Fishing / Hiking in the Cascades
Tough time of the year right now. There were fish rising at Dusty a month or so ago, but access is pretty rotten if you're not floating. Lots of brush on the banks. We were up the Middle For...

Washington backpack early June
Early June is one of the most frustrating times of the year out here. Weather is improving, but snowpack is still very high. You won't get anything much over 3000' - less in many places. ...

JetBoil Sol Hacks

Granite Gear Crown Large

GoLite Shangri-La 2/3, winter/alpine use?
Mine is the 3, although the original version - not the current generation. To be honest, I rarely use it in summer. I prefer to hang in a hammock. But for alpine use or places that won't hav...

GoLite Shangri-La 2/3, winter/alpine use?
Of all the shelters I've used over the last 20 years, this is the one I'd trust. By far. I've had in at least 3 storms that I'd count as "alpine scary". It did fine in all...

Re: Granite Gear Nimbus Meridan Users
Keep in mind that you can sort of falsely shorten (or lengthen) these straps by the holes you use to mount them. There are many combinations of holes (on both the straps and the frame) that you can...

Granite Gear Nimbus Meridan Users
Okay - measuring from the beginning of the padded part of the top, going down the top center of the shoulder strap and ending at the seam at the bottom of the lower end, I get 20" on a medium ...

They are definitely different lengths. I continue to use GG packs (and Nimbus in particular) specifically because they are the longest shoulder straps I've been able to find on ANY pack. I use ...

Re: My Paleo
@Doug - I eat really well. I'm lucky to have great food sources in the Northwest and a spouse that is a fantastic cook, but dang, Doug - your meals sound amazing! Care to share a couple recipes...

BPL Ultralight Fishing Rod Case 2"
I'd been looking for a light, tough fishing rod tube for a long time and was excited to find this option. Despite fantastic customer service with a special request and fast shipping, this rod tube qu...

I'll give the Lock-Laces that BPL sells a star for being incredibly comfortable during in-camp and flat trail duty, and another star for the quick and easy on-off they allow. But, they are not near...

Backpacking Light Ti Esbit stove
If Esbit is the fuel choice, this little stand is a fantastic option. Fits the GSI double boilers well and my Snowpeak bowl nicely. The real appeal is the ridiculously light weight. I can tos...
