My Locale one snowball away from big trouble
About Me Hiker, rower, bicyclist. I go light because I'd rather feel like a guy walking in the woods than a pack-mule hauling a load. Now the maker of the Backcountry Boiler, undeniably the baddest way to heat water on the planet.

Re: Know of any good volunteer organizations?
Hi, Angela. I can strongly recommend AmeriCorps - I spent a year building houses with Habitat for Humanity. I think the satisfying, outdoor, physical labor is particularly appealing to those of us ...

Re: GPS Newbie
I'm going to go way out on a limb here and suggest that you take a look at the Holux M-241 GPS data logger if you just want something that will tell you where you are. It's a GPS for people...

Re: Standalone Bivy for Alpine Walking
