First, the multi-sport revolution continues: http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=10172454&server=vimeo.com&show_title=1&show_byline=1&show_portrait=1&color=ffffff&fullscreen=1 Hope them suits have integrated socks! Brrrrrr. Next, I’m trying to get a handle on this May backpack thing. Who wants to go hiking?! Last, avalanche conditions continue to be problematic in Western Montana. Missoula Avalanche sent out a report today, telling the story of a snowmobiler who died […]
I’ve been thinking about the Yellowstone project (my visiting the park a least once a month all year, starting last June/July) a lot, in the wake of my failure to go on my ski/snowshoe across the Bob this past weekend. All day Friday, even after the food was bought and pack was packed, I was […]

For a ski trip across the Bob. List here. I ran across this picture on the net a while ago. It’s neat. Go here for the full size version.
Enough political and cultural criticism (for the moment), and back to the regular programing. The race pack has been working very well; the design is sound. Key to function was figuring out how to tame the dromedary. A bit of cord runs through webbing tabs near the bottom of the pack and around the cap, […]
