I've learned a lot from your trip reports - about both places and how gear and technique worked for you and Jim in different locals. One of the magical things about your trip reports in and aro...

Meant the 2P AMK Heatsheet (the only one I have)
By aluminized mylar space blanket, I meant the 2P AMK Heatsheet 3.2 oz - it's the only one I have. I've have one that's been unfolded and folded for years and still going strong. I&...

Tape for securing loops on aluminized mylar space blanket?
That's what I thought would work the best, and already have one. I'd like to secure a few light cord loops on the edges - which tape would be strongest?

Best aluminum flick-lock hiking poles? Al versus Carbon for shelter support & field repair

Re: Big Sky Mirage 2P - width of inner at 66 and 72 in. from head?
@Christopher, the Mirage 2P and Revolution 2P are nice tents. Only limiting factor would be that they are narrower at the foot end - perhaps too narrow for wide pads. What's the width of your M...
