Re: SMD Lunar Solo Enhanced
As a former Lunar Solo E owner I'd recommend the TarpTent Sublite Sil instead. I found it difficult to get a good pitch for the Lunar Solo on anything less than level ground, and when not taug...

Re: Scarp 1 Revision

"Right now I'm looking at the delorme PN-40. I like the features + the data plan but they don't have mac support." Yes, but you can set your Mac up for dual boot. For the ...

For something in the -40F range I'd suggest a down bag from Feathered Friends or Western Mountaineering.

Re: Re: Sleeping & Shelter
"we used a tent that was made virtually like a baffled sleeping bag but without insulation in the baffles" Are you referring to a Stephenson tent? I use an older 2R for winter camping.

Re: powemax fuel - lowest temp

Re: powemax fuel - lowest temp
"Did you use the powermax canister cold - or did you have to warm it up at all?" In the Northeast I usually just run them cold, as long as it isn't too cold, although as Roger poi...

Big Sky International
I ordered a tent about mid-December of last year also, and would be stunned at this point if it ever showed up. I suspect that you'll never get a refund simply because Big Sky doesn't have it - the f...
