    You lost me there. I recall a potentially nasty crossing to the LEFT of the cog tracks (looking uphill to the ridge) on the Jewell Spur that climbs up and meets the actual Jewell Trail. It was...

    Cog Rail Trail

    With the clocks being set back soon this is normally the time of year that I do a lot of sunset hikes. Two of my favorites for this are Clay and Monroe and the general lawn areas in between. With the...

    I went ahead and ordered a pair of paddling gloves to try. They seem like they're what I'm looking for and in the product videos I watched it appears you have pretty good dexterity with them to...

    Sometimes when it is really cold I'll use nitrile gloves under a liner glove as a vapor barrier of sorts. Works pretty well. But just by itself I don't find it helpful because cold conducts right...

    I think we should cut Tom some slack seeing how he is heavily involved with "Views And Brews" and was probably in the middle of a research project when he made those comments.... :p

    I parked at Appalachia SAT and even at the "late" hour of 6:30 AM there was only 10 cars in the parking lot (granted the forecast was awful but still). Coming out of woods about 3:30PM or so there...

    I have to say I haven't seen a lot of trash either this Summer, and I've traveled a lot more of the "popular" trails than I normally do. Only real issue I saw was in the lot for the Caps Ridge Trail....

    Uh because it was fun. Route I took involved about 4 miles above tree line. As far as Gore Tex mitts, that is actually what I had and they were an epic fail. To be fair they were my Winter gloves and...

    I think these were the ones I had initially read about! Thanks for jolting my memory. I think the reason I didn't get was the need to seam seal and the ML product video listing one of the...

    I have had those OR Mitts on the radar for awhile now. The sticker price has been the only deterrent. Maybe I'll finally pull the trigger next time someone starts emailing % off coupons. :)

    Rain Gloves

    Yesterday I went up and did a cruise in the wind and driving rain on Adams and was reminded of something I've wanted to add to the gear list for quite awhile: some sort of rain gloves. I've tried...

    I did originally but don't now yet still have that issue. Based on sizing charts it would seem maybe my hands are disproportionally longer than they are wide. My knuckle circumference in most sizes...

    I've tried a couple of Black Diamond models and they do have a good fit but I blew the seams out on both pairs. Didn't leave me feeling very confident about their stuff.
