Re: Re: Re: Went away
I think there are two keys to using a non-full-length pad: 1. Use other items to insulate/cushion your lower legs and feet (ex: pack or sit pad) 2. Camp on softer or more insulated ground (ex...

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Emigrant Wilderness 6/13 - 6/15
I enjoyed your pictures. I didn't know there were any spots to camp near Camp Lake. The fish were really active there. On 6/2 this year, I crossed Cherry Creek and it was knee deep.

Re: Re: Re: Double Hang
With the PCT method, I am not tying off to any tree. The bear can come and gnaw on the line hanging down all it wants and it won't affect my food bag. My food food bag is suspended midway betwe...

Re: Re: Steaming fish
Curious how you prepare the fish for poaching in the backcountry? Just find a rock, fillet, and cut it up? I've only ever smoked trout on a stick or roasted in aluminum foil due to the minimal ...

Re: Explorer = very limited navigational functions
