Both my husband and I have noticed this foot growth over the past few years - more like 3/4 of a size for him, and 1 for me. We have done quite a lot of hiking in this time. I'm 27 and he'...

Re: Cooking clothes in bear country – Needed?
I'll answer with a question. How human-food-habituated are the bears in Banff? Bears are smart animals, and bear culture varies widely place to place. For instance, where I hike in Alask...

Re: How Much Money Have You Spent On Gear
