comment How to stay clean on a multi-day hike?
I love the question, but I can't help - I revel in the freedom of being filthy while I hike... of course, I hike alone most of the time, so there's no one to annoy with my stank :)

@Peter - yep, $25/year is pretty premium :) IMHO well worth it.

Nice stuff! I have a friend who is a geologist and spends most of his time out in the field collecting samples... that would fit too!

Can you be more specific about what kind of pakraft you have? The only ones I'm familiar with are made by Alpacka...

@RussellSteen I guess it's a tradeoff - I prefer heavy feet over bloody feet :)

Berry, I think you should reconsider the rope thing - I've heard of using rope handlines (i.e. secured to both sides of the river), but tying yourself to a rope is not a best practice at ALL. If you fall in a swift current, you're almost guaranteeing you're going to drown - you generally won't be able to use the rope to pull yourself out, instead it will hold you under the current.

Why would I take of my shoes? wouldn't that hurt my feet if the rocks are sharp?
