    Quote from jimmyjam: “Just finished "Badlands" by Peter Bowen. Really enjoyed it, suspense, action and humor. Thanks TJ for the recommendation.

    Quote from max.patch: “rip roy clark. youtube.com/watch?v=kVTZMLAED34 youtube.com/watch?v=T6txoV_mGQg ” Growing up I used to listen to an album my dad had of Roy Clark doing a satire version of Folsom Prison Blues with the words all switched around. May have been the same album where he sang "Thank God and Greyhound she's gone".

    Never bought anything lower than 20*, and no expert at cold weather bags. But FWIW I have been happy with my Western Mountaineering HiLite. WM has quality gear, the only down side is the price, and unlike some other gear, you seldom see any on sale. Bottom line, gear to keep you warm in cold weather is usually a good investment, as it extends your hiking seasons and helps you enjoy it more.
