This seems like a good time to bump my thread about my still unsold golite reeds based on the other thread about reeds. See description above. Also, I have a Golite Ultra 20 quilt - SHORT -...

floorless shelter techique
Greyson - one of the advantages I've found using a floorless tent on snow - I use a Gatewood Cape - is that I can dig a platform about a foot down and be below "ground level." The tr...

Trash in the woods
I doubt more signs about carrying out trash would help. The kinds of people who would need a sign to tell them how to behave responsibly also seem to think they're exempt from the rules. I p...

ULA's new owner
Yikes! I had to call ULA and find out. I just talked to Chris, who is indeed The New Owner. He's known Brian since before Brian began the business, and Brian is still there (still hobbling o...

The lowly $1.75 inflatable pool toy
Oh, no! Mr. B has been calling my Neoair a criminally-priced pool toy all summer. I absolutely cannot let him see this thread and find out he was right. Your specs show it is about 3" narro...

I had a similar experience to David's. They sent the inferior space blankets, rather than the correct order, took forever to send a return UPS shipping label, and only yesterday admitted to recei...

Boomer's Guide to Lightweight Backpacking by Carol Corbridge
I was very disappointed in this book. Luckily, I didn't buy it but had checked it out from the library. For starters, the book is in major need of copy editing. There are lots of awkward sent...

Backpacking Light Merino UL Pants
These do everything BPL promised - provide comfortable warmth without being bulky. I've worn them under non-winter hiking pants all winter, and they've extended the comfort range down to 7 de...
