Re: Nylatron
I have not heard of Nylatron and am not sure what you are trying to make, but you might look into delrin which is a very commonly used engineering plastic with good strength to weight.

Re: Maxima air porosity
Thank you, Richard. The two micro graphs look identical to me - did you perhaps post the same image twice by accident?

Re: Major John Muir Trail changes
The Half Dome permits have been quite successful in reducing the cluster-*$%# on that trail, so I'm hopeful that this will have the same effect on the JMT corridor in the park. Doesn't affe...

Re: Sierra Nevada Red Fox in Yosemite
Awesome. I've had two close fox (not red fox) encounters. Once while running at Pinnacles around dusk I stopped to enjoy the sunset and moments later a fox sauntered across the trail not 10 fee...

Re: Re: Re: Can I use a Hoover Wilderness Permit to access the JMT?
For Whitney Portal specifically you need an exit stamp. For any other trailhead exit e.g. Onion Valley, Cottonwood Lakes or whatever, regardless of whether they are in Hoover or not you don't.

Re: Overnight Snowshoe Trip in Yosemite ~ December 2014
Nice one Andy. Even with the promise of two sleeping bags I can't get my wife to come snow camping. I'm jealous of even the small amount of snow you two had.

Re: Ultralight Hunting: Towards a Coherent Definition

Re: Re: Re: Ice Is Nice But Snow Is Better
We probably did about 40 miles total. 12, 10, 18 approximately each day. The snowshoes are Northern Lites Elite, I think 42 oz/pair. They are really light, but the crampons are sub-par compared to ...

I had the same experience as everyone else here. Joe got me a customized piece of gear on time and was very responsive to my questions and requests. Can't do much better than that.

The Ohm is my go-to pack for trips that don't require a bear can. You can fit a Bearikade in it, but it's not very comfortable because it bulges into your back. I put a plastic frame sheet fro...
