    I did a review of technical underwear for the magazine a few years ago and never turned back. Several guys I know swear by the Patty'G boxers as the be-all end-all. I kid you not. We love us some Patagonia "base layers".

    I would not have broken a sweat over the tromp-through, though may have politely said something. No need for any big conflict though.

    Have you tried them?

    Not ladies (unless that's your fancy ;) ), but technical base layers can make a HUGE difference in comfort. I would equate them to about 1/2 the step from neoprene to breathable waders.

    I've had it happen to me, but I've also been on the other side.

    I've had to go through someone's camp because they decided to set-up on the only safe access within 500yds in either direction.

    I think etiquette isn't so much about what we do/don't do, but how we deal with breaches of etiquette. Often a more instructive, less combative informing can serve as a more helpful means.

    Lastly, it's been my experience a lot more fresh-to-the-outdoors people are camping/fishing this year. Maybe it's the economy (more people enjoying nearby attractions), but I can't even count the number of brand-spanking-new tent/sleeping bag/stove set-ups I've seen being put up at 11PM without a lantern. :D

    The key is to buy Pattigucci stuff on sale. Just got a brand spankin' new set of quick dry nylon fishing pants for half price; the only price I buy their stuff at. Yeah, Pattigucci silkweight boxers are great for fishing and the only kind I take when traveling.

    Oh, and the guy tromping thru camp, just off the bastard and move camp before he begins to stink much. I'm particular about my camp layout, and no-f'ing-body better walk thru the space where I cook.

    So when did under pants become techincal? Look under pants serve one purpose and one purpose only and that is to protect your "outer pants" from getting a healthy dose of shit stains. I just go to Wal-Mart every couple of years to get brand new shit filters. It's a lot cheaper. Since we turned to the subject of under pants.:thumb:

    Salmo, what if some guy just walked through your cooking area with an attitude, but on his way through handed you a fine glass of wine? Yeah, thought so. :)

    In the 40s John Huelsdonk pioneered the use of chamois shorts under 4 layers of wool. Some called him a pussy but they named a triathlon after him.

    Chris, we all have our weaknesses, and exceptions serve to prove the rule.

    Having the right base layer is very, very important to having a comfortable day in my waders.
    I always got some strange looks when I would buy XXL panty hose back in the good ole days when men were men and chest waders were rubber.
    O' ya and the guy walking through camp, yes he was rude.
    I always like to treat folks like I would like to be treated.
    So I say to the rude guy "you just never know who you're dealing with." How about do ya like my new .45, she's a butte.

    If you have a .45 in your camp, I'd definitely be coming over - just to check it out!

    1911s are my 2nd passion. :)

    This reminds me of a time i was camping near index. This old drunk naked dude came stumbling right through the center of our camp and into my mothers tent. At first I was shocked, then I yelled..."Dad! stop chasing viagra with Jack Daniels!"

    Ah, I can't help it.

    Mumbles: Are you saying you go commando? That is a new definition of combat fishing.
