  1. I know the silvretta/mountaineering boot skiing question gets asked from time to time. I know from personal experience that fixed heel skiing in mountaineering boots is horrifying. Mountaineering boots are soft enough than if your weight moves backwards, your ankles bend backwards and down you go. Its a workable concept for touring gentle terrain and I would argue still better than postholing or snow-shoeing. I was curious if anyone has experimented with making binding similar to Telemark or 3pin cable bindings for mountaineering boots? I'm imagining a wire bail similar to the silvrettas grafted in the place of the telemark toe. The benefits I'm imagining are the efficiency and touring capabilities of a 3pin or tele set up and I'm inclined to think that I could ski steeper slopes free heeled than fixed heeled with Mountaineering boots. Thoughts? Comments?
  2. Hi all, I wrote up some ideas for the best gear for Alaska's environment and climate and wanted to share it with you. The laying system may be of greatest interest. https://maxneale.blogspot.com/2018/11/ultimate-alaska-backpacking-gear-list-part-one-clothing.html Cheers, Max
  3. Have been tossing around an idea for a new ultralight cooking product geared towards climbing/mountaineering/ultralight backpacking. I would appreciate if some of you guys could take a little survey I made relating to the product! I will probably use the information a quick practice pitch to my entrepreneurship class (am a college student). If people take the survey or express interest and I do end up following through with my idea, I'll probably offer it on here dirt cheap first! Link to survey is below. surveymonkey.com/r/Z8Z3R2M
