    I was thinking of replacing my fourteen year-old Denali Ascents. This thread confirmed my worst suspicions from the cursory shopping I'd done.

    I am reminded of the classic definition of life insurance: You're betting that you will die before the insurance company thinks you will. And you're hoping that you're wrong. ;)

    This one will keep you busy for a while, and at the end you'll have something very useful in the woods, as well as something to casually show off in front of your companions. :cool:

    I'm inclined to give the head of the Forest Service a pass on this one, given what this article has to say – YMMV. Hope the link works for you folks:

    When the lump from that baseball subsides, you might want to reconsider your post. You can take all the pictures of trees you want. You just can't enter a wilderness area for the primary purpose of...

    They do have a fondness for beavers – saw one trying its best a few years back. And a brown/grizzly will excavate a very large hole, flinging big rocks to the side, just to get hold hold of a single...
