    As an aside, you don't have to eat on the trail in the middle of your hike to avoid cooking in your campsite. The classics recommendation is to sketch out a rough equilateral triangle about 100 yards...

    The idea is that if you cook and eat in camp, the smells are likely to linger long past when you have eaten, so if you are sleeping there, you might get a late night visitor investigating the smell....

    Ah, didn't know you were looking for canister vs ursack differentials. Some people do prefer canisters over the ursack even if it is an option. (I am not one of them, love me some ursack action).

    Off the top of my head, I know of two places canisters are required: Rocky Mountain National Park, and the 4 pass loop trail near Aspen.

    I find the setup of the hornet 2p to be relatively quick and simple. You don't have to do the Velcro loops unless you need to ride out a windstorm. Most of the time they will not be needed. Just...

    I agree on limiting exposure, but I think it would be prudent to have an emergency option.

    Yikes, that could get pretty bad. I would say talk to your vet about possible sedative medications in case of thunderstorms. Otherwise you could end up with a dog sized hole in your tent... not to...

    I'm using the seeker as a dirty water container. I filter into 1L Gatorade bottles, I think the wide mouths make filling even easier.

    Sounds like it will be a great trip! My boyfriend and I are planning on camping in the winds this summer in July. I'm trying to talk him into a couple nights in the backcountry.

    I am betting you could wrap it up in any extra clothes/layers and bury it in your pack and it wouldn't freeze if the temp was around freezing. For a hard freeze, you could either take the filter out,...

    IMHO, the 0.6 l is just way too small. If they offered a 1L version that would be worth considering. Also, if you read the thread on the befree over on BPL, there have been a couple instances of...

    I used my befree filter with great success this weekend. There really isn't much of a need to set up a gravity filter. I could filter a full 2L hydrapak in a minute or so. I ended up using a couple...

    This probably won't make any difference to you, but it appears it is the storage sack, not the stuffsack that is outsourced.

    There is an evolite plus that has similar R value to the neoair xlite, as it has the same type of insulation in between the foam sections.
