A very belated Thank you to all for your birthday wishes!

Chick-on, Basilbop and I have been having a lot of fun, and I’m getting back up into 8 mile days back to back. Some 10 Miles. Getting better. Not normal yet, but I’m out and having fun, and that is the important thing for me. I want to thank the guys for their tremendous support in helping me get out there! They have been hauling extra weight for me, and accommodating my needs in many ways. Best hiking buddies I could ever ask for!

Sorry, things have been very busy... Home for whirlwind 2 days to clean and resupply. Going back early tomorrow and will hopefully stay out til past Labor Day!

Will try to catch up with you all when back.

Hope you are all having a lovely summer!!

The latest model REI Quarter Dome 3 weighs 4 pounds 1 ounce, which isn’t bad really for that much space and protection. And conveniences...pockets, easy to mount the tablet for overhead video for “TV time”... and bug, wind, rain and snow protection..

Big Agnes Copper Spur HV UL 3 weighs 3 lb 7 ounces and costs a good bit more.. and with the amount of use these tents get from us... the REI works for us in terms of bang for the buck...

We have all done the bivy sack thing with lightweight tarps for years, but tents kept getting lighter and smarter. Finally it got to the point the positives outweighed the negatives.. been super happy and I spend 2-3 nights a week in the tent on average... it’s not a penalty box.

Sure, we have been nuts and done the big Half Dome 4 Plus (almost 8 pounds) on short “luxury” trips with 4 peeps... but it’s usually just the three of us... QD3 is a good buddy.

Here's the Half Dome 4+

It's super roomy for 4 normally sized "adults".
(seriously... 4 of us can have breakfast and dinner in the thing very very comfortably)


(this was from this year... July 21 ... smiling smiley )
Looks like someone got ridz of their packing peanuts on us... smiling smiley
Fur realz... this was big hail storm that busted The 168 and also the road to Lundy Canyon TH.
well... part of the storm...
Anyzoo... we picks up a piece of hail ... pop in mouth... and it tastes smokey...
this was when The Ferguson was currently going crazy... we kinda got lucky it rained
and hailed since it cleaned the air some...

Have fun

The latest model REI Quarter Dome 3 weighs 4 pounds 1 ounce

So about the same weight as a deluxe, large pizza at the Curry Half Dome Village pizza deck! Head roll
