My Locale Northeast Ohio
About Me Grew up tromping about the woods across from our home. Unknowingly fell in love with the freedom and peace I felt there. Hit college, a buddy drug me into the Catskill mountains for an overnight. Slept on lumpy bare ground underneath a Pepsi blanket my mom acquired free with proof of purchase stamps. Ate cold chili from can. Stared at stars, heard the soul piercing echo of our own voices calling us from across the nearby pond. Shivered through a fitful sleep. Woke groggy. Hiked rocky trail out. Stood by car thinking "When can we go back?!"

re: putting wet clothes on in the AM

I use the Evernew 1.3L Ti non-stick pot. I design my kit for thru-hike types of appetites. I like the 1.3L for cooking a whole batch of shells and cheese and then adding a tuna pack. You can stil...
