Stuff I missed over the past two days while I was shopping for gear (yeah, my new year’s resolution lasted a solid three weeks.).
Treknologies points to chlorine-dioxide water-purification tablets from Katadyn, the filter company. Update: Jesse insists we check out his post on Keen shoes.
Andy Howell links to a Flickr group for gearheads. Yes, it’s people taking pictures of their stuff.
Hiker Deals recommends checking out GORP’s regional weekend guides.
WildeBeat has Part II of the snow-camping series.
GoBlog writes up a pretty cool avalanche beacon.
ConstantTrek has a wonderful tale of a bus ride to Marrakech.
Tom, Thanks for mentioning our water-purfication post.
However, I have something that you personally need to try out. Check my latest post on Keen shoes. You honestly, for the love of god, need to try out some Keens. I was converted after much kicking and screaming, and you need to try them as well.
Let me know if you’re able to test drive any of their shoes in the near future.
