First-timer... JMT 2012

Re: Cuben: Button Hole?
Maybe a metal eyelet would work? I use them as drain holes in cuben pack pockets. The 1/16" and the larger 3/32" shock cord fits. Joe @ Zpacks also uses them for drain holes in cuben pack...

Strange Trail Signs
I saw this on the trail today, glad I'm not in charge of trail maintenance. Any other strange trail signs out there?

MYOG cuben pack

Re: Piedra Blanca to Punch Bowls

12 oz M50 summer quilt
Thanks Bruce. M50 is easier to work with than SevenD or the old orange M50, but a little more slick and challenging than M90 or 1.1 oz nylon. It helped to use an iron on some of the edges prior to ...
