Sept JMT Gear List
I enjoy the Sierra Nevada in September. No crowds, bugs, less chance of thunder storms on the high passes, and water fords are trivial. It can occasionally snow (normally just a few inches at the...

Too Many
I own 5, but that's because 3 are older down sleeping bags that I don't use anymore after moving to lighter down quilts. I use to use a 15F/20F ('98 Pinnacle?), 30F ('06 Hydrogen),...

Alarm Clock
Since 2012, I've used a Timex Carabiner watch that weighs 1.4oz on my scale. I normally leave it hooked to the front of my back during the day, but leave it in my hat next to my head at night....

How light can I reasonably get in a solo shelter?
My solo sized CF tarp with lines and stakes comes in about 7.5oz but it doesn't have a beak. Rather then a true tarp, a Zpacks Hexamid tarp shelter without any of the extras only weighs 6.2o...

PCT 2015 Gear List
Unless you are married, don't carry a double size shelter as even the best of friends can break up on the trail. You are hiking most of the trail alone and don't know if someone is joinin...

I bought my MLD grace solo tarp in Spectralite (Cuben fiber to most of you) back in early 2008 just before Ron added the linelocks to the model. I've used it all over the southwest and the Sierra...
