    When I hiked on Saturday, people were very close to me because there was no room to step off the trail, having slopes on both sides. I also used the facilities before and after my hike which was...

    When I started hiking, I was very slow. So very slow that someone told me I was creating a traffic jam on the trail. Thus, I was named Traffic Jam.

    Got called into work then sent home two hours later. :(. Walked 3.5 miles followed by 50 sit ups, 50 modified push ups, and some planks (I suck at all of it but do it anyway). Cleaned out some...

    Through trial and error, I found that pairing the Z lite sol with my Thermarest Prolite plus works the best for me. Using a “space blanket” did not make a significant difference for me.

    For long-term food preservation, lacto fementation is a better alternative to canning. It’s nearly fool proof as the lacto bacillus overwhelms harmful bacteria and the prep is incredibly quick and...

    OMG, this is crazy. I can’t believe this hasn’t sold. What is wrong with people? :confused:

    Exactly.

    And losing 60 ish lbs didn’t result in being able to carry much more weight either...maybe 3-5 more pounds. It just made it easier to climb up hills with a pack.
