Used climbing gear
I WOULD say don't buy a used rope. Just plain ol' don't. I've got too much Seattle Mountaineer training in me, maybe, but that is one item you need to buy new and replace every 5 ...

one terrific old recipe
Finally had a chance to make this. As I suspected, this stuff is wonderful. The lemon makes the taste really sparkle. I used medjool dates for the fruit, probably only 1.5 C honey, and used my d...

Jim - thanks for your explanation! I'll practice it a few times, and next time I see her, I'll try to recite it. I doubt it will change her mind, though. She can be really rabid about he...

debunking the no-layers myth
Here's a theory I heard a few weeks ago that might explain why you're cold at night, with or without clothing. A hiking friend told me she is convinced that as we hike during the day we pe...
