  • I too, use a bandanna tucked under my baseball hat. I also like to get it wet when the sun is blazing. To modify, you could just sew velcro type strips to the hat and bandanna – it’d probably be more secure, but I have no problems without the velcro.

  • For those who choose to carry a soda bottle, 20 oz to 2 liter size, you might be interested in an item I reviewed called the Simple Shower. It might be an option for some. It is a device that connects onto the top of the bottle so you can shower anywhere and easily refill it. I have no connection to their company and receive no compensation other than being able to keep the item I...

  • I’ve found the same thing at the REI here in San Diego. Listening to staff provide their recommendations on gear to customers who clearly have no idea what they’re looking at, is revealing. No questions as to their experience, or their planned use for said equipment, and no discussions as to why say, one headlamp (insert item here) is better than another... The staff are...

  • I watched a documentary about this very thing and it is the relative size of the brain to body that repeatedly shows that the species with a larger brain is smarter. Crows are incredibly smart and can work through extremely complex mechanical puzzles while never having seen them prior and so forth. Dogs, in this case, would probably be smarter than bears, but I believe that since...

  • I think it’s important to remember that little phrase, “Hike your own hike”. What one person might think is irresponsible, can often be perfectly acceptable to another. You learn to use the tools you have access to and you gain experience and a level of comfort in what you are used to. Whether your pack contents exactly match another’s is not as important as the level of...

  • Hi Rebecca, Take a standard drinking straw and crimp one end and melt (with a lighter) it closed. Fill it with your desired amount of oil and crimp and melt the opposite end. As you use it, you cut one end and you can reseal as you go.

  • ”Well,... I don't much care for the idea of having to keep quiet about (legal) ways around rules. And I don't agree with the suggestion that we should all quietly “obey the authorities and blame ourselves for the new restrictions...” I was specifically commenting on the following excerpt... “A bit off topic perhaps, but does anyone have direct experience of being cited for...

  • There is a big difference in “Legally circumventing a law” which simply means doing whatever you want (key word here) legally... and intentionally weighing breaking a rule or law and looking for advice in how to do that. Especially in this forum which has a reputation for providing good advice that is legal, environmentally conscience, and keeping the safety of the hikers as a...
