I was recently in a "backpacking light" frenzy and bought a Titanium cookset. Wow, what a great purchase. Not only is the pot lightweight, but it rarely allows me to burn my pasta to the bottom of the pan - a common occurance. I'm sold on this. If you have the $$ - totally worth it!!

A friend and I caught a ride with a guy that seemed totally normal - but didn't want to let us out where we asked to be dropped off. In retrospect, he was probably drunk and harmless, but it was really scary at the time.

Have you considered a "add a profile map" option? I realize that they are only about 50-75% accurate, but I'd definitely take them into consideration before I hit the trail (and add a few in the process). Nice work, BirdShooter. Thanks for everything.

I read an article about this guy in Backpacker. Very tragic. I can see why this guy is motivated to hike.

I keep hearing about the Duncan Ridge Trail but wondered how well maintained it is? Did you end up hiking it and how did it go? Are there any nice campsites I should know about?

The wolf is by far the hardest to see in the wilderness. It gets my vote.

I agree, internal is the way to go. I never found an external frame pack that fit me right. Being female, the internals are much better designed to fit a woman's body - some specifically are made for women. I never found that to be true with externals.

Only a few days for me. I'm not as hard core as the rest of you boys.

And how about a hiking companion? Never travel alone ... there's no one to help if you get hurt.
