    Great TR and photos- Thanks. On the subject of climbing Mt Fairweather, I recently read a book called "The Last of His Kind", David Roberts' biography of Bradford Washburn. It contains great Fairweather history, as well as Alaska Range and more.

    I was cleaning out our auto shop last week, rooting through the really old stuff at the back of the shelves. In among the carburetor cleaner and the hardened tubes of Permatex I found this old can covered...

  • Ok, I'm just being lazy posting this question instead of hunting for the answer, but does anyone have handy the weights for built-up 8.00x6 and 8.50x6 on Cleveland wheels? I've already got the 8.50 approval,...

  • Great photography and commentary! Iceland has been high on the list for a while, and this just bumped it higher. BTW, also loved Arnar's vimeo that is linked in the Featured Videos section. -DP

  • The spring cost just over a grand for a one-off order. Greg- I haven't actually had my first taste of titanium yet, so I don't know yet whether it is habit-forming!

  • Rob, the titanium spring is supposed to be about a third lighter, so a few pounds at best. They make the leaves thicker than on the original one, not for strength, but for desired rigidity and springiness. I didn't do it for weight so much as because it will never rust or corrode, should never break, and is rated to a bajillion duty cycles.

  • Ha! Good ideas (Have a helmet already). Actually, I think what I need is a hangar- also a specialty of yours I realize. Need some land first though. Just not in Soldotna.
