Happy Friday the 13th! As some wags noticed, might this be…A Nightmare Before Christmas?
- A 1975 interview with Benton KacKaye is an excellent piece of trail history to watch.
- A member of the Dine’ (Navajo) nation is a chief administrator for the Bears Ears National Monument and what the Dine’ considers part of their ancestral lands.
- I’ve long favored polycotton blend shirts for my backpacking: they breathe well, they dry quick enough, and they are comfortable. Here’s some actual lab tests to validate my ham-fisted rule of thumb findings.
But I have to say I’m with Paul on this one: for a measly $20 you can get a good-looking hiking shirt that’s lighter, more breathable, and dries faster (or just as fast) as the Kuhl or Montbell at a quarter of the price. Oh, and it won’t kill you.
- The idea of preserving the night sky, as part of an environment to protect, is gaining traction in recent years. And that’s a good thing esp as new technology in the wings, and our growth in formerly dark areas can impact this part of the wild experience.
- Will wolves be coming back to Colorado? If a 2020 ballot initiative succeeds, maybe.
- And here’s some satire about Black Friday. 🙂
