Re: Re: BMWO
I followed the CDT up above the S Fork Two Med precisely because the lower crossing at the powerlines would have been a serious problem. In addition to being too deep to ford there, the river is i...

Re: Lightweight fleece vest
5 ounces is in the UL down/synthetic range, or the realm of heavyweight baselayer fabric. Justin's front-only vests are a great idea and very impressive for the weight and packed size. They d...

Re: BMWO
John, I agree on your distance thoughts, and like the idea of a fixed start but only a certain zone for the end. See you in July. Should still be plenty of water!

I'm out and back home. More snow than I expected and a lack of legs to go fast enough through it had me 7 miles behind schedule the first day, and more of the same and scouting (and not runnin...

Re: Re: Bob Open
It works by being a pain; no other way around it. Hitching from Monture up to the Flathead is quite doable, but things being what they are these days I'd leave yourself all day Friday if pos...

Patagonia Capilene 1 T-Shirt
Cap 1 seems to have changed very little since it was called silkweight capilene back in the day. It dries very quickly, wicks pretty well (though not as well as cap 2), and most importantly feels lig...

I use a cut-down 48" Ridgerest on every trip. Bombproof, comfy, light, cheap. In winter, I add a full length under it. I actually sleep better on this than most inflatables, but realize I&...

Gossamer Gear ThinLight insulation pad 1/8" approx. 2 oz.
It's hard to get more warmth for the weight (or price). I like having a few pieces to add in as supplementary feet and/or torso pieces. It is quite fragile. Do not leave this on the outside o...
