Alisha - if you are a size small and like the color coral, I have one only slightly used that I'll sell you for $40. I upgraded to an ID eVent and don't need it. Send me a PM if you're...

Ultra-light living, or Ultra-less
Good point, Bill. If owning something fills a useful purpose, then keep it! My own disposition is such that I am much more comfortable with fewer things. As much of a purger as I am, I do have s...

remove compresson sack- and gain space!
Thanks for the report! It seems counter-intuitive to put a fluffy sleeping bag into a backpack and still have room for everything else. I've read about doing that here on BPL and plan to try ...

Icebreaker in the dryer

Western Washington BPLers Unite
It sounds like the consensus is to do a day trip first and then plan a backpack trip. If you're interested in Skyline Lake near Stevens Pass, we could hike to the lake (it's only an hour...

Great idea! Saturdays work best for me for a day trip. I'm all for something in the snow. I know the Stevens Pass area best. If one particular day doesn't work out for everyone, maybe we...

Baking with rocks
Tinny does it successfully, but I've never tried it. I use water and no rocks. Look at his website, minibulldesign.com, and search in the archives on his Adventures page for 17 May.

I had a similar experience to David's. They sent the inferior space blankets, rather than the correct order, took forever to send a return UPS shipping label, and only yesterday admitted to recei...

Boomer's Guide to Lightweight Backpacking by Carol Corbridge
I was very disappointed in this book. Luckily, I didn't buy it but had checked it out from the library. For starters, the book is in major need of copy editing. There are lots of awkward sent...

I'm not sure whether to review these in raingear or softshell clothing, because they're both. They are all-day pants, rather than rain pants to pull on over hiking pants and are made of a fab...
