    I've had a fairly dismal year on the sleeping pad front so I'm looking for recommendation for a pad for a side sleeper. I've had a Big Agnes Quad Core pad for a few years which was fine, not amazing,...

    There is about a mile gap between South end of FR 170 and North end of FR 700A but they look to orient and follow same contour nicely so that may well be connected. FR 700A definitely parallels...

    You are right. I've deleted my prior comment. While I do object to some of the statements and characterizations here, it is not productive to banter back and forth about them. Would be hypocritical...

    That's what I did for awhile and then I asked myself why I cared. Was I up there for the enjoyment and reward of the climb, the personal satisfaction of the effort, or a photo op? That last few...

    I wasn't implying they didn't enjoy being outside. I think they just enjoy a different aspect of it (for example, the physical challenge and accomplishment of a 6 hour Pemi Loop versus two hours...

    The past two Springs I've been doing a lot of trips to the Catskills and find it pretty common there too. They also apparently like their fires because you can find a well trampled camp site with a...
