My Locale Pacific Northwest
About Me My name is Marcus, but I go by Critter.

I bring to the table, 'critter style'.

'Critter style', in the truest sense of the phrase, means no sleeping bag, pad, or tent. "Critter style" also means making due with what you have. Critter style also means, instead of buying gear you make due with things like duck tape, cordage, and a material such as plastic.

I sleep under logs and carry next to nothing while traveling across snow in rain and falling trees.

Hiking in the Snow for Beginners
Surviving in the snow is a topic that not a lot of people seem to want to touch. I work around lots of inexperienced visitors who are absolutely set on heading off to hike in the snow. I made these...

Re: Re: Re: Bear Wires

Re: Do you dry the interior of your Platypus? How?
Inflate it and lay it down on top of your cable box, PlayStation, ect. It takes about 8 hours with this method in humid rainforests.
