Re: How far is "too far" for an overnighter?

Re: Aquamira tablets? Thoughts?

Temple Canyon
A green metal gate blocks the way forward. The chain holding the gate closed has a padlock affixed to it. I’m not sure what this means. Standing there for a minute or two, I consider the poss...

I have the Jam (and Pinnacle)and Vapor Trail but not the Osprey. The Vapor Trail is closer in size to the Pinnacle than the Jam. Both the VT and Pinnacle can handle a winter down bag and fleece ja...

Re: Re: One Pound Tripod

Lighten Up! by Don Ladigin
