Re: re: treeline
Thanks for the feedback, Lori. I appreciate the head's up on foxtail pines, which I had to google to check out. Very cool trees. As often as I go into the wilderness (which is fairly often b...

Treeline hammocking talk

Re: My thoughts
Boy, I was close to buying a Sony RX100III for backpacking (still might), but the one thing I can't wrap my head around is the focal length. 24mm (for brevity, I'll be referring to 35mm eq...

Re: Re: Re: Tripod thoughts
