    The smallest SAK does the trick for me, and I have the one with the nail clipper for longer hikes. I carry a handful of zip ties for repairs.

    I followed the same Vloggers as Wornoutboots. Not really surprising that the videos are repetitive - that's hiking! Get up, eat breakfast, poop, walk, eat, walk, drink, walk, eat some more, walk...

    Autumn! Drier trails, smaller crowds, less bugs, cooler days & nights, fall colors. The only downsides are the shorter days, dried up water supplies, and the occasional hurricane (which takes care...

    Don't see why not? You pour milk on your Cheerios... this way saves a step in the process. It's what I do when I want milk on my granola on trail, but I usually just eat it out of the bag dry.

    I think the freeze dried eggs are pretty good, esp. if they have something extra in them - like sausage. Never cared much for the powdered eggs or the cleanup they require. My usual breakfast now...

    I agree with Jigsaw - the "trampoline" style pack suspensions are great for comfort, lousy for packing. The ULA Catalyst has tons of usable space. The Gregory Zulu 65 is like the Osprey pack, but...

    To me, a bear can in the woods is like a good lock and lights at home - it makes the other guy's stuff easier to get than your stuff.

    Watch "supersize me" for the flip side. I suppose there are some that could hike 30 miles per day, day upon day, eating this crap, but I can't imagine it's good for you.

    And their "cure" is to go for a hike? If I did that, I'd find myself in a bad position, too.

    And that problem goes beyond the trail. Whatever the issue, some will respond with "It's a free country", implying anything goes.

    I think it's inevitable. I use a canister most of the time, or an Ursack in less-travelled parts. A canister increases my base weight by a bit more than a day's worth of food. Just saw that they...

    Which just goes to show how difficult shoes can be! I have a pair of Altra Timps, and my feet were sore after a hike, and I found them super slippery!

    Salomons are my go-to.
