Re: Re: What does "gentrification" mean?
Didya note the scare-quotes, there, Eric? :) I think that I equivocated adequately- "most" and "eventually", etc. Maybe I should have specified "regulars" or someth...

What does "gentrification" mean?
I'm not even sure what "gentrification" means, as the OP used it. Commercialism? Affluence? Elitism? Linen suits and mint juleps? Are people willing to spend money on what they...

Never tested
Willie- So, you're posting pictures of obsolete Ursacks that failed? Is that applicable? The posts you linked mention that it was almost certainly an older model from before they started usin...

the third pic?
So, where is the third picture from, oh 1000-word wonder? It's clear that NO ONE expects Ursacks to be an exact equivalent to a canister. No soft-sided container will be able to prevent cru...

Hey, Randy. Go back to Whiteblaze, okay? How old are you? "Douche?" Really? The abuse of the REI return policy is an old debate on all hiking forums. There definitely are immoral ...

Somewhere around 3000ci (50L) seems to be the sweet spot for a general-purpose 3-season pack on trips up to a week. Smaller than that I I start to have trouble cramming my food in. But I've...

wow. i agree with jerry.
Yes, there is a difference between having an attack of stupidity and irresponsibility as opposed to releasing things publicly, messily, and with a touch of malice. There just is. Differing senten...

Re: Anyone done the Wind River High Route recently?
We tried to do it late August 2014, but because of the FREAKISH unseasonal weather we bailed and did the CDT through the Winds instead. Of course only a few hours after we bailed out of Knapsack...

Yes, 8x8 will do you
An 8x8 will be fine for two people. The MLD SuperMid is, what?, more like 9x9 and it's a palace for three. Advice: sleep with heads and feet in a corner, not against a side.

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...

Very light, but lost points for a smaller battery capacity than competitors and for durability concerns. And, shouldn't we really have an Electronic category in Gear Reviews at this point? Put...

Ultimate Hiker's Gear Guide -Andrew Skurka book
Wow, how to rate this book? It is NOT meant for someone who is already an experienced UL hiker. There is nothing in this book that someone like that doesn't already know or can find out in fiv...

Klepper Double wood framed folding kayak
I own a Long Haul Mark 2, which is a copy of the Klepper Double. Though the fasteners vary very slightly the Klepper frame can use the Long Haul hull-skins and vice versa. The guy who builds the Lon...

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...
