Re: Re: Moving Sideways
West Coast Doug? Really? I owe you a scotch. Maybe you'll be close enough that I can make good on it. Good luck in this new shift, I hope it proves to be what you're looking for.

Re: gopro
Thanks for the offer Dan, that's a great deal. I've got to pass though. I just picked up an older model with a bunch of accessories for $100. I promised myself I'd go cheap on this t...

Dirty Girl Gaiters
These are great "dry" gaiters. As a trail runner I shopped and shopped for a good, breathable, and lightweight pair...not much out there. Most mainstream gear makers seem to seriously over...
