Great article. I called and left a message with my representative and my senator.

The backcountry hunting gear list breakdown - revisited for 2017 - posted 3 months ago

I am only 6' but I use a down jacket partnered with the Vireo to keep me warm. Have you tried the Patagonia 1/2 bag or spoken with someone who has? I'll check out the Western Mountaineering quilt when it's released. How are you liking the Lathrop & Sons boots? Mine are the finest boots I have worn.

Brady,

Great article. I would recommend the Feathered Friend Vireo UL as and lighter alternative to the your current bag. I have been super pleased with mine. The 68" bag is only 14.4 oz. Also do you find you are losing warmth by using the small profile of the Klymit Inertia? Do you use your pack to insulate your legs?

Is Nevada next for federal land swaps? - posted 1 year ago

@Randy thanks for posting the Randy Newburg links. You beat me to it. The rancher quoted is either lying or is ill-informed. Both are equally concerning. The states are mandated by their constitutions to sell public land to fund the school systems. Also the states do not have the budget to manage these lands adequately. All else about the president-elect aside, he has claimed that he is against the GOP land transfer platform. So if anything gets through both houses, he would hopefully veto it.
