My Locale Kanto Plain, Japan
About Me The top of the mountain is more an afterthought than a destination for me. Its the trees and creatures, the weather and people along the way that make the walking good. It's why it's always so hard to come back down. And why, with the odor of days imprinted in synthetics, my coming back down is hard for others, too!

Re: Headline: "Why does America lose its head over 'terror' but ignore its daily gun deaths?"
Ho-hum, here we go again. It's always so predictable how these "discussions" go, both sides. Over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over and ...

Re: Hiking across Kodiak Island, Alaska
That was wonderful. Stuck here sick in Tokyo, it was wonderful to be able to vicariously get out there with this well-done video. Thanks!

I was just thinking about getting one of these after reading WIll Rietveld's M-SUL article. May I ask how long the rechargeable battery lasts? I'm worried that if I'm out there for seve...

Re: Unna and Nallo 2 in Wind
Well, I think it is a bit unfair to compare the two videos. The Nallo is badly pitched (not tight, with loose guylines) plus the fabric is wet, so it is naturally going to be more stretched. The Un...

Re: Unna
Doing the route without wheels and then also trying to stay vegan... that is asking a lot. Too much in my opinion. I did the GR10 last summer, with some jaunts up to the high ridges. It is hard ...
