Re: Re: Re: Re: High Speed Backpacking - why
It can't always be like that, but it's good when it is. I'm currently looking forward to a SLOW trip I have planned this summer: Heading up to Sixty Lakes Basin and finding a quiet ...

Re: High Speed Backpacking - why
Blistered feet, sore legs, dehydration, sunburn. Salt in the eyes, chaffed thighs, and a blackened toenail. Looking up and thinking "If I don't make that ridge in one hour I'm gonn...

Re: Ul Dry Ice Cooler
