Re: Re: Ursak and the JMT
I just got a permit for the JMT today and they SERIOUSLY stressed that bear cans are required. Play the game,it's far easier than the drama of not having a can. I've been checked by ran...

Re: Re: Re: "Thoughts on long distance food"
Ouch. Can't afford to spend $120 on dinners for backpacking! I'm probably being lazy looking at the store bought stuff...Maybe it's just time to put on the chef's hat and break ...

Re: "Thoughts on long distance food"
Thanks for the tips- I've never had Mary Janes. I can always recombine packages- i.. 3 dinners into 2, to boost calories.

Re: semetic semantics
All this other bickering aside, I take no offense Eugene. I think it's good to point things like this out to people; many have no idea of meanings/origins of words- in this case it's me. ...

As for Mac n' Cheese, no doubt their highest calories meal...and a serious effort to eat (though not bad tasting)...but a ton of calories. I always repackage, just using listed weights for s...

Re: Re: Nomads
I had no idea about that reference...Thanks for calling me out- I don't like it when things like that enter our language. My apologies and I'll make a note of it. Thanks.

Thoughts on long distance food
I'm going to be spending 12 days (maximum, but likely less) on the JMT and would like to do it without resupply. To-date, I've never gone for more than 7 days without resupply. I'm lo...

Re: 2010 John Muir Trail Gear List

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.

Dirty Girl Gaiters
These are great "dry" gaiters. As a trail runner I shopped and shopped for a good, breathable, and lightweight pair...not much out there. Most mainstream gear makers seem to seriously over...
