Re: Re: water drop
sounds good, I'll just plan on carrying it- not an overly big weight savings :)

water drop

Re: Saturday's Run
that sounds good, earlier better than latter- I know my training isn't what it should be for a run of this length, the more time I have w/o resorting to my headlamp the better :) if we onl...

Re: @Mike
I'm going to stick w/ my Sabino Trails, just not enough miles on the FluidFlex to trust them- probably overkill for JT, but I know they work w/ long miles I am quite pi$$ed that the FluidFle...

weather
looks like they changed the forecast recently- was highs in the 50's lows in 30's, now looks like highs in 70's lows in mid 40's; of course w/ a week out that certainly is subject t...

map/camp gear
I ordered a Nat Geo map so should be gtg in that regard Craig- a camp chair would be great if you have a spare- I think I can squeeze in my quilt/neoair w/o much trouble so should be good there,...

I thought I had added my review earlier on this lamp, but hadn't :) I've been very impressed w/ this diminutive lamp- if you're looking for a lamp for hours of night travel- this isn'...

Montrail Sabino Trail
My first pair are over a year old now w/ ~ 500 backpacking/trail running miles- there is some light fraying here and there, but overall are still in very good condition. I've never had a hot spot...

Dirty Girl Gaiters
I'd probably go 4.5 just because of the needed velcro, but I like these enough I wanted to round up. They are breathable, they are light and they do a great job of keeping stuff out of your sho...

Smartwool Beanie
my Smartwool beanie makes into both my day pack and multi-day trips, light weight, warm, takes up almost no space- I don't go anywhere w/o it going on two years and it still looks/fits great
