My Locale West Virginia
About Me I was a guide for many years in Yellowstone, Denali, and Black Canyon of the Gunnison. Moved to Eugene, Oregon, for my Master's and got a good taste of the PNW. Now I'm in West Virginia making maps for all of our wonderful national parks with the NPS Publications program at Harpers Ferry Center.

Done!
All the supplies arrived and everything is looking great. I've found that I can fit my AquaMira with mixing cap, a contact lens case (each side mixed for treating the bottles of water I keep o...

McMaster-Carr
Search McMaster-Carr for something like "stainless steel cloth"; it'll get you there. McMaster-Carr may have the most amazingly simple and well-designed webpage I've ever used in...

Well...
Yep, I'm on 10.4.8 on a MacBook, running Quicktime 7.1.3, which I think is the most recent, and I've tried Firefox, Camino, Safari, even IE running in CrossOver, even though it hurt me to d...

David, How dare you insinuate that I'm on Windows using IE? ;) I'm on a mac using Firefox/Safari, and the video still doesn't work for me. However, I was able to download it with the...

Getting there
David, Thanks for the durability info. Now that I have the keg in my hand, it's actually a lot more durable than I thought it would be. I see what you mean about hurting it during a "wh...

Bearikade
Wow... $200? I think that's out of my price range. I'm hoping that a BearVault like the kind they sell over at Gossamer Gear would be ok? If only Ursacks with aluminum liners could be ...

Bandwidth is always a major issue with online multimedia, so I understand where you're coming from. I also completely agree that the content and scope of BPL's articles and podcasts is muc...

David, Still accumulating the supplies to make your set-up. Pretty much just waiting on the can (KY has very silly laws about alcohol and those big kegs are hard to find) and ti windscreen, both ...

Recorders + Mics
Glad someone called me out on being too picky! :) I'm not sure that this falls into the "affordable" category, but the Roland R-09 will record up to 24-bit/48kHz WAV and 320kbps MP...

Bitrate
Dr. J et al, I'm a composer, electronic musician, and do some audio engineering, so perhaps I'm just too picky. But the 64kbps bitrate of the podcasts drives me nuts! I know it saves you...

Montbell Peak Shell
I was a guide in Denali NP during the summer of 2008. It rained almost every day for all of July and the first week of August this year, and I was out in it all day, every day. My MontBell Peak She...

This review is really a 4.5. Brian has always thoughtfully and informatively responded to my emails. His products are absolutely top notch, and I have no doubt that he would stand firmly behind hi...

Marmot Ion
Man, what a disappointment. I, too, got stuck with the Campmor version of the Ion. I'm quite thin and short-waisted, so the Ion's athletic cut and short length were great for me. The fit of...

I've owned the H20 Amigo for about one year, with most of my use concentrated in Yellowstone and the Tetons during the summer of 2006. When I'm by myself, I tend to stick to AquaMira becaus...
