sent the inferior space blankets, rather than the correct order, took forever to send a return UPS shipping label, and only yesterday admitted to recei...

Boomer's Guide to Lightweight Backpacking by Carol Corbridge
I was very disappointed in this book. Luckily, I didn't buy it but had checked it out from the library. For starters, the book is in major need of copy editing. There are lots of awkward sent...

Backpacking Light Merino UL Pants
These do everything BPL promised - provide comfortable warmth without being bulky. I've worn them under non-winter hiking pants all winter, and they've extended the comfort range down to 7 de...

Golite Paradox pants
I'm not sure whether to review these in raingear or softshell clothing, because they're both. They are all-day pants, rather than rain pants to pull on over hiking pants and are made of a fab...

This pack was on backorder, but it came sooner than Brian said it would. I gave it a 2-day test this last weekend on a short backpacking trip in the Cascades. I was pleased that it was as comfortabl...
