My Locale Western US
About Me Mostly 2 to 3 day loops, with a couple weeklong trips too, likely going 2 weeks or more with upcoming severance. Lightening up but with an eye towards toughness and hiking convenience (secure drying on the trail. quick set up, etc...), but also a bit better food (and beverage) for most overnights. Then again I might want to do a spartan "fast n'light" overnight ... and the gear closet grows.
I'll update my gear list tomorrow ...

Re: Re Cool

Re: How about this...
Aw heck, don't make any allowances for me. My weekends are Saturday and Monday's, so I may join for a day or so. Sounds like Andy will bounce from one CG to another, so there may be some...

Re: Windshirts for Those with Long Arms
XL is for width plus height. Why not pair it with 1 short sleeve layer and a light fleece vest taking up volume while allowing your arms to move more freely?

Re: Guadalupe Mountains NP - November
Work obligations screw up my Sundays for the next 5 wks. Might be able to do a portion of this trip with everyone depending on the dates. It's been too long since I have hiked the park itself ...

Re: Aldo Leopold Wilderness
Great little write up. The Mimbres drainage is well-known out here* but less write ups since the neighboring Gila and (up north) the Pecos are bigger draws (add that the deep Aldo Leopold is often...

Great trip and fantastic photos/report. Makes me want to go seek out a little snow if not for work. Thanks for sharing.

Re: The (almost) Ultimate Arches Loop
Nice pics but sounds pretty dicey on the water. Maybe in the spring when snowmelt is a doable option in southeastern UT?

Re: Investing in military clothing system?
The waffle fleece is just like the civilian waffle fleece too, just in "subdued" colors (no flaming fuchsia or turquoise blue for an 80's retro trip). Add: I wouldn't mind look...
