    Play it again, if you're luck, you'll get 2-3 easy questions and if you're careful about picking the location, you'll get thousands of points each. I'm the same on shelter names, I only remember a...

    Your wording makes it sound like the Tiger Wall is not a side entry tent, which of course it is. I basically see little difference between the inside space of the Tiger Wall vs. the Copper Spur. ...

    Not any more, McD finally stopped using them about a year and a half ago. thankfully they still had them in the spring of 2018 when I did the McDonald's Challenge at Cajon pass....

    For the record, the Tiger Wall UL2 with a dyneema stuff sack (zpacks) and all attached original cordage is exactly 35 oz, or 2lb, 3 oz. IIRC, my Copper spur is over 3 lbs, so probably about 1 lb...

    Maybe already said.... check out the BA Tiger Wall UL2. Significantly lighter than the Copper Spur, but has essentially the same room inside. I own both, an older copper Spur, which we loved, but...

    Yikes! I figured as much though.... the FIRST thing I did when I returned from my PCT "attempt" last week after only 7 days on the trail :-( is to instantly quit the PCT 2020 facebook group...

    Well, I was a rocket engineer (Titan, Atlas, Delta) for 35 years, and I blow a mean snot-rocket. And I used to hike quickly, not so much anymore.... I go by "Rocket". Not very imaginative.

    What on earth does this have to do with the flu, other than both are viral? Are we heartless because we have not discussed the, what, 50,000 deaths due to auto accidents every year in this...

    Just a quick editorial comment: The effect of COVID-19 on our hiking plans this year HAS to be the ultimate definition of a "first world, white people problem". BIG deal that we have to postpone...

    Yup, 3/12 was one of the coldest/wettest days of hiking imaginable (by me, at least) in Southern California!

    Here's the leap-frog method I'm referring to in detail...

    Say you have a trail, like the CO trail, and you break the trail into 8 segments of 4 days each. Segment 1 is the start, 8 the finish....

    Well, I did leave the trail a few days ago actually. My wife wanted me home PLUS, now in retrospect, it is the right thing to do in my opinion.

    The mood on the trail from 3/11 to 3/18 (the day I...

    I dind't explain the leap-frog method well, because actually, both hikers are together, though they don't have to actually hike together or even camp together, going the same direction, the only...

    Yeah, I do suppose one could reasonably still do a long hike if he/she had direct support. Still, he/she would probably want an occasional actual shower/hotel/hostel, and to do some laundry I would...

    Yeah, I pulled myself off the PCT after just 7 days and a little over 100 miles.... :-( Because of the need to use town facilities on long hikes, it's just not smart to stick with a thru hike,...

    I got a ride to the Campo t/h last week with Ashley Cushing, a super-cool and friendly PCT trail angel who resides on the PCT 2020 and PCT trail Angel facebook pages. Sorry, I don't have any other...

    yep, we bought the Exped Hyperlite Duo a few yeas ago, it was a fantastic improvement over having two separate pads. It has an R value of 3.3 and weighs 1lb 14 ounces, if I remember correctly. One...

    Aha! There you go, thanks for sharing that, I looked and couldn't find it. Good to know. There is really only 1 single place in GNP to get water anyway, specifically that MC creek, so really that...

    wow, really? In three trips there I never saw any signs about not collecting water in the backcountry. But you sure seem certain, so I don't doubt this. Still, I'd ask at MC ranger station to be...
