To answer your question, yes, you need to take a wide-mouth water bottle with a capital "P" marked on the top.

So what's up, Idster--you looking for a date, or do you just want to buy some winter clothing? If it's the former, I know this gal named Laura...just watch your backside, and have her hike in front of you where you can see her. She's nicer than those gay whales that Travis hangs out with.

I was 5'6"-8" for a while. Does that help?

"I was 5'6"-8" for a while."

I am 5'-8" and have skied the Sierra High Route and camped on Mt. Washington in the winter in addition to other winter camping in the Sierras. Is there a question?

Yes, the question I posted in the subject line. That's the only question.

I'm 5'-8" -- and yes, you still have to be able to haul your 6'-0" team mate out of the crevasse...

Yes, you can wear fur-lined undies, but they do not have to match.

I would answer, but can only come up with creepy answers as to why this question would be asked in this way. :)
