    Quote from TrafficJam: “Quote from Drybones: “My old Moto phone is on it's last leg, about to fall apart into two halves, and it's so slow it's almost useless as a gps which is what I got it for. I could not bring myself to spend $700-$800 for something I don't normally carry so I did some research and ended up ordering an LG G5 phone for $265, the two things that swayed me on it was the camera, 16 MP and 8 MP wide angle in back and 8 MP in front, and the fact you can replace batteries...for hik…

    Quote from Dmax: “I know two people riding Ragbra this year. If unfamiliar with Ragbra, it's a ride across Iowa. I couldn't imagine trying to do it this time of year. So much heat and so many strong storms in the heartland. ” It sounds like an improvised undergarment.

  • I suspect everyone is different. I lost a dog when I was a minor. I told my neighbors, I cried, and then I was fine. I have carried other pain for most of my life, but it has nothing to do with death. If you blame yourself or someone else for your loss, it is much harder to move on. I hope that is not your case.

    Quote from Drybones: “Quote from TrafficJam: “Quote from TrafficJam: “I thinks it's dead . Held it in my hand for a while and it didn't move and it's dried and hard. ” I just realized how that sounds,,,it was definitely unintentional. Sorry if it upset anyone's sensibilities. ” Damn!!!...I've found a woman who's mind is deeper in the gutter than mine! ” TJ's bread is sponge-worthy.

    If there's a breeze and no rain, line up the ridge line with the wind to stay cooler. If the head end is higher than the foot end, point the head end into the wind so the wind makes the sides billow out.

    Quote from NoAngel: “Does anyone bikepack by just putting on their hiking backpack and riding their bike? I would like to do it but I don't want to buy a bunch of new gear. I'm used to having sweaty back with a pack on it. ” I do it by loosening the shoulder straps. You may want to carry less weight than you would hiking. A rear rack is a good place for the heaviest items, or hang a stuff sack in front of the handlebars. Any extra weight on your back will leave you butt hurt, unless you have a w…

    I was hoping you would get farther, but it sounds like we both have made it as far as Glenncliff. Thanks for the pictures and jogging my memory.

  • I've been sleeping in a OR Helium body bag plus two layers of nylon (jackets and pants). The weather is too warm for a sleeping bag, liner, blanket, or even a sheet. I shiver a little in early morning, but get up before the sun, sometimes at 4:30 AM. The bivy has a five-segment pole arch across the chest, which is nearly useless IMO, since it does not keep the bug net off my head. I wear a visor and a hood to minimize bites through the mesh. The Pertex shield worked well in heavy rain, but there…
