    Anytime you make a choice between two non-consumable items based on weight, you are intrinsically making a base weight decision. Identifying that category is more useful than ignoring it. Here's...

    Put it in a ziplock (or vacuum seal) and use your pot? A cozy on the pot might be helpful, but isn't completely necessary. You could use a hat or vest. I don't like to do that because I don't want...

    OK, it's not an issue of weighing stuff just the stated metric.

    Whether you use fully loaded (max weight) or base weight, you will know you pack is getting lighter everyday you eat. If you use...

    Not really a good idea to remove even if weathered. It could be part of monitoring or a research study. It's not always a good idea to get too close either. It could be marking a yellow jacket...

    Not sufficient? I guess a flip flop is not sufficient either? There's a shuttle smack-dab in the middle of that one. Continuity broken. Take a shuttle into town, forget to cross the road....

    So the trail has never had a closure before where a walkaround was impractical? Like a fire?

    People are taking umbrage because there's no "official walking reroute"? Do people feel that the ATC...

    You're an inch shorter than me. What's your body fat percentage? Personally I am at 165# but my scale is saying 15% body fat. This type of scale is not noted as very accurate for that sort of...

    I aim for flatter, wider spots in order to land more of my sole while also minimizing repeated up and down (height) changes, which can be energy wasteful. So I might stay on the rocks or drop...
