    Wipes, I like the "Wet Ones" brand. Really the butt crack is the epicenter of all stink and filth. Armpits less so.

    Hey Rob!

    I actually have hiked a bit in the LCW and really liked it. Even on the summer weekends I visited we saw only a handful of other people. That's going to be my prime backpacking...

    Like others have said, you build up the tolerance and stamina for high mileage. My longest day was 17 miles, and prior to that anything more than 6-8 miles was unfathomable to me. There's a big...

    I just bought the Sea to Summit Aeros UL pillow. Used it a couple times--I love it. 2.5 oz. Totally worth it for a good night's sleep, IMO. Beats fiddling with your jacket trying to get it in the...

    I've had this problem as well. Set up tight, then awake the next morning to a saggy tent. I thought my pitch was just bad but the it's the fabric's properties.

    That is a FORTRESS of a tent!

    Inflammatory? It's an anonymous gear opinion on a backpacking forum. Get over it.

    There is a point when gear prices can become absurd. I don't care what it's made out of. If a tent cost $600+ it...

    Totally agree. Silnylon, despite being eclipsed by the trendy popularity of cuben, is still a great outdoor fabric. When it's really wet (high RH or constant precip), nothing will stay truly dry...

    Sure thing. I'll post a trip report here in the "Other Trails" forum.

    The data book is good, very detailed, but I much prefer a profile-style guide rather than just descriptions.
