Re: Re: Re: Re: Is non-waterproof footwear really better?
To each their own. But I find it interesting to note that none of the big-mile trekkers I've read about- Skurka, Jardine, Erin McKittrick and Bretwood Higman, to name a few- wear GTX footwea...

Re: Re: Anyone travel Rae Lakes Loop? 2010
Glen Pass is not to be worried about. I was just over Kearsarge Pass and in the area. 50% of the ice on a lake I passed going in was gone on my way out... The snow is melting at a really rapid...

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: People are ruining backpacking.
The picture is at Kearsarge Lakes, looking out at the Kearsarge Pinnacles. So sweet. I was out my door at 6 am, on the trail at 10:30, at the lakes by 1:30. I'll write up a little report...

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.
