Re: CCT in Indian Heaven?

I've taken the CCT from Rock Lake to Bear Lake about five years ago. The trail was never hard to follow but brushy in spots and and some places where water had washed through, leaving large steps. Unless something drastic has changed, it's probably quite navigable.

Re: sleeping pads

I have a hard time shelling out $150 for the ultralight matresses but Costco frequently stocks the Klymit Static V2 pad. 20x72x2.5 inches, 16oz and $60. Pretty durable and not a noisy pad to sleep on. Pretty much a summer pad though due to poor heat reflectivity.

Re: Excellent deal today on a Precip rain jacket

Yep, but it was the Precip that make me post the deal. I needed another light shell for ultra training in the rain so I bought a new Precip for that purpose.

Excellent deal on several Marmot products.

Re: disappointing lifespan for shoes

I just complained to Columbia about a pair of Bajada trail running shoes that I bought in 2015. I had been extremely careful to wear them only for PCT section hiking. My intention was to finish all of Oregon in one pair of shoes. However, after 12 days of wearing them and 250 miles (all spread acros...
