Trash in the woods
I doubt more signs about carrying out trash would help. The kinds of people who would need a sign to tell them how to behave responsibly also seem to think they're exempt from the rules. I p...

ULA's new owner
Yikes! I had to call ULA and find out. I just talked to Chris, who is indeed The New Owner. He's known Brian since before Brian began the business, and Brian is still there (still hobbling o...

Anyone recognize this PNW alpine lake? Yes.
Brad - it's probably Lower Ice Lake. I've inserted a shot from the other side of the lake below. One trip report is here:

The lowly $1.75 inflatable pool toy
Oh, no! Mr. B has been calling my Neoair a criminally-priced pool toy all summer. I absolutely cannot let him see this thread and find out he was right. Your specs show it is about 3" narro...

Leaving your gear at camp - theft concerns
I'm going to have to 'fess up sometime or other. Normally, it's not hard to remember the food bag, which I tie at the base of a tree. One of the beauties of the Ursack is I don't ...

Leaving your gear at camp - theft concerns
It was obviously not a trail angel supply spot. I had the bag well-hidden and way away from the trail. A reasonable reaction might have been it was an abandoned or forgotten food bag (rightfu...

Leaving your gear at camp - chocoholic concerns
I worry about theft, too, and take everything with me on the day trip except the tent, bag, and insulation (now a pricey Neoair). I also usually leave the Ursack foodbag tied up a few hundred feet...

Great video! I enjoyed your reaction to my stomping grounds. You guys are a lot easier to understand in print.

I had a similar experience to David's. They sent the inferior space blankets, rather than the correct order, took forever to send a return UPS shipping label, and only yesterday admitted to recei...

Boomer's Guide to Lightweight Backpacking by Carol Corbridge
I was very disappointed in this book. Luckily, I didn't buy it but had checked it out from the library. For starters, the book is in major need of copy editing. There are lots of awkward sent...

Backpacking Light Merino UL Pants
These do everything BPL promised - provide comfortable warmth without being bulky. I've worn them under non-winter hiking pants all winter, and they've extended the comfort range down to 7 de...

Golite Paradox pants
I'm not sure whether to review these in raingear or softshell clothing, because they're both. They are all-day pants, rather than rain pants to pull on over hiking pants and are made of a fab...
