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

Re: One Gram Pot Knob
You can make a decent knob from a screw and a bent piece of wire, and even better if you can scavenge the knob from a broken canister stove.

Thunder and Lightning in Ordessa NP, Spain Part 2
Day 3. We were woken at 3am by the sound of crashing thunder. It grew louder and louder, echoing on the cliffs as the tent was lit up green by flashes of lightning. Then the rain started. Heavy pl...

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 ...
