Kenny - what are you saying? I'm not certain I understand your perspective here, it sounds like you're equating homosexuality with pedophilia. If this is true, you need to do a bit of research to understand what you're talking about. If not, then I apologize. It just came across as a very homophobic...

If it is illegal, the should station more rangers on the Bell Trail along the creek...tons of nekkid people everywhere. I was a bit surprised to come upon a young woman skinny dipping. I was a bit more surprised that I didn't notice that she had a male companion with her...seems as though I was dist...

Knives don't bother me on the trail...I think it's kinda funny to see guys with those big knives. I always wonder what the heck they'll do with a knife that big. Just seems like added weight to me.

I'll stick to my Leatherman.

Yesterdays EV Trib had an article about the scouts in which it revealed that troops in a few geographical locations (can't recall which) were adopting a non-discrimination policy.

Tempe8 - you're more than welcome to applaud the scouts for discrimination.

I chose not to.

My best friend is an Eagle Scout, and I've relied upon his outdoor knowledge for years... he is a wonderfully skillful "outdoorsman" and has taught me most of what I know. As a teacher I have certain skills/talents that lend themselves well to managing kids. We've both been trip leaders in college. ...

I grew up in Wisconsin. My parents took me hiking at Kettle Morraine (mostly the southern unit) from the time I could walk. As I got older I started mountain biking there almost every weekend. (I know this should probably be in the sacred places thread...) I love that place, a lot of good times wer...

Myself - I'll pay the fees because I have to, and I'll also pick up the odd piece of trash I find just to do my part. Not much - but there it is.

Back east we used to go mountain bike riding in this area called Kettle Morraine...very heavily used area, best in the midwest...well you needed a permit to ride the trails...$5 for the day...but it was an honor system thing, no ranger, just pay at the sign, put your permit in your pack, and off you...

People who carry, must be fully trained. End of discussion, that is their responsibility. . I agree. But I don't believe that everyone I see packing a gun is trained and responsible. I wish they were. I don't know a lot about guns and the "lifestyle", but I figure the guys I've seen at Pass mtn sho...

people that carry a gun "tarnishes the pristine outdoor feeling"? I don't believe that is what was said. But I'd say that I don't feel as comfortable on a trail when I've noticed another hiker with a holstered or held handgun. So, I guess the wilderness becomes less pristine for me in this regard...

Syd, I'm familiar with the system...had it been around when I purchased my Suunto Advisor, I would have considered it. Several AR athletes I know have similar reports on the timex system as you indicate.

Is it cumbersome?

I use the Ultimate Direction Epic pack, with its 1 gallon bladder. I like the Ultimate Direction bladders for the "fold and roll" closure.
