About Me "When you can measure what you are speaking about, and express it in numbers, you know something about it; but when you cannot measure it, when you cannot express it in numbers, your knowledge is of a meagre and unsatisfactory kind; it may be the beginning of knowledge, but you have scarcely in your thoughts advanced to the state of science, whatever the matter may be."
Sir William Thomson (Lord Kelvin) 1883

Recreational Ultralight
Now there's a term I like: I immediately understand what it means. Note that Ron defines it without any reference to weights at all. It's all about taking only the gear YOU need/want to enj...

Re: not a bad start for voting
Sorry, but I disagree. UL backpacking is not hiking in "places and conditions where the weights in question are applicable." To me, UL is more of a philosophy which is applicable to all ...

The best baseplate compasses by far are made by Moscow Compass. Far superior to Silva or Suunto, you have to see one to believe how fast and stable they are. More that a beginer needs but you will ...
