Re: GPS/Communication Device Question

Bought the inReach for its sat com ability. Works great when bluetooth paired with cell phone. Much easier to send texts that way. GPS function is just basic way point to way point nav.

Re: Battery Pack Charger for Backpacking

I bought this one. Just over 10oz. Works great.

Re: Smartwater Bottles

My Playtpus 2.0 complete kit came in last week. I also picked up a Sawyer mini for my solo hikes. I was going to try something like https://goo.gl/nxWhef but think i will go with a smart water bottle (thanks rhjanes) instead of the peroxide one. Doubt i'll be dragging along the backflush syringe any...

Re: Quick Overnight---Niederhoffer Lake---20-21 Feb

This is cool. I'm working towards completing the East half by spring. TH#8 just happens to be my next starting point. Seriously contemplating joining the group on this one!

Will be my first "in the woods" overnight :-) Can't wait!
