My Locale The Sierras
About Me I usually plan 2- 3 weekend trips in the Sierras a year and try to do one 'long' hike a year. I really like the Central part of the Sierras.

Ruby Mountains
Just drive up Lamoille Canyon and look any direction and go! Yes, they did get some snow, but not enough yet to be a show-stopper, but also not enough where an ice axe will do you any good either. ...

Thanks the great idea Andrew! I will check if I need to supply the map paper or if they carry it.

FS Montrail Shoes
I too would like the model names or numbers, please. I loved my Montrail AT Pluses and they don't make them anymore. Trying to find a suitable replacement. Thanks!

Sleep comfort: Neoair Alternative?
Here's another vote for the Exped Synmat UL7. I've had mine for 3 hiking seasons, no leaks, great 3-season warmth and comfort. I too tried the Neo and returned it for the Synmat. Bonus scor...

2013 JMT List [changes from my '12 hike
As I'm not super familiar with wind shirts as far as how quickly they 'wet out' in constant down pouring rain, my 2 cents may not mean much, but last year on the JMT I got dumped on rep...

"JMT Next Summer"
+1 On the Atlas. Fits in your pocket just fine. I find a mosquito net lighter, less slimy, and more useful than repellant, just my 2 cents. Not sure about what you mean on 'rope', but you d...

Zimmerbuilt Half-Dome, modified
I have owned many packs with some features I liked and dis-liked on each one, so I decided to give the custom order pack method a shot. After a less than pleasant experience with Kooka bay, I went int...

MSR Mountain Safety Research HyperFlow microfilter
At first I just loved this filter, it had all of the qualities of a good filter; fast pumping, compact, and light. I used it in the Sierra's, in clear water, following the backflushing instruction...
