My Locale Texas
About Me Started camping in the 60s when I first became active in Scouting. Started out with canvas tents, a BSA Rucksack, and Army Surplus gear. In the 70's started upgrading to external frame packs, down bags and lightweight stoves. Went to Philmont, and backpacked primarily in the Pecos Wilderness (NM) and Weminuche Wilderness (CO) areas. Still involved with Scouting and will be going back to Philmont in a few years with my youngest son. Want to fully embrace and utilize the UL backpacking method by the time that your Troop heads out.
