About Me My wife and I are originally from MI. We love to travel and hike. I've been an avid backpacker for over 20 years. After my first week long trip carrying #60 I started down the lightweight road. I like to make some of my own gear when I can. I've been a designer all my adult life, primarily in the automotive industry but also 6 years in aerospace.

looks nice
Nice design. That basic design is tough to improve on for a basic, 2 straight pole shelter. I'm also into parametric modeling ( doing it for about 20 years)and have created a few different t...

Re: Backpack Dilemma
Roll the pad inside the pack so that it acts as a liner. Then I'd stuff the sleeping bag in a tall kitchen garbage bag and put that in the bottom of the pack. Then I'd stuff the tent, w/o...
