Bad storms came rolling in , 12 Hours none stop. Some of the most intense rain I have ever seen. I weather radio would have helped for sure . The...

Re: Packing your pack, suggestions?

I agree with fonixmunkee post but there are more reasons not to put anything on the outside of your pack. I have found lots of items on the trail, lost from the outside of a packs thay include . Tents,traps, sleeping bags,sleeping pads etc. Losing one of these items can make for a bad trip. I have a...

Re: Sleeping gear in late August

I agree with KEWEENAW.
Go with a warmer bag and just unzip if needed.
I spent a week on IR in the 70"s with one of those new Space Age Blankets.
A big mistake froze the whole trip.
Current bag is a REI Sub Kilo.
