Thoughts on Shangri La 3
I just returned from a trail run in which I was daydreaming quite a bit about what gear I'd be taking on the JMT with me this summer. I've decided on carrying my Shangri La 3. Thinking ...

Re: Re: Re: boys vs girls
I'd hardly call my kids "outdoor gifted". They're just kids, we just try to do a lot. I trust them and I try not to be too conservative in what I expose them to. I think kids a...

Re: boys vs girls

Re: Re: Re: Why pack out poo?
