Re: Tahoe - Yosemite Trail
Late July/early august = buggy most years, so aiming for high elevations/breezy spots to camp is a good idea in that area. Scenery generally less grand than further south but very nice still. I wou...

Re: Taking good parmesan cheese on the trail
I have carried dry, aged parmesan (the good stuff) in a chunk for up to two weeks no problem in daytime temps up to 75 degrees or so. I'd take a chunk and grate or shave as you need it. Tiny gr...

Re: Cold lower back: how did you solve the issue of clothes riding up?
interlocking layers. My base layer shirt is tucked into my long johns, my mid-layer is tucked into my puffy pants. So if my puffy jacket rides up, as it occasionally does, I'm still pretty wel...

Re: TNF Red Blaze seems too good to be true
I bet there's a mistake there somewhere. Do the math: 133 gm/sq. m = 3.92 oz/sq yd even if the liner is .9 oz fabric, you have 1.9 plus .9 plus 3.92 which is 6.72 oz/ sq. yd. for the sandwich...

Re: eVent available on OWFINC
Indeed. In fact I just got 3 yds. of the black (which I now don't need because I scored 5yds of even lighter eVent from another BPL member) I inquired and OWF told me the black was the lightest...
