Packing Contrail in a Jam2
I can't seem to find anything doing google searches tonight. I noticed the Contrail will fit in the outside zipper pocket of the Jam2. Anyone else carrying their tent this way?

Z-Lite in a Jam2
I think I figured out a solution for my problem. I've been strapping my z-lite on the outside of my Vapor Trail. That's not an option on the Jam2. I cut off 4 panels and I'm going to us...

I almost ordered my girls some Comets the other day. They're on sale and I had a coupon for an additional $20 off. I kept reading reviews about problems with the "windowpanes" though....

Cats Rule, Dogs Drool
I'd prefer to take my cat backpacking, but I doubt he would be interested in sitting on my pack all day. :) p.s. The horse riders in my nearest national forest trash the trails. They ride to...
