Re: REI staff knowledge

Re: Exped sleeping mat and zero moisture allowed in when pumping up

24: Craig Meadows

Re: How far is "too far" for an overnighter?
My rule of thumb is a maximum of one hour of driving each way for every day I'll be out. So that comes to two hours for an overnighter, three for a three-day trip and so on. Occasionally, I'...

Re: Aquamira tablets? Thoughts?

Lighten Up! by Don Ladigin
