Hey Ray - Asolo Fugitive question

The picture on the bottom of your Asolo Fugitive OR says you were in a 
bit of pain, if you don't mind me asking, why were you in pain?  Was 
it the boots?

Hi Jamie,

That trip was supposed to take place one year after we actually did 
it. One week before we left I bought a new pair of boots to handle 
the desert part of the hike. I am a very hot-blooded person by 
nature (no funny comments) and was worried about sweating my feet 
off with the Fugitives. I should not have. I destroyed my feet on 
the hike across the desert. I was told at the ER in Lone Pine to 
quit the hike, and that I might lose one toe. (Not toenail, I lost 
five of those.) I have nerve damage in my right leg to this day. The 
Fugitives and a warmer bag were waiting for me in Lone Pine.

I had not started journaling my hikes when we did this (2004) but a 
guy from back east wants to do it so bad that I wrote it up for him 
and am going to help him with his logistics. If you want to read 
what I gave him and the pics, give me a shout off-line. I don't want 
to clog the system.

Owner Review Dual Core pad - Ray Estrella

OK guys, my last OR of the month and maybe the summer. I think that 
I can give presentations on writing ORs now. (Notice I did not say 
how to properly write a good OR.) And they are getting more fun to 
write. MealGear was my funnest. (Is that a word? I don't think so. 
Pam or Roger will tell me.) Well the HTML is here;

Well, I can't disappoint you.  Nope, funnest isn't a word. :0)

Ray, are these meals considered "Dual Core pads" because they both 
pad sharp objects on the interior of your pack and pad your belly

Re: Hey Ray - Asolo Fugitive question

Thanks Ray.  I don't have any plans to hike it and I'm not 
interested in the boots but I was still curious about your pain.  
I'm very sorry to hear you had such a rough go and even more so that 
you have lingering damage still.  Good to know the toes survived 
though.

I've been tring to hike the 20 highest (with trails) peaks here in 
AZ but haven't done any in extreme conditions.  My toes are a bit 
crooked but I'd like to keep them as they are thank you.  :)

PLEASE READ:> Do you need a Mentor?, 7/2/2006, 9:30 am

Reminder from the Calendar of BackpackGearTest
PLEASE READ:> Do you need a Mentor?

Sunday July 2, 2006
9:30 am - 9:30 am
This event repeats every other week.
Notes:
Here at BackpackGearTest.org we have a Mentor program that was established to help newbies through the somewhat confusing process of becoming gear testers. We're also here for veteran testers who'd like to get some feedback on their test applications or test reports. Whatever stage you're at we're here to help.

If you'd like a Mentor, please contact the Mentor Coordinator (jennifer.pope-Re5JQEeQqe8AvxtiuMwx3w@public.gmane.org) and please include "Mentor Request" in your subject line.

Thanks!
Jennifer Pope
BackpackGearTest.org Mentor Coordinator
