    I've used reflectix under my air pad for a bit of additional insulation, and as protection for the pad. Used in on the ground and in the hammock. It definitely adds some r-value to the set up,...

    I highly recommend a 1 or 2 night first trip, with a heavy lean to 1. Your kids will enjoy it and your wife will forgive you.

    Are you planning this as a solo trip? If going with others, are they all planning the same diet tactic? Are they aware of your plan?

    I couldn't stay awake on the couch at 720 calories per day - that's only 2 or 3 pints of decent beer. You've done the math in the lab, let us know how it translates to the field.

    As long as you don't try to blow it up in 10 seconds (i.e. put outrageous pressure on it), the cap is snug enough to stay on the Thermarest or Nemo valve.

    I just switched to a liner, and I still use a pack cover. The liner is a Hefty white 18 gallon trash compactor bag. Comes 5 to a box, so I used another to make a pack cover. Took a 4 day hike with...

    If you can't find one, here's a link to a home-made version that I use. If your son is still young, a great father-son project!

    Yep - the switch has been flipped.

    I killed a few hundred black flies in VT this weekend, but plenty got through. For some reason, the bites aren't itching - but I'm not complaining. Snow in...

    I tried frameless at a 12 pound base weight. Once you add food & water and those things that you forgot to put on the list but somehow wind up in those outside pockets, it's pretty easy to wind up...

    How much time have you spent hiking in the rain? If you haven't dialed in a rain solution, you have plenty of time to experiment before you go. You might be more likely to encounter drought than a...

    I agree, and usually use a Frogg Togg, but this spring I was heading out on a hike that I knew would be cold & wet, so I bought an EMS Thunderhead rain jacket - on sale, roughly $50, 10 ounces, and...

    I think you can be comfortable just following the Sawyer directions. I've been using it for a couple years now, and the ticks just fall right off - they don't like it at all. I've even picked a...

    I've heard the term "microagressions" adopted in this regard - people get offended by the littlest things that don't go their way or think their way. We used to just call it "thin-skinned" but that...

    He may be well equipped and experienced, but he's not very considerate. Hiking in Northern New England before Memorial day (or even later this year) can be very damaging to the trail, hence strongly...

    First in to say "nothing", or nothing more than you would have walking down the street. Yes, someone was just killed by a machete-wielding wacko, but it's such a rarity. You're much more likely to...

    ^^^ pretty much how I roll, too. Not much to clean in the pot - I eat it all. Use bulk products when I can so even the baggie use is minimized.
