    Cascade Mountain Tech may be cheap, but they're well made poles that have been used by a lot of us. I have no concerns about their quality.

    12-18 inches? Good grief. We went from 5-8 predicted as of Monday down to a tiny, tiny bit of nothingness when it actually hit. Ugh!

    It was just curiosity - I've got a good dehydrator that I rarely use. If this were easy to dump on a tray and get something useful out of, I might give it a shot. I figured somebody might have gone...
