    Mens convertible trousers

    Vicrev, I've been looking at those too, and wonder: how well do the lower sections remove over boots? Or do you have to de-shoe first?

    Forum Rules

    I particularly like the elegant simplicity of these principles. I also have major reservations about something as drastic as one post per thread. I agree there is a point where too few people can dominate a thread, but two posts isn't that point. A frequency throttle might be interesting, eg...

    Thankyou and goodbye

    Even as a newbie I have already enjoyed Tia's posts and wisdom. I am sad that she and Terry feel the need to leave for the reasons they stated. I take it as an excellent reminder to me to be gentle to all the wonderful souls who contribute to this space. In case I forget to say it again for too...

    Late sunrises and leaving early...how does that work?

    Late sunrises and leaving early...how does that work?

    Late sunrises and leaving early...how does that work?

    Agreed about July. My point is that my preferred dates would be to start early May or early Sep when sunrise is significantly later, making the early morning craziness seem even crazier.

    Late sunrises and leaving early...how does that work?

    Hi folks, I'm gathering info and thinking about a 2014 Camino. A question for you all: I've read in many posts about walkers who like to rise at 5am and be on the road by 6am or sooner. I'm a bit anxious about this as (a) I generally hate being up that early, let alone active, and (b) from...

    Hi, not sure if you're the same person as Kiwinomad1 who posted those delightful photos on the Flickr group, but those photos are enchanting and beautiful, and if it is you...then thank you!

    Liner Socks

    TSA removed sport slick?!?!?! I suppose I shouldn't be surprised any more at anything they do, but that's just goofy and annoying.
