A guy who is into a little bit of everything...music (listening and making it), photography, DIY, technology, the outdoors (hiking, backpacking, climbing...), and trying to live by grace through faith. I also currently work at a high adventure camp in the Southeast where I also do a little bit of everything...

comment How to get started on canyoning?
@BenCrowell - Well I was going to go ahead and create the synonym in the tags when I edited the wiki but it wouldn't allow it since the tags were under the limit still. My reasoning was to create both because, for example, hiking and trekking are the same thing but are different tags for the variations in English dialects. If there's a better way than what I did then feel free to fix it. That was my first tag creation,...so yeah I might've done it incorrectly.

I created tags for canyoneering and canyoning so now it's tagged properly. And by the way, welcome to The Great Outdoors!

It's called canyoneering in North America and canyoning most everywhere else.

comment Trekking poles: what are the pros and cons of Anti-shock vs standard designs?
Good to know! And the set of poles I borrowed were the twist-lock kind and I found myself readjusting the poles multiple times over the course of the trip. I was not a fan. Thanks for the confirmation!

comment What are the most recommended guide/maps to bring on a PCT thru-hike?
@ppl - I see. And I also now see that this was "asked Apr 14 '13" not "asked Apr 13 '14" as my brain first interpreted. But I will post any further discussion in the meta post you created.

comment Pike fishing equipment & rigging
Since you aren't having much luck with this question being answered you might try splitting it up into more answerable sections. Such as one question focused on equipment, and then another on technique for starters. You could honestly have one single question just dealing with the rod type and going into more detail with that. As it stands it's just too broad to get sufficient answers.
