Re: Re: Alaskan contingent
David, I've got another fourteen more 9" saws I made up that I haven't done a PIF posting about, yet. Maybe I'll bring them along and hand them out at the GGG. I drive past Samue...

Alaskan contingent
Hiking Jim, Manfred and Michelle, and the rest of you lot are going to be there? I'll try to find a way to pop in for a bit. Hell, it's only 2,146 miles from home.

Thanks guys
Good to know. 30 screws in each worked great on the trail, but I'll remove the inner ones for better grip on bare concrete. Yeah, even on a hike in/to the woods, there are different surfaces to...

SAK parts
Oh, I ordered a replacement kit of SAK bits - tweezers, scissors, etc. so in a few days, I'll know the weights and could mail one off. Edited to correct: Guess I was optimistic. The kit con...

Nice scissors, 7 grams
Someone else needs to tell what these are and where to get them. I forget now, but I clicked on a link someone posted here. Nice cutting scissors. Great on moleskin, foil packets, enough to trim a ...

Re: What has worked and not worked over time?
You mean "What has stood the test of time? What gear have you been using for years and years, even after comparing it to other options?" And those other items that seemed great, but are...

Settling silt from water.

Kelty packs revisited
+1 on a classic Kelty frame pack. I bought one, new, about 10 years ago, because there are some things it just does better - haul 35-45* pounds and a fair bit of volume on a hot day, for instance....

Re: Thru-Hiking: When to plan and when to let it go?
+1 for realizing S#!+ will happen and +1 for aspiring to not over-plan things. On my own (shorter) trips and when being a remote trail angel for others, I'd say a well-organized list of sup...
