About Me After having worked for four years at UC Davis Outdoor Adventures (as an assistant manager and guide) and two years at Shasta Mountain Guides (as a guide), my wife and I have decided it's time for a change. We got rid of everything we owned and are now in the midst of a multi-year world travel. We are mostly interested in healthy food and backpacking in all of the great mountain ranges. When we had a "home" we enjoyed cycling, backcountry skiing, running, and gardening.

Answers?
Jeff - We'll ask Milo about purchases from the US. We're asking that question of all companies on Days 2-4. Both Milo and Gelanots say that the fabric is 20,000 mm/h2o and 20,000 g/m^2/...

Conditioning
I'm closer to Roger's side of the spectrum on this. One to two liters for a day is fine, if you've conditioned your body for this. I worked as a guide on Mt. Shasta for the two prior...
