Re: Perfect pack

Re: Water collection
Until just last week, I used to use cheap plastic water bottles (bottled water you buy in any supermarket). Getting water was easy. You squeeze the bottle, then you place it in the pool of water ...

Big Sky Ultra C Aluminum Tent Stakes
I've been using titanium shepherd hook stakes for years now -- loving their ultralight weight but disappointed with their suboptimal ground penetration and holding power. These stakes can be bent...

Titanium Goat Adjustable CF Trekking Poles
I received my pair and went on a moderate 2-hour hike today (approx. 2,000 ft. elevation gain over 2.7 miles -- then returning back down). I find the specs to be accurate, and the poles a beauty to...
