How to Spend Money
Wow. What a question... For solo use, I assume? Cuben MLD DuoMid. A quiver of WM bags. I'd still probably just use a 1/4" full-length evazote pad with a torso-length Thermares...

Day 4

Day 3
The next day we hit the trail downstream towards the mouth of Lean-To Canyon. This part of Dark Canyon does see some traffic, usually from people who hike down from the Sundance Trailhead, and do ...

Mary Jane's Farm Sante Fe Pasta
I just got back from a Wind River Range traverse in which I tried a couple of Mary Jane's Farm meals for the first time- I had never heard of them- and I'm impressed. Fist, my caveat: I hav...

Sawyer In-Line Filter
I have a slightly different kit- the 0.1 micron 4-way filter. Of the filters available I give it a 5. It's not perfect, but IMHO it is the best that is available, hands down. The 4-way kit come...
