    It is so warm right now that I'm carrying no wind jacket (and very minimal insulation as well) but when I do carry one it is the Montbell Dynamo, which of course is no longer made, although I'm...

    They're not out to 'get' anything larger than they can eat. Everything else is either defensive or a warning or territorial.

    This excludes the giant boas and anacondas which can, in fact, eat very...

    I've always found it very cool how you guys help each other break your own records. That is true brotherhood and sportsmanship.

    I have a couple of the older Mont-bell Dynamo wind parkas (with hood!) which remain my favorite. I bought two at the time, knowing of course they would discontinue them at some point.

    Put the ground cloth under your tent. Far more hidden puncture threats from outside than inside.

    Don't wear boots and be careful with hard/sharp objects inside the tent.

    I'll go with the odds and worry about it in proportion to the actual statistical threat it represents.

    Indeed, it's all too easy to get into serious trouble when 'real' weather moves in. And as you found, it can sneak up quickly!

    One really does breathe a heartfelt sigh of relief after a nasty...

    Very sorry to hear this. Once again, the severity of Mt Washington weather is underestimated.

    Just above freezing + wet is the most dangerous. Ill take 20F and dry any day.

    For older/smarter kids it might be fun to introduce them to GPS navigation, or at least finding out where they are on a map.
