I'm in
As Tony mentioned, I'm in for 2. Taking my Dad, so we'll be taking our sweet time getting into camp. Looking forward to it. I haven't snow camped since 2006. Should be fun.

Mountain Laurel Design FS exodus
I have taken the FS Exodus on 2 trips this summer with very different circumstances. Both left me very happy with the FS. First, in July, I hiked 130 miles along the PCT in the Sierra. For this t...

I have to add my two cents about MLD's service. Early this summer I damaged the bottom of my Exodus pack. The damage was completely my fault (sliding down granite). I wrote Ron and asked if he ...

Sunday Afternoon Adventure hat
