Travel Light Eat Heavy is back in print
I just ordered a copy from a very nice woman who owns a bookstore in the home town where the author lives. She said it is a reprint of the first edition, and she just got them today. Price is $17...

Minus 33 wool
I have the women's baselayer crew 170 and the balaclava, which I sewed together and use as a hoody. I don't think the men's shirts come in anything lighter than the midweight 230. I c...

Merino buff weight
According to Dan in another thread they are "54g 30" long versus 20" for standard buff." It turns out my order didn't get through the ether vapors for some reason, and ...

Cheap firesteels
Tom - take a look at Brad's link to goinggear's firesteels. The 1/4" X 3" one, plus postage, is a little over $4. For a striker, if you don't want to use your knife, carry a...

Wonderland Trail: circumnavigation around Mt. Rainier
Great pictures! It's a beautiful area. I'm hoping I can talk my brother into hiking it with me next summer. I have a few questions: How much in advance of your trip did you get your pe...

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...
