  • Pumpkin Ale Update   4 years 38 weeks ago

    Yeah yeah yeah. You are right however the UpaDowna army brewed a stout last week! All in all I'd say at least one member is brewing everyday. So the variety is pretty out of control. Right now we have a hard cider, mead, black stout, cherry ale, pumpkin ale and a few others I can't remember, with more to come!!

  • Mountain Khakis   4 years 38 weeks ago

    Yeti,
    Thanks for the MK shout out here! I understand the precautions you have about spending the money on a pair of MKs and that you might not have had a great initial experience with MK; however, I also know that we are a company that does care what our customers think and we do want them to be happy with the product and the company. We have made numerous changes to products over our 6 years of existence to make MK better than ever.

    In regards to where we sell…we sell our products in smaller stores because this is where we see the most traction. When venturing outdoors we find people care about the gear they wear/represent (Jay, this is why your rural Mississippi store carries them). With all this said, I do hope you give MK another chance as I know you will find it will be worth it.

  • Where Are You Skiing This Season?   4 years 38 weeks ago

    Breck, Keystone, Basin and Vail (10 days)...although, I just fell in love with Loveland Pass again!

  • Mountain Khakis   4 years 38 weeks ago

    I have long wondered about these Mountain Khakis. I would like to try them. I also wonder why my store here in (basically) rural Mississippi has them. Haha. I guess we can be hard on pants too.

    I gotta say... part of the mountain lifestyle is scraping together enough $$ to get quality gear, and I jacked my $70 pair all up within weeks as well. Belt loop blew out in the first few days. I do like their ethics, but there needs to be more of a balance between price and quality considering most mountain folk are dead-broke. p.s. I am selling my pair of women's teton twills, - 1 belt loop, to buy dog sledding gear, if anyone is interested...

  • 3 SPOT Activations On One Trip!!!!   4 years 39 weeks ago

    Cool, didn't know you could rent the spot thingies. Those people are dimwits. It surprises me how many people hike w little to no water or really any plan of where to get more water. I'm glad they fined them, hopefully fined them a lot.

  • 3 SPOT Activations On One Trip!!!!   4 years 39 weeks ago

    I wonder if any previous trips were in Lost Creek Wilderness with a six pack of Mt. Dew, a pound of bacon, and a chair dangling from his pack. Ya know!

    The reliance on gadgetry will, eventually weed out the less-adequate genes in the pool, but as a trip leader I think he should have gotten something a little more harsh than a citation. He could have seriously jeopardized the safety of those trusting him. Should be banned from the park.

  • UpaDowna/Dragonfly Farm Pumpkin Ale Batch #1   4 years 39 weeks ago

    I recently had a pint of Pumpkin Stout and it was rather delicious. Good luck with this batch!

  • Lambs To The Slaughter   4 years 40 weeks ago

    So true. Then there was the woman and the buck deer west of town last week. The woman with that monkey who chewed her face off a year or so ago. So sad for the animals who will always be wild animals, but are euthanize d because of human stupidity.

  • Great Pictures!!   4 years 42 weeks ago

  • Truck Bed Sleeping Platform   4 years 43 weeks ago

    Thanks Ian. Were you still able to use the futon as a couch as well as a bed?

  • Truck Bed Sleeping Platform   4 years 45 weeks ago

    Nice work, When I made one a few years back I used an old Futon and Futon frame. took a little modification but worked great.
