Notch vs Lunar solo
How tall are you? At 5' 7" I find the Notch roomy enough - so much so that I get almost all my gear in the inner (my preference); occasionally leaving my shoes, and stove outside. As He...

Re: How Many Pairs of Socks Do You Carry?
Usually 2, one pair for tent - wear these on the day I am heading for a resupply/washing machine. I don't change mine but take my shoes and socks off as often as I can in the daytime. I'...

Grampon Bag
I use the soda-bottle trick with KTS or one of these with my more aggressive spikes:

Starlyte height

Colorado Trail Thru-Hike
I finished the CT a few weeks ago. A bit of Denver time was useful for me (to visit REI :-) and also get used to the altitude. I averaged about 17-18 miles a day 'easily' enough although...

Montrail Hardrock
I wore these this summer over the very rocky GR20 (Corsica) and the GR5 Alpine (Geneva towards Nice). The pair I used on the GR20 (120 miles) are well worn and cut up; they would probably do the ro...
