Re: Black Diamond Trail Shock
Count me on the side of rigid poles. I used anti-shock poles once...and promptly gave them away. I couldn't help but feel like I was never planting them firmly or they were flexing. Anti...

Re: Re: Interested
I'm still considering this trip if you end up starting on Saturday morning (I'm up for super early and could make the drive) or if there's a way to catch up on Friday night. I just don...

Re: Re: A More Peaceful and Sustainable Neighborhood
Trust me Ben, I'm not arguing for the method I describe, it's just the way I see things going. I'm just concerned that the world has been working within a certain framework for so long...

Montbell Thermawrap jacket
A great jacket- my XL weighs in at just over 10 oz. with its stuff sack. Very simple, functional design- perfect for 3 seasons in the Sierras when combined with a base layer and/or shell system.
