    Thermarest Ridgerest Classic or Solar, in long (25x77). Never fails, don't have to blow it up. Is bulky, but not heavy.

    While I get your "ought" vs. "is" distinction inherent in your question, you add the opinion that "oughts" are "not relevant and of no help to the hiking community." I, and I expect many others,...

    Sure it will! Are you banned yet?
    Intelligent dissent is especially helpful. It may help us think more critically. But just saying it's a scare or over-hyped, etc., that's pretty lazy dissent. In...

    Maybe, maybe not. WV was the last state to know they had a case. There hasn't been much testing. Only 84 tests run in WV as of yesterday per Sen. Joe Manchin.

    I've seen Shug get his alcohol stoves going in startlingly cold weather too. I suspect one thing that really helps is not having the cold pot of water right on the stove as with the Super Cat (if I...

    It looked like they tried to design the 2P one to be held up with just one vertical pole, yet avoid being lopsided like the lunar solo. Somehow that pole holds up a horizontal roof-spreading piece...
