Thanks for all the positive comments, guys. Randy, yeah, this is an area that you really want to slow down and savor. The water situation this year is lower than that of the other dozen or so t...

Re: REI staff knowledge

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

Craig, good news. The last EMS store in Colorado closed a few months ago so no more tax for you. It was two miles away from my home in Denver and I miss it but I'll admit that I took full advantage o...
