"As for hunting, hunting is not "chasing" around animals. You would not take 2 steps at a gazelle before its long out of range for any spear." The video link I posted above s...

Re: Re: Re: Ice Cream on the PCT
I'd differ with you on the necessity of running when hunting as well as ultrarunning not being healthy. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9wI-9RJi0Qo Humans are a formidable running creature...

Re: Ice Cream on the PCT
Another way I look at this: We don't hunt anymore, at least not in the traditional sense (I must assume that taking an elk at 250 yards with a .300 magnum is a bit different than running it ...

Re: Why not a Heetsheets instead of a mylar blanket?
I carry a Heatsheets bivy on long trail runs or situations where there's a possibility I don't get home that night. I figure it'll do a few main things for me: 1. Protect from windch...

Re: High Speed Backpacking

Re: Re: Up Hills v.s. Downhills and speed
I think coming up with truisms and formulas about uphill pace is impossible. It's obvious that the faster the overall pace, including uphill, the faster you finish. But one must also keep e...

Re: Re: Re: Re: Up Hills v.s. Downhills and speed
I'm hardly a fast/elite trailrunner, but I'll certainly vouch for the fact that downhill is way harder, at least in form, than uphill. On the uphill I can just settle into a rhythm and cru...

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...
