"Help Me Get Better @ Site Selection"
Drainage is not always obvious before it begins raining. For example, the trail itself can become a small creek which then overflows during heavy rains--perhaps right into your tent! Or a creek ups...

"Cabela's clones Big Agnes Seedhouse SL2 and SL3,
Oh I don' know...it takes me far longer to set a good pitch for a Hexamid, for example, than for a Fly Creek, even though the Hex uses fewer stakes. I spend perhaps three minutes tops driving i...

Cabela's clones Big Agnes Seedhouse SL2 and SL3,

"Help finding wide ski boots"
Rossignol bc x9--or 10 or 8-- perhaps. That's what I'm using (x9). Pretty wide. But mine are several years old and sometimes manufacturers change their lasts from year to year.
