    It's a personal choice. I carry a smartphone, deep inside my pack, almost exclusively for the phone call at the end of the hike that says "I'm on the way home." I'm way past worrying about what...

    I always carry 1/2 (6-8 sections) of a z-rest in addition to whatever else I'm sleeping on. It provides protection for the inflatable, a quick lunchtime seat/nap pad, extra insulation, or a ground...

    Peanut butter is 5.9 calories per gram. Peanuts are a tad less dense at 5.8 calories per gram, but have several advantages: the packaging is lighter, the package shrinks as the product is eaten, and...

    I used to just strap a laundry basket to my old Kelty frame. The basket was half-cylindrical in shape. Worked well enough.

    Also agree with this, but physical condition can change on a dime. I'm in my sixties, very fit, but I doubt a thru is in my future anymore due to issues I didn't have in my late fifties. Plenty of...

    Agreed! Taking some time off will make those last few eyars of work more enjoyable if you're able to take a leave. The only guarantee is that you won't get any younger.

    If you're on a trail and you think it's too crowded, I do believe you're part of the crowd. I've used this opportunity to find new places to go. It's pretty easy to get out and see few, if any,...

    Warbonnetoutdoors.com is a great place to check out tarps. If you're getting just one, the Superfly offers the most coverage, but you can still fold back the doors in fair weather. I agree with...

    Which has never stopped us from re-hashing anything!

    I'm with the filtering crowd. You just don't know what died or crapped upstream. The weight penalty (and the wait penalty) are minimal.

    If you're able to get a pad with the old-style thermarest valve, you can make your own inflator (check it out on youtube). Much tougher to do with the flat valves. I'd like to see the manufacturers...
