just wanted to confirm this was sold… I'm interested otherwise.May 12, 2012 at 8:40 am #1876944
I'm interested in your jrb quilt if its still for sale. msg me or see my post on swap.Nov 10, 2011 at 2:12 pm #1800537
yeah I guess I can try out tightening down the loop. will be the easiest way for sure.Nov 9, 2011 at 7:56 pm #1800268
do you guys know of any that would be compatible with the toe loop strap on this style sandal? aka a tabi sock, or a sock that has the big toe separate from the rest for sandals and flip flops and the like. sorta japanese…
I came across lots of site selling regular socks like this, just not waterproof. otherwise the rocky gor tex or seal skins would be awesome.Nov 8, 2011 at 8:05 pm #1799923
are you still making these or did you sell out?Aug 15, 2011 at 1:54 pm #1769584
I'll just buy some cheapos when I get there. thanks everybody!Mar 18, 2011 at 8:17 am #1710680
I actually came across that link in my searches! but thanks!
I think I will avoid the 8 miles and take the tunnel instead.Mar 15, 2011 at 9:43 pm #1709552
the ranger said I could reserve over the phone or the internet, so reservation seems to be the way you have to go. they have a running list of where people are and when they are, as well as names. I think that helps with the rangers going on checks. pretty easy for them. I had him look up how many people were hiking now and he said only a couple sites were reserved. the most people on the trail were at ohiopyple shelter on saturday night. otherwise it should be pretty empty. I'm not expecting to see too many people. one reason I'm excited about it.Mar 15, 2011 at 7:40 pm #1709493
I'm planning on doing the whole thing.
Definitely planning on hanging food.
As per below, I'm just going to frontier pro/aquamira drop the water.
found on some website: UPDATE: Due to bacteria problems, many of the hand pumps at various shelters had been removed. However, as of 20 Dec 2010, several hand pumps have been restored. The water available from these hand pumps has been deemed NON potable. Therefore, you MUST filter or boil it before consumption.
Hand pumps have been restored at these shelters: Ohiopyle Shelter, Rt 653, Gringle Ridge, Turnpike Shelter, Rt 30 Parking Area, Rt 30 Shelter, Rt 271 Parking area, and Rt 271 Shelter.
Treated water sources are available at Rt 653 Parking area, the Park Office on Rt 653, and near mile marker 26 at Seven Springs.Mar 14, 2011 at 8:01 pm #1708996
I talked to a ranger today who said bears are not an issue, and that mice and possum are the worst thing. didn't mention anything serious in the course of the conversation.
and I know some of the faucets have been capped off because of bacteria or something, I guess I just assumed I would pick some up and filter and treat as I come across it. I know the streams should all be doing pretty good right now,and the trail is never far from small ponds and lakes and rivers, so I wasn't so worried about water. should I be?Mar 14, 2011 at 8:48 am #1708688
ok, I'll check on reservations.
and good to know on the bear issues.

hmm, good info and thoughts. thanksOct 11, 2010 at 5:58 pm #1653553
wait, I thought down bags were the ones you were not supposed to pack tight… so I shouldnt try and squeeze this synthetic bag as tight and small as I can get it? the thing is huge even compressed! hahaOct 5, 2010 at 11:17 pm #1651899
how would the clearview hold up to a xxl sized guy? is the plastic pretty tough?
the kookabay ones seem great, and I would love to support someone that is small like that but it will be above my price. Or otherwise I'd just have a to save for a bit. saving for a bit sounds like something I'll be doing anyway though so maybe I'll talk to kooka bay and see how bad it would be.
thanks for the info so far.Oct 5, 2010 at 9:59 pm #1651883
looks to be the big agnes clearview wide/long is the best price for width. found it for $90. still out of budget.Oct 4, 2010 at 9:55 am #1651277

looks good to me. how did this turn out? can you post pictures? I'm about to embark on something similar and want to mimic the same hexamid style you did.Aug 19, 2010 at 12:41 pm #1638742
