My Locale Colorado Rockies
About Me I'm 45 years old, 6'4" and 195 lbs. I've backpacked in the Colorado Rockies, the Wasatch and Uinta mountains, and in Zions National Park. I mountain bike in the Colorado Rockies. I've kayaked in Yellowstone and on Flaming Gorge, and rafted the Green, Colorado and Snake rivers. My trips are usually a week long or less. I love to hike wherever I can. I'm an Assistant Scout Master and I'm often out with the Scouts. My immediate goal is to thru-hike the Colorado trail. I've lived in Utah, Ohio, Illinois, Argentina, California, and Colorado.

Re: Re: fire starter idea
Erin, Your link is not working. There appears to be an extra "http//". The flare is a great idea that, as I recall, hasn't been discussed much on these forums. How easy are they to light when you...

Re: Anyone using Reflectix fabric?
I can see two potential problems. Tailoring the Reflectix to fit the shape of you in the hammock would be difficult. Any void between you and the Reflectix will become a cold spot. This is a challe...

Re: Re: re:Going Wool? share your knowledge
Heretic! :) Certainly there's an inquisition for that, or is that just in New Zealand? Australia must at least use the "comfy chair" (Monty Python reference). You will appreciate the fire resistanc...

Re: Multi-Purpose Gear List
More advise, for what it's worth. Rather than creating a multipurpose list, create lists for specific outings and generalize from there. I would start from easy (summer) and work my way to hard (wi...

Re: re:Going Wool? share your knowledge
Brett, I've only worn this around town, not with a pack yet. I'll try it out and let you know if the pocket is a problem. I totally agree, a 1 or 2 in a light color is ideal for 3 season use.

Re: Going Wool? share your knowledge
Bill, thanks for starting the process. I will definitely lend my voice. Did you add thumb cuff holes to your design? I'll ask for that, and that they make it in a dark and a light color. The light ...

I don't know what the deal is but... every time I find something I really like it is discontinued. I wrote the initial review on the Shadows Hoody. I sent my review to Smartwool, with a plea that t...

Re: Multi-Purpose Gear List
Thom, I saw your previous post with the very spartan gear list. So... if you understand the extremes do you also understand what's in between? You need to give us the where or when, or the condit...
