Congrats, JR. I bet it'll be exciting to do that Yosemite trip with your daughter this summer! Remember to post a trip report on that one!

Great review on that ZPacks. Again, well done, and I look forward to reading more of your reviews.

Congratulations. Because of your review, I went out and bought a StickPic. I can't wait to try it on the trail.

Congrats, I have an Alite Monarch and love it, the Mayfly looks even better. Nice review of the StickPic, I considered one but realized the folks that look at pics from my trips find I detract from the scenery. Thanks for your reviews.

Thanks for sharing JR. I was hesitant about dragging my smartphone along in the wilderness but one of my favorite things is to enjoy a good ebook while settling down for the night in my hammock. As such, I can have hundreds of books at my fingertips for the weight of one book.
