    I don't worry too much about what my ancestors ate - they didn't live very long. But they were hunter-gatherers; they ate what they could. Meat and fish when they could kill it, fruits, nuts etc....

    The durability is their claim, so take it with a grain of salt, but I do like the idea of the built-in pillow, and the price is right. I tend to baby my mattresses, so it might be worth a try at $60...

    No to either question, but I won't trust either one alone, which is why I use both. A trash compactor bag to line the pack, and another bag to make a home-made pack cover that 1) won't wet out 2) is...

    Asking to satisfy curiosity, not to be argumentative: why would it be a wanted feature?

    How about that... they did! Post it notes are real, and so is transparent aluminum. Makes you wonder which came first - the movie or the idea.
  6. Maybe not, but if you try, you might invent...

    Maybe not, but if you try, you might invent something else useful like Post-it notes. Remember the guys in Star Trek will invent transparent Aluminum in the future!

    All kidding aside, engineers and scientists come up with some amazing discoveries when trying to solve "problems" like this.

    I'll be sure to take pictures, and maybe a video! With my luck, it will never rain on my hikes again, so I'll never be able to test this out. Already hasn't rained here in a month.

    Been there, done that, still carry one! Not a perfect solution, but a valuable part of the kit.

    That's what I use now when too warm for anything else. Even then, that skirt can get pretty toasty.

    Looks great with heels, though.:eek:

    At $20 a pop, I'm going to follow you down that road. I've carried an umbrella for years. I'm going to try cutting the front off the poncho, and wear it more like a cape. The cape will keep the...

    Exactly how I see it. Trouble is, rain gear is like stoves - I keep experimenting, but 20 bucks a pop for frogg toggs is hard to beat.

    One of the many unappreciated privileges of rural living!

    Yes, it was a between-roads section.

    That might be the #1 issue some have with the umbrella. I'm a one-stick or no-stick person.

    I've been following some hikers on YouTube (because I still have a job and can't hike my own hike yet). Some have elected to hike through the closed area, result - apparently there are now LEOs...

    When the bridge - any bridge - is out, you can drive around it. Doesn't mean the bridge wasn't in the right place, or that the detour is a cost-effective permanent solution.

    I don't leave home without it. It doesn't work perfectly in all conditions, but neither does anything else. When I'm using it on the trail, I invariably get envious comments.

    I've used one, and still use it sometimes. I really can't say it's better or worse than any other method, they all have minor cons, and the con for the Steripen is reliance on electricity.

    Agreed. I use the shorty Prolite (12 oz), with 6-8 sections of z-rest for extra warmth, protection, sit/nap pad, emergency use, etc. CCF alone is for teenagers only!

    It's one of those things that has the potential added downside of the establishment choosing to no longer accept hikers as guests.

    A box of Oreos will cure your desire for fire.
