    when all of your hard training pays off

    95 miles Our goal was under 72 hours and I think if we really wanted to do it, we could have- we hit Glenn Ck on the N Fork of the Sun River at 8:30 PM on Monday (Saturday morning start) and still had 14 miles to go to the finish. We were pretty spent and decided to enjoy an hour of daylight...

    when all of your hard training pays off

    Danke Gents! The organizer (Dave C of Bedrock and Paradox blog fame and a contributing writer here :)) participated in a couple of Alaska Wilderness Classic events and thought it would be neat to bring something similar to the lower 48, but not be as highly organized and nothing that could pin...

    Closest puffy to the Grumman?

    Black Diamond has enjoyed some success with their down/syn blend jackets; have never tried one personally- sounds good on paper though

    Closest puffy to the Grumman?

    when comparing down jackets, pay particular attention to fill weight (and fill quality) the Grumman does a pretty damn good job in packing 5.5 oz of down in a 11-ish oz jacket

    Best Elk Hunting Backpack

    hard to vote for the best when you haven't tried all of them; I own a Stone Glacier and have been very happy with the bag layout, comfort carrying and durability- fairly light for what it's designed for (carrying 100+ lbs)

    Whats the deal with gaiters?

    for deep snow, very wet- tough to beat the Kuiu Yukons- very waterproof, easy on/off, pretty quiet and thus far seem to be very durable for shorter gaiters I've had good luck with Sitka's Ascent gaiters (on year four with them w/ a ton of miles)
