My Locale Hamilton
About Me I was born and raised in Missoula, Montana. As a kid, backpacking meant hauling pots, pans, grills, bacon, eggs and pancake batter into the hills in order to be out on my own.

Pabst Beer
I won't try and defend myself on that one. I will say, however, that a warm Pabst followed by a backpacking trip makes the Odells IPA taste all the better upon return! (Besides, we WERE in Uta...

Thanks for the comments!
I really appreciate the comments on this article! I had a great time getting down to that base weight, and have enjoyed going further. The Dr. Bronner's was peppermint and I look forward to...

Is there any such thing as a utilitarian all purpose shelter
I made the jump at about 6:30 this morning. Enough deliberation... I've purchased the GoLite Shangri-la 3 (essentially the new version of the Hex as far as I can tell.) In fact I jumped al...

"Is there any such thing as a utilitarian all purpose shelter?"
Thanks for your comments Roger. I like the weight savings of the Betalight and had considered it (and the MLD Superfly) until I realized that I wouldn't be able to sleep side by side with my...

Re: Is there any such thing as a utilitarian all purpose shelter
Benjamin! That's exactly what I'm getting at! If the super-structure of clothing system, sleeping system, shelter system or packing system can remain in place, than the skin should be...

Is there any such thing as a utilitarian all purpose shelter
Ok, ok. I kinda figured that would be the general consensus. The idea is beautiful; however. Almost exactly what I'm after. I want a shelter that can be layered like you'd layer clothes...

WTB: A MID style tent MLD, OWARE, whichever

HEX versus the MLD MID
It seems to me that the Hex (and I'm really thinking the Shagri-la 3 now) would only be a truly utilitarian piece of equipment if I also had the bug shelter (another $125 plus 2 lbs 5 oz). W...

Utilitarian shelter
Thanks Michael! That's great to hear. In fact, that may cinch it for me. I have to admit, the lack of a vestibule isn't the greatest, but for all that space that could serve the same p...
