That's probably what most Bronze-Age people said in Greece, Mesopotamia, and Egypt about 4000 years ago, right before the ~200 year drought that helped destroy their civilizations.

Own it, work it, squeeze out every last drop of profit, and leave a burnt out wasteland for future generations to figure out. And don't you dare question the right of another man to make a d...

Dirty Girl Gaiters
These are great "dry" gaiters. As a trail runner I shopped and shopped for a good, breathable, and lightweight pair...not much out there. Most mainstream gear makers seem to seriously over...
