Re: Re: Socks
TFD, That made me hungry. Good documentation. I also rely upon my wife for all things culinery. She did give a thumbs up to Mike's treats in his book when I showed them to her.

Re: Lightweight Alternative Rainwear: State of the Market Report - Part 1: Introducing and Defining Alternative Rainwear
Well done! Always a good topic for further study. Was interesting to reflect upon the pre-WPB era and how it did okay.

Therm-A-Rest Pro-Lite 4
More comfortable than the Pro Lite 3, but at a weighty cost. I give it an average compared to the alternatives.
