My Locale Upper Peninsula of Michigan
About Me You can find me almost daily running, skiing, or snowshoeing with my dogs on sections of the North Country Trail in the UP. I don't get out backpacking as much as I would like, but I'm working on that. I dabbled with some solo winter treks this year and had a ball. I put in some good solo time on Isle Royale last year and hope to push myself even further on the island again this year. I have been learning a lot on BPL and my pack is a whole lot lighter, but I know I still have a long ways to go!

I'm realizing now the Big Sky International Convertible winter configuration should have been on my list, along with the Tarptent Scarp 2 with the solid interior. A Ray Estrella quote from t...

+1 on the Porkies and the Upper Peninsula in general. The North Country Trail that cuts across the U.P. is very rustic. Not all the sections are complete, but the Peter Wolfe Chapter has the mo...

Solid Nylon Inner?
Andy, thanks for the suggestion on looking into the Tarptent Scarp 2. I didn't realize the Scarp 2 had an available solid inner. Is it very finicky to pitch? It isn't freestanding, which...
