Re: Strategies for Seniors

To all those that intend to purchase a senior pass, do so prior to August of this season. Word is, as stated previously on these forums, the pass price is to be increased to $80.00. Although, still a great deal at the increased price; save the $70.00 for the ferry fare! :idea:

Re: Minong Water Sources

TylerS & huntertim214, Just a FYI. I use the fill bag, that came with the squeeze, for other purposes now. I, also, felt that it was too difficult to fill, especially out of a shallow stream/water source. I added the platypus water tank to the set-up, much easier to fill in most applications https:/...

Re: Late June itinerary feedback wanted

Welcome to the forum. First you might give an idea of you and your husbands hiking experience, ages, physical condition, etc. Trails between camps are fairly easy to follow, and vary in difficulties.

Re: After Action Review: Early May backpacking trip

Thanks for the great report; you are such a valuable contributor to the forum. Please continue your mature wisdom and insight as often as possible. This season I was considering using a bivy in the shelters; the thought was to avoid having to set up my tent in the shelters. From your post, it seems ...

Re: Travel Size Food, Spreads, Condiments

I'm going to try the Packit offerings
I know the MJ's goods are edible
I especially like the sweet corn and black bean chowder with beef/venison jerky added
Their lentil bisque reminds me of split pea n ham soup😍
Also, nicks couch potatoes are good

Re: Travel Size Food, Spreads, Condiments

Packit, I don't believe, has organic ingredients; and I don't see "bulk", available for their prepackaged meals? Whereas, MJ's has both available. :) Vegan and Vegetarian offerings are also available. I have never tried the Packit offerings, but, can attest to the favorable review of MJ's. I usually...

You helped kindle the fire in this camp. :)
