My Locale Western Washington
About Me I started backpacking again in 2008, after a long hiatus---I haven't been since I was a kid. Loving learning about a different way to hike---backpacking was no fun when I was a teen-ager, stuff was too heavy! Completed my dream of hiking the Wonderland Trail in 2010, now onto more hikes in the Cascades and Olympics.

packaging wet ingredients on the trail
How do folks carry wet ingredients for addition to food on the trail? Sure, it's easy to find packets of olive oil, salsa, soy sauce, etc, but how about fish sauce? Curry paste? Vegan mayonna...

good one!
Thanks for the link, David! I sent it to my former boss, who is a veterinarian and a pilot. I'm guessing that "check for cat" is not on the pre-flight checklist!

Good idea
Nylon dyes well with the same sort of dyes that dye wool. Jacquard Acid Dye will work well. Don't bother with Rit unless it is something you don't mind being temporary. Prochemicalanddye...

not sure
I haven't tried it, but I think it would defeat the purpose of the trampoline back, and would have your water pressed up against you, possibly uncomfortably. I have to pack mine carefully when...

You're right!
Geez, Doug, you didn't have to sit up on that hill with the scope, you could have come down and joined us, there was plenty of food and beer! I don't wear the leopard tights in the summe...

Really enjoyed it
Being able to geek out was fantastic--y'all are dangerous to my wallet! Picked up good tips, and you have inspired Bill to be more ultralight, too--but he's not giving up his tent;-) Defi...

pine needle whisk
Of course, Ian, I should have thought of it myself. 'Course, so much of the time I'm hiking in hemlock and spruce country, not pine, but still! Montbell--figures they would have an answ...

drinking matcha tea on the trail
For those of you who drink matcha, how are you preparing it? I understand it needs whisking, or do you just drink it grainy? When I e-mailed Rishi Tea, she suggested their On-the-go Matcha stic...

Re: re: starbucks
Yep, cats in the pants. Not at all comfortable, needs to be treated. My quirky sense of humor-that's humour to the UK folks.

Montbell Outpace Parka
The Outpace Parka is a decent jacket, but it has some design details that could be better. It sheds rain really well. It is pretty light and packable. Its breathability seems to be fairly good, alth...
