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.

cuben "fastpack"
Cool pack Chris. I've always liked the idea of carrying some weight on the front of my pack. I love being able to access certain items while hiking without having to remove my pack. Let us know...

Daryl, I might have to borrow that idea sometime. I love your ingenuity and save most of your threads, especially on your pack frames.

nice job
Looks tight. I also think this is one of the best trekking pole designs around. Great job.

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...
