Re: SS2
Awesome shelter--a real game-changer in my opinion. Like I said, I've never had trouble pitching it at GNP campsites. Because of the large footprint, I did have to do a little creative thin...

Re: Relying on the kindness of strangers.
"Same route but a different event . . ." +1, well said. It's certainly not what I would want out of a PCT hike (which, honestly, I'm not sure I want anyway). That said, my ...

Re: Update for Stephen
So, I picked up a backcountry permit this morning for tomorrow night. A buddy was interested in seeing more of Glacier, and there were a couple of sites available in the Belly River. I arrived at...

Re: Re: glacier backcountry campsite question

Re: Re: Insulation for GNP in Aug

Re: Bear Spray
FYI--you can now rent bear spray in Apgar. I believe it's about $5/day, unless you have to use it, then you pay for the can. In fact, the rental place is right next to the permit office in Ap...
