    I have a 20 WM Alpinlite bag and a 40 EE quilt, and did the quilt inside. I stayed warm. My reason for the quilt inside is because I toss and turn a lot and wasn't sure I could get the quilt to...

    Winter for me represents a chance to decrease the miles and focus on camp more. Plus, I hate setting up camp in the dark even in summer. So shorter miles, ideally a fire, and a chance to relax.

    I don't hold to any right-of-way rules on the trail. Whether uphill or down, if I have a good pulloff I can get to before the other person, I'll step aside, or I expect them to if they have a good...

    I've experienced this myself. It seems the "oh you're just" mentality is inversely related to miles spent on the trail.

    Yeah, I almost always hike solo, and it's the one thing keeping me from booking that trip out West into grizzly territory. When I do, I'll have bear spray and a 10mm glock on me. They also sell...

    I just got my Arc Blast repaired after one of the tensioning straps ripped off the pack while setting the Arc. It's always been a bit of a PITA to set, so I just release when I get home.
