Opinion: Quick and General Guide

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

Nice suggestions, Mark. I agree with them all.

Joshua, if you check my signature line, you'll see a link to our own website, backpackthesierra.com

We have a list of cheap, quick, light and multi-use items that save time, money and weight. If you want to encourage people to hike, it's important to emphasize that you can get out into the woods and enjoy yourself without spending $2500 per person on gear. About ten years ago we were hiking with gear that cost a total of about $600 for the two of us. And we had some wonderful adventures.

Backpacking is NOT a sport restricted to those who have loads of disposable income.

Thanks for your input and critiques. They have made me think of a couple things I am pondering doing with the guide. I will need to re-read the section on gear and how it connects to my gear list. Seeing your comment related to my gear list as well as some others, I think I see where my error may reside. Since I included my gear as a step, maybe that is inferring this is a beginner gears set? I am thinking I will have to put my gear in an appendices or something similar. I can then create a beginners gear page. Maybe that will help the guide out a lot? Anyway, thanks again for your critiques as it is very much appreciated it :nod:. I have already revised my gear list to be more current as I realized some new items I have acquired are missing and old ones needing removed (i.e. campsuds). I think I will also explain why I currently use the gear I do almost like a mini review of the product. This may answer some of the questions you posed above. Thank you again :)

I will check out your link soon to get some ideas. If I use any, I will make sure to reference your site. If you would like me to do more, please PM we so we can discuss. Thanks so much for referring me there in advance :)
