    I wear size 11.5 and DT Large fits good for me, though they do conform to my feat a bit more after using them. I think a nice fit like that is important where loose socks become a problem. I have...

    Seems much needed after the pics I saw recently. Only thing I can think not good from it is that it technically makes night hiking through that section prohibited, unless they specify thru hikers can...

    I figured those piled rocks were meant to be there for one reason or another, at the least put out for show by people who maintain the trails. I didn't realize it was a thing to just do this on your...

    You mean those little gnome sculptures? ... Honestly, that sounds to me like some junk to help pack out with all the other garbage I help clean while I'm out hiking (can't pack out too much extra on...

    Frogg Toggs all the way for me, sure I've had a few rips here and there but nothing a tiny piece of repair tape doesn't fix. I also get the extra large Frogg Toggs, and I'm a pretty skinny guy. All...

    I was going to say I'm not sure they'd want this kind of attention considering the more recent issues with backpackers not knowing/following rules with so much increased use recently... so the fact...

    It was good but it wasn't a good meal plan for the night as I recall. I think it was 3 or 4 servings (?) so I called it my main course for the night but in the end I wished I had split it into desert...
