My Locale Western US
About Me Mostly 2 to 3 day loops, with a couple weeklong trips too, likely going 2 weeks or more with upcoming severance. Lightening up but with an eye towards toughness and hiking convenience (secure drying on the trail. quick set up, etc...), but also a bit better food (and beverage) for most overnights. Then again I might want to do a spartan "fast n'light" overnight ... and the gear closet grows.
I'll update my gear list tomorrow ...

Re: A week in the Weminuche Wilderness Sept. 2014
Great way to spend a week. Take it you were able to check out Silverton? Nothing in those streams except trout dumped in by Colorado fish& game ... probably.

Enjoyed the photos. Were the potatoes, carrots, and sausage a stew or soup (been reading the Complete Walker and thinking stew recipes)

Re: $1500 fee for "commercial" use in USFS wilderness lands
The reason they are doing this is probably due to exhausting their firefighting budget on these western mega fires for the second year in a row. http://www.outsideonline.com/news-from-the-field/...

Forest svc budget
Might have to do with generating more revenue since the increase in forest fires has depleted their firefighting budget for the second year in a row. http://www.outsideonline.com/news-from-the-f...
