A friend called to let me know about he following:Tuesday, April 2, 7pmDavid BreashearsKilimanjaro: Journey to the Roof of AfricaTalk, Slide Show & Book SigningUW Campus: Kane Hall, Room 120Climbing Kilimanjaro has been likened to a journey from the equator to the poles, with climactic changes from tropical forest to frozen desert.

  3. I couldn't go last night. Anyone have a summary? cheers,scott
  4. Pyramid tents?

    I've got an older Megamid that I got for about $129 at campmor.com last fall. We camped up at Dead Horse Creek (above Paradise) at Rainier a few weeks back. There were three of us plus gear. Condensation became a serious issue in the middle of the night. It became a dripping lodge. Another issue is the person in the middle was fairly cramped against the center pole almost to the point of not being able to sleep comfortably. I would concur with the others that you really have to stake that baby down in high winds. I got it because it weighs about 3lb 8oz and it sets up pretty quickly. Cheers,scott
