My Locale Missouri
About Me I'm interested in climbing, hiking, canoing and just plain camping in the outdoors. I've not gone on any long trips (just 1-3 nights) and I've kept from hauling heavy loads by base and car camping. I would like to decrease the amount carried so I can experience the wilderness more freely, and get further from civilization.

Re: One more nitpick
The Sigg rack is reusable for years. If they ship only one rack per store, that seems like a good use of resources. Furthermore, I thought the camelback bottle shrink wrap is good minimalist pa...

Re: MYOG Momentum Bivy
That's a really good idea. I'll try and make a head net that can fit on the bivy and also be used with a brimmed hat for around camp. Thanks
