About Me I'm a graduate student in theological ethics, originally from Delaware but now in California. I've been backpacking since Boy Scouts and after a few years of refining my system, I think I can finally call myself an ultralighter!

Harbor Freight Japanese-style Pull Saw
I found this guy at Harbor Freight for $6 after a 20% off coupon. I drilled out the handle to save a bit of weight—about an ounce, I think. Now it's 6 ounces. Replacing the handle entirel...

Re: Trekking pole extender
