Re: Ch...Chi...Chi...Chia

If you can't handle weird textures, the chia blob is not for you. Chia seeds in a smoothie are way easier to handle :)

Re: Vegetarian meals and trail snacks

Longtime veggie here :) For freeze dried meals, there's also a company called Enertia Meals that has a bunch of veg options. Making your own freezer bag meals or "hobo bags" for camping works well. For snacks... apples, nuts, dried fruit, peanut/almond/cashew butter, the hummus from cost plus that d...

Re: Do you munter?

Always with a rappel device. They give you better options for adding friction, plus I would think a munter wears out a rope more quickly. Sure a munter will get you down, but I think they are probably best to use as a backup if you drop your device and no one else in your group has an extra (which e...

Re: Life Straw

I use something similar to LifeStraw made by Aquamira. IT'S AWESOME! I wouldn't rely on it solely on a long trip or anything, but it is a great backup and I use it all the time to drink from streams/pools when filtering isn't convenient. It's so small and lightweight that it's pretty much a permanen...

Re: SPOT

Speaking from experience, numerous times -- SPOT absolutely does not work 100% of the time, especially in slot canyons and sometimes even wider canyons. They are awesome to have around, but can never be completely depended on.

Re: Paleo Diet/ Primal Lifestyle

Personally I wonder about Paleo advocating *too much* protein. I think it comes down to quality of protein, not quantity -- I.E. getting protein from leafy greens, grains and raw nuts instead of just meat. I've been a vegetarian for 12+ years and frequently get asked the whole "how do you get enough...

Re: South Canyon Route & Salt Trail Canyon

I'm doing Big/Salt as an overnighter in a few weekends... hoping the water is blue by then. Gonna be interesting packing in a ton of water since the water in both Big Canyon and the LCR are undrinkable. You probably don't need to worry about running into another group up there, I have heard of it ha...

Re: Lightweight Homemade First Aid Kit Ideas

I bought a small zip-up first aid kit from REI (probalby $10 or so), it already had the basics of bandages and first aid but I crammed it full of extras to customize it for the more "remote" adventures: Duoderm bandages (provides waterproof wound care) Small roll of duct tape (#1 used item in the en...

Assuming she's refering to Marty Karabin's foldout map, it's available to buy for about $5 at REI.

Yup, that's the one I was looking at. :)

Re: camelback bee attack

So sad to hear this, per the link on the Phx New Times story, the guy who fell was only 19.
On the Camelback climbing map, there is no Ice Box Canyon but there is a 5.9 route called IceBox.
