Re: My (failed) attempt at a SHR section.
Your pics are great. Your symptoms describe exactly how I feel when I'm not eating enough. Slow, lethargic, walking up hill is suddenly much harder, poor judgement, more likely to make rout...

Re: 14 days in SEKI, Sept 14-28. Any comments on this gear list
Love the pics. Those are some gnarly clouds. Sounds like you know what you're getting in to. I'm sure you will have a great time - that is truly an all-star tour of SEKI. This is my favorit...

Re: 14 days in SEKI, Sept 14-28. Any comments on this gear list
I'd bring the warmer clothing and quilt. It can get really cold in late September. I did the Rae Lakes loop during the last weekend of September a few years ago and down at 8,000 ft the daytime...

Re: Midway Traverse
Thanks for sharing Amy! What's the name of the pass you went over north of Lion Lake, and how was it?

Re: GGG 6.0
Jacob, that sounds like a lot of work for what is a glorified weekend of camping in the woods. I for one don't think the GGG needed more organization than last year and I would be happy if 2014...

Re: Two-person sleep system
Check out the Zpacks twin size quilts. My wife and I tried one out a few weeks ago and loved it, and have since ordered one. For keeping your pads together, I agree that the sleeping pad gap suc...

Re: Did see some UL on the JMT
Erik, I agree with your post 100%. I honestly can't remember if we saw you guys or not, we did meet some people from San Diego and we heard about a big scout group somewhere near Rosalie...

Re: Did see some UL on the JMT
Hi Erik, I was on the JMT two weeks ago and could have been one of those fast-moving, running-shoe wearing UL'ers that you saw at Thousand Island Lake. I didn't have spare shoes, a stool...

Re: Sixty Lakes Basin, 8/15 thru 8/16/2013
Cool trip Craig. I'm jealous of your ease of Eastside access. It's a 7 hour drive for me so I don't go over there unless I have 3-4 days to spend, and I never get to go over there in th...

zpacks Company
I had the same experience as everyone else here. Joe got me a customized piece of gear on time and was very responsive to my questions and requests. Can't do much better than that.

ULA Ohm
The Ohm is my go-to pack for trips that don't require a bear can. You can fit a Bearikade in it, but it's not very comfortable because it bulges into your back. I put a plastic frame sheet fro...
