    Older close to bald guy here, too. Get yourself a Tilley hat. Beats having melanoma. Been there, done that, now I wear a Tilley hat.

    If you're on a trail and you think it's too crowded, I do believe you're part of the crowd. I've used this opportunity to find new places to go. It's pretty easy to get out and see few, if any,...

    Warbonnetoutdoors.com is a great place to check out tarps. If you're getting just one, the Superfly offers the most coverage, but you can still fold back the doors in fair weather. I agree with...

    I did the ADK 46 over a 20 year span, and started the NH 48 a few years ago, I'm up to 14. So far, all of those were on day hikes, which meant getting up at 3 am sometimes, and getting home late at...

    Which has never stopped us from re-hashing anything!

    I'm with the filtering crowd. You just don't know what died or crapped upstream. The weight penalty (and the wait penalty) are minimal.

    I consider myself very fortunate to be working my butt off! My commute has been shortened to a dozen steps down to the basement, but no letup in the volume.

    If you're able to get a pad with the old-style thermarest valve, you can make your own inflator (check it out on youtube). Much tougher to do with the flat valves. I'd like to see the manufacturers...

    I always use CCF under my inflatable (the one time I didn't was the last time!). Any foam will do, including the CCF mentioned by others already. I use a 6-8 section piece of z-rest, it's handy to...

    If you've ever dealt with plantar fascia issues, you appreciate a good insole with arch support. I use a variety of brands depending on fit, but superfeet are #1. Expensive, but durable.

    I had a cataract in one eye... the dead one. Kinda gross in retrospect!

    I use canes instead of trekking poles, so I have the feeling someone will rename me one day. Caaaannnnne!

    That would be great! The Pinhoti is on my list, but the road walking part is not. Personally, I view road walks as connectors, not trails, and am content to hitch a ride. If they're able to move it...
