re: Flash range
I'm curious, Bob--does the flash tend to scare them off, or do you have to add some loud noise (banging pots, yell at them, firecrackers, etc.)? My air horn does a good job on them in Glacier/Y...

Glacier NP Mid August-Sept 1 Gear
I think you will be fine with what you have listed. There usually isn't a lot of rain in late August. I would forget a pack cover, and just be sure that all of your down things are securely sto...

I agree that the Akto is a very strong and high quality 4-season solo tent. But I must add an anecdote to illustrate the what I feel is the tent's main weakness. In early October of '06 we wer...
