Re: Buyer beware: Wolf MTN Gear

Sounds like the Ratsack (AOG) guy's m.o. from a few years ago. (BTW - Ratsack is the product's name, my pre-apologies to any easily-offended rat-lovers)

Makes you wish that 'The Squirrel' was still in that business.....

Really wouldn't mind having lunch on top of Battleship Mountain or another peak like that with a great view.

If she brought pizza and a 6'er up THERE to ya she'd be a 'keeper' (sounds like she is already though).

Re: Which Cabin Loop trail?

@codyiscool I like the east loop. It's 18 miles if you just do the loop, or 20 if you start and end at Buck Springs Cabin. You can go in either direction, and you'll end up on the northern half of the Houston Brothers trail at about the halfway point in mileage, making it a nice place to spend the ...

Oh - so what you meant to gripe about was the, in your mind off-topic comment (gee.. there are hardly ever any of those on HAZ :) ). Your words were 'comments on race' not 'off-topic comment' - your lack of clarity c...
