Re: 100s in JT
I think anything does well on class 3 in JT...hard to slip when you're climbing on a cheese grater. It helps that the soles are thin- I hate climbing in mushy shoes. I think a day of seriou...

Re: Re: Re: T 100s
Yeah, I don't know. It probably depends entirely on how you're training. I know Krupicka didn't just start running 100s in racing flats overnight. I do know it's a VERY BAD i...

Re: T 100s
Art: Do you mean a 100 mile hike? I don't see why not. They were originally designed by Tony Krupicka and the Skaggs brothers (from what I understand) for ultrarunning. They're doing...

Re: Re: Minimal hiking shoes
I think you're on the right track as well Diane, I've found the same thing from similar experiences. I started running distance in minimal shoes (New Balance MT100s, basically a trail ra...

Re: Black Diamond Trail Shock

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 :Warfighters: History of the term
On the concept of the necessity of a purely "defensive" military: A highly subjective term to say the least! Hasn't the United States been "defending" itself from terr...

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...

Re: Re: defensive war

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.
