    But then there’s grandparenthood! which is a million times more fun than being a parent. :)

    Unfortunately, our cycling-unfriendly country has made it extremely hazardous to cycle on the roads so most of my friends have turned to MTB’ing. I’m still cycling on the road but expect to get hit...

    ...and another point,

    The studies I read during the MTB’s-on-trails-debate showed that hikers did more damage to trails than bikes. As a member of the cycling community, I know firsthand that...

    Just like running or walking, cycling speed is limited by the landscape. Thereís no way a E cyclist can maintain a fast, continuous speed on anything but a flat, well-graded trail. And even then,...

    Nice! Thank you so much...forwarding this to my daughter who just took my grand baby on her first hike. :)

    Lol, the assumptions about who uses E bikes is ridiculous. Riding an E bike does not mean the rider is “unfit” or has “less survival skills”.

    On a positive note, it may provide more access to the outdoors for people with disabilities. It’s not only the “unfit” using E bikes.

    Washing off the sweat helps me sleep better and protects my sleeping bag and pad.

    The best bath is when no one is around. I hang my jimmyjam water hauler from a limb, add a drop of soap, and get...

    Iím pretty slow and was able to hike that section in 3 nights.

    Personally, I find the Lakeshore Trail to be more strenuous than elevation profiles suggest. The profiles make that section look flat...

    Just a thought...I’ve read reports from many hikers that after a few weeks of hiking and not using skin products, their faces were better than they’d ever been. Some hikers experience an initial...

    Sounds good!

    I’ve run into more trouble (body temp regulation) after sweating in a too-warm bag than I have with not having a warm enough bag.

    Just something to keep in mind.

    If you’re looking for a bag that will work in shoulder season and summer, the 25* quilt sounds like a good option.

    Never had a bad meal on the trail. The problem is having high expectations for my post-hike meal. Recently had a disappointing meal at a Damascus restaurant (which will remain unnamed).
