    I went ahead and ordered a pair so I'll comment on that after I've tried. I wondered about that considering the lack of stretch.

    Nova Scotia In March

    Really off topic question, even for me, but the vast amount of travel experience on this forum is hard to ignore so I apologize in advance for the odd question. My wife and I are going to be taking...

    Quality Shoe Laces

    Are there any good after-market shoe lace manufacturers out there? What are some good "hacks" for keeping shoe laces from getting cut or worn, having the tab ends fray and become impossible to pass...

    No worries. As usual I probably ambiguously worded my question so no one was 100% sure what the hell I was talking about. :p

    Nobody mentioned a view. I was just curious if there were any views because I've been meaning to check out that spot for awhile. Every now and then I get enamored with the way an area looks on the...

    It must be pretty underwhelming for you not to have a photo of the area. :p It is the Scaur Peak just North of the Tri's. Both reports referenced coming up via Pine Bend Trail and taking the...

    Yes there were references in each report to "sign no canister" vs "canister no sign". Irrelevant for my purposes. Thanks.

    Views On Scaur Peak

    I noticed a few recent trip reports referencing Scaur Peak on the trip to/from North Tri. I haven't been out that way in awhile and I always enjoyed that narrow stretch of ridge with the glimpses out...

    Yah that is pretty much the hike everyone seems to do. Does sound like a good one. No worries on the memory. You've forgotten about more hikes you've done than I've read about. Understandable to...

    If there is I am certainly open to suggestions. I'm not specifically driving there for that particular hike. I do a job in Vanceburg, KY every MAR and this area is not too far off from the way I...

    The Priest and the high point on Three Ridges are both about 4,000 ft. At least going by the MapBuilder layer on CalTopo the Priest doesn't look "loopable" unless it was a very long, multi day affair...
  15. The Priest vs Chimney Rock And Three Ridges In Virginia

    I'm looking at trying to line up a hike for my annual OH/KY work trip in late March in case weather and circumstances allow. One area that caught my attention was in Virginia. In particular, there is...

    The threads on the model I had would fit on any "conventional" thread beverage bottle, so soda bottles of various sizes, Smart Water bottles, the Sawyer bags, etc would all work. I believe that is...

    Most through hikers use the Sawyer Squeeze for the weight factor. They screw it right onto a Smart Water bottle which is indeed a very light and idiot proof set up provided you don't need a lot of...

    I can unpack my Katahdin Hiker Pro and all its stuff, filter 2-3L of water and put it all away in 5-6 minutes at a comfortable pace. That is hardly much of a time penalty for safe drinking water....

    There was snow. We went Sunday. Watatic area was fairly well packed. Trail from there to Binney Pond was in the 4-6 inch depth, crusty and fairly unconsolidated like walking in chunky sand. Ridge...
