Hike with a friend and share! The problem is even worse when my wife comes along! Her stomach holds a bit less than mine, so I have to eat my whole bag and whatever she can't finish from hers. But there shouldn't be her's and yours. You just split one meal at 10 oz each. Or as you've mentioned, if ...

Yeah, I remember when batteries "went bad" and you would be lucky if it didn't destroy whatever item you had them in. Those were the days when we just threw 'em in the trash. Also the days when we had lead paint chips, asbestos everywhere , secondhand smoke, burned leaves out at the curb in front of...

Here's a point to ponder from someone that has never used e-bay. Where would e-bay be if everyone followed the advice not to use new sellers? I understand that the site has now been around long enough that one doesn't need to use a new seller, or that we could just leave that risky behavior to other...

Desertgirl makes good points. In addition to being prone to dehydration, babies also don't have a fully developed immune system and this activity might expose them to something they might prefer to encounter later in life. Also, many bites/stings that are an irritant or at worst a major pain to heal...

I generally find them to be a pain in the rear. I have borrowed one for water crossings and will admit it was useful for that. Think fast moving, knee deep water, with a heavy pack. Make a mis-step on a slippery rock and you're sure glad to have another point of support. Otherwise, I have not found ...

Great point Marc. Your post inspires me to look within for the simple things for which I can be thankful. I encourage everyone to consider this exercise.

Re: wine bladders

I dont disagree, MATT. I dont see a problem with being a wine snob. What I do want to know is what is a good vino for beef jerky and pasta.(or other typical camp food) I heard a winemaker once say that all the talk of matching wine to food is all B.S. and I should drink what tastes good. What do ya...

Tom, I checked into those metal containers and apparently wine causes them to corrode at a greatly accelerated rate. Besides if you fill the resevoir full enough it won't slosh anyway. As a sort of joke I hauled a 750ml Merlot to Tapeats Creek last month. Glass bottle, cork, and all. Sure it was he...

It was human caused. What I've heard is that thanks to satellite surveillance from big brother up above they got an overhead photo of 6 vehicles at the TH along with images of 2 older folks and 3 males in their 20's on the trail around the time of ignition. Okay. While I hope that the responsible p...

Hey, does anyone know if they decided if that fire was natural or human caused? I remember there was a lot of lightning in the area at the time, but there was also talk of possible human involvement early on before any thorough investigation could be done. Any final outcome?

I'm sorry, but I just don't get too worked up over these things. I see it as nature at work. In the long run that is how we get things like this:
