"Lost cost trail: like hiking on sand?"
Thanks everyone. I do acknowledge that my question is slightly ridiculous; hence the subject line. I've read a number or threads about this hike and don't recall a lot of discussion about t...

Thanks Billy for pointing that out...have you ever hiked on this trail? or just spouting like a whale?

"Big Agnes UL tent users: footprint/ground-cloth yes or no"
Polycryo. Works great on my UL7 solo. I actually prefer it to a factory groundcloth because it's clear and you can spot out pine cones etc. that might puncture your pad. And way lighter.

Lost cost trail: like hiking on sand?
I'm thinking of doing this trail at long last. But I don't like hiking on loose sand. Given that this is the lost coast...but one person who's done this trail told me that it's most...

"Open-Ended Solo Trip in Washington State"
Between Wenatchee and Chelan, on the west side of the river, there's a road that will take you into a trailhead that gets you to Glacier Peak destinations. Sorry, I'm at work and can't ...

"Which new WIDE warm inflatable sleep mat, NeoAir Xtherm or Exped?"

"Open-Ended Solo Trip in Washington State"
Tom: I was thinking that if Puppy Love was coming in over Cascade Pass, it's not too far to head down the Stehekin Road to the trailhead in to Glacier Peak. I forget the name of the river that ...

"Winter down jacket for 3 season use?"
I'm with Matt; hard to imagine being too warm sitting around camp. I use a giant Brooks Range with a hood--14 ounces, I think--which most people will laugh at for summer use. OH, soo toasty! Le...

Vasque Breeze GTX
These boots really are a breeze on your feet. Unlike another reviewer, I found these boots to have terrific ankle support. However, the deal-killer for me is the relatively narrow toe box. Full disclo...
