not all of us...
My wife-to-be and I mostly hike together. We have a very civilised arrangement. I carry the tent and she makes the choc chip and macadamia cookies (and the rest of the food) for the hike. I set ...

Cats are the greatest SUL hikers

re: New Tarptent ;this is the Moment !!!

re: New Tarptent ;this is the Moment !!!
Oh great just what I need - another option to choose from! :) I'd only just narrowed it down to the Contrail or the Lunar Solo and now this turns up. Seriously, this looks to have real pot...

Still not getting it
>I didn't say anything about trends, long term or short term. I said that sea temperatures have been on their way down since 2003 which is true whether it suits your view or not. Which part ...

Deliberate mis-statement of my point
>How else would we explain why global temperature has been level, then falling as Stuart pointed out, while human produced co2 emissions have risen 15% over the same period?? (Still unanswered)...

Western Mountaineering The Company
1. Discriminatory pricing. As an Australian resident, WM do not *allow* their online retailers to sell to me. (Is such a contract even legal?) The only Austalian based retailer inflates the prices b...

Inov8 RocLite 318 GTX
The Inov8 Roclite 318 GTX are my first lightweight bushwalking shoes. Until now I have used heavy solid leather boots so these shoes are a radical step for me. My boots weighed nearly 900 grams each...
