    MSR Fuel Pump Problem

    Howdy all, I was out this weekend on a ski/ice trip, and encountered a problem with the fuel pump on my new xgk ex. After boiling a few pots of water, we shut it off, then tried to turn it back on to cook dinner. The pump pressurized the bottle fine, but when turning the simmer valve, it...

    Help!!! (I need ideas!)

    Howdy all, My bud Danny is getting hitched in Ripton, VT late this may. As best man, it is for me to plan a killer bachelor party. We're looking for some quality time in the woods somewhere in VT/NH. While we're both pretty into backcountry, some of the other folks are not. I was wondering...

    Repairing Gaiters After Crampon Run-In?

    I'll second that solution, the goretex I've found isn't really worth it, even on the uppers, you can always uncinch the tops to cool down if conditions are ok. Cordura is cheap, and easy to sew up @ home. I know a guy who has sewn 2" seatbelt webbing over the insteps, but that always seemed a...

    Picture Sharing Site Help, (please).

    bang for the buck if its best bang for your buck that you're looking for, I'd highly recomend, its 25$ for a 1-year subscription, which gives you a 2gig/month upload limit. I've used a few others, but this has been the best by far, with a good user interface, awesome & interesting...

    Hello from a newbie here, also a question

    about 1 out of every 10 people pack heat up here, but there's fairly good reason for it: encrouching subdivisions and open landfills = irritable, hungry bears......

    "Uh-oh" Moments

    this winter, b/c outside of mt. rose in reno, whiteout conditions in an unfamiliar area. I'd seen the area once before, but made an overcorrection on the return trip after being unable to find the turns. Went out for an hour, then three hours later finally found the road. I kept telling...

    Ultra-light tarp tents.

    I've got a golite hex with all the fixins and love it. its been on the glaciers up here to the beaches in costa rica and performs well in all conditions (with the exception of extremely high winds mixed with precip, it gets blown up into the vents). For winter camping, the small size and light...

    Looking for Koflach Degre owners!

    I've used both the degrees and arctis. found the arctis are much better for walking if you relax the laces a tiny bit, but took some fine tuning. both boots are excellent for ice, but again, the arctis excelled on the approach. they are extremely warm as well (designed for -40F climbing in...

    Foggy glasses

    The only solution that I have found is to wear a good (usually more expensive) balaclava. something like the OR gorilla mask works great, as its got large openings for the nostrils and mouth, but you still have to be moving away from exhaled air in order to get your glasses away from the warm...
