Re: Lightweight Rain Pants
You may want to check out the ULA Rain Wrap when it becomes available. I know I will be. Its basically a long silnylon skirt, so it will breathe better than pants and be easy to pull on and off. It...

Re: TrailDesigns out of business!?
I'm fairly certain that Anti-Gravity Gear sells the Caldera Cones. They've also started producing a couple of the tarps of Brawny's design (formerly sold on Trailquest.net). Adam

Re: What hydration system do you use?
I use a hydration bladder on day hikes since I use my Camelbak pack. However on longer trips I just use 1 liter soda bottles. Its a lot easier to keep track of how much water you have left and are ...

Re: No response?

My roommate 'flatulates' in his sleep, though its not nearly as rank as when he does it on purpose. I'm sure that's not very appropriate but I find it a little humorous. He also yel...
