My Locale Colorado Rockies
About Me I'm 45 years old, 6'4" and 195 lbs. I've backpacked in the Colorado Rockies, the Wasatch and Uinta mountains, and in Zions National Park. I mountain bike in the Colorado Rockies. I've kayaked in Yellowstone and on Flaming Gorge, and rafted the Green, Colorado and Snake rivers. My trips are usually a week long or less. I love to hike wherever I can. I'm an Assistant Scout Master and I'm often out with the Scouts. My immediate goal is to thru-hike the Colorado trail. I've lived in Utah, Ohio, Illinois, Argentina, California, and Colorado.

Re: Re: To Use Footbeds or Not to Use Footbeds
I use custom made orthotics. They were not made to fix any problems. What I like is that all the footwear I use now has the same footbed, even rentals.

Re: Re: Re: Re: My Gearlist, Please take a look
In my opinion a good old fashion compass is worth carrying. No batteries to fail and no calibration issues. It doesn't have to be expensive or fancy, simple is good.

Re: Re: Re: Re: What About Wool?
There is a lanolin wash for wool diapers I was thinking about, rather than traditional DWR treatments.

Re: Re: Re: Potty Trowel pattern
I just wanted to give my thoughts on the "lanyard" hole. I agree with Crazy Pete, as a trowel the lanyard hole will go unused by me, but if I need to use this as a stake the hole will com...

Re: Re: What About Wool?
I love my Ibex stuff as well. I've been wondering for some time about adding lanolin to wool to increase water repellence and have not heard anything definitive yet. I'm reluctant to experi...

Re: pack cover V internal protection
I've always favored liners for the reasons given above. In the latest issue (#6) of BPL Magazine, I was surprised to see Ryan recommend a pack cover rather than a liner in the "Cold & ...

Re: Re: Re: Warm Drinks
Richard, my mother used to make hot jello for me as a kid when I would get sick. I haven't had that in years. That's another good idea. I remember it tasting good but my tastes may have cha...

Re: Insulated Chaps - Arms or Legs
Bill, what a great idea! I love that these become bibs when worn on your legs. I wear bibs when I ski and I've often thought a light weight version would be ideal for backpacking. Bibs direct m...

Re: Warm Drinks
Bill, I've never considered drinking Carnation Instant Breakfast warm. More food for thought. I'll try it. I've said it before but, it makes me very happy that you're out on the trail.
