    If you want to disagree about Yvon Chouinard, that's your business. I think Patagonia works extremely hard to be a good, decent company, you apparently don't. You leveled an attack, I responded. ...

    If every time someone tries to post something positive on Views, they get trolled for it, pretty soon this forum will be dead. I hope the moderators consider that fact.

    I don't think the oil and gas industries are leading to global warming, I know they are. As do the folks at Patagonia. They work extremely hard to limit their carbon footprint, recycle, get people...

    It makes me love them even more! I admire his outspokenness, his ability to speak truth to power, his willingness to take a stance and be bold at a time when few others were willing to do so, even...

    I see a lot of small patches that look like they had a fire. But they aren't big. People more educated than I can probably speak to this better, but I suspect that a lightning strike starts the...

    Moat no longer taking reservations

    Moat Mtn Brewing Co is no longer taking reservations and is going back to first-come first-served. I'm a bit surprised they're doing that before the Labor Day crush, but they must have a good reason...

    Non-toxic bug spray

    My housemates made some bug spray, and it works extremely well while lacking all the nasty stuff, like awful chemicals that harm the environment and melt one's clothing. I can spray it straight onto...

    Outside magazine has a highly favorable review of Zoleo's new satelite communicator.
