Re: Green Boots of Everest

I’ll second that- eerie.

Kinda fascinating how the rules change up in The Death Zone as far as people looking out for each other.

Re: Peltonen Metsä Step 270

Finding the .455 & 3cm interesting. Had to hobble out and check my Metsäs- my boot center (size 44) is right around 113cm pins mounted at balance point. Using the .455 & 3cm puts me at about 119cm- roughly where my current pin point is on Xplore. I did already have the thought that moving them forwa...

Re: Weak ankles due to minor accidents

That Inov-8 Men's Roclite G 286 GTX Hiking Boot is more boot than I want for the trails but it looks okay. I do have a pair of VivoBareFoot TRACKER II FG that have been a fantastic boot for me. I typically wear FiveToes or go barefoot a lot, it works for me. Transitioning to minimalist was pretty qu...

Re: The Alberta XCD thread

Lhartley, have you ever gone to Nose Hill to ski? I think a person could get some long stretches to drop a knee (its been at least 20 years since I last run/rode there, never did ski it).

Re: Peltonen Metsä Step 270

Hey capercaillie, slowly improving. Won’t see skis again this season but hoping to start riding again late in April.

Re: Feedback after Greenland pulka trip (pic heavy)

Awesome, thanks for sharing the trip info, it’s inspiration for future adu. Nice test of the Xplore bindings for a multiday tour. As far as the Alfa Polar boots go would you have gone a size smaller (you mentioned foot movement)?
