My Locale Midwest
About Me I am in my late-40's and really got interested in backpacking about 10 years ago as a way to have some concentrated time with my boys, now all finishing up high school or in college. I try to get out a few times a year, including a bi-annual trip to Colorado for some of the big stuff. Otherwise I am stuck in the very boring midwest where everything exciting is a good day's drive away.

I'm in Indianapolis but I might join you fine folks depending on the weekend (10/24 works for me currently) and the location. I've never gotten to one of these but think I would enjoy it.

Great container but misses your weight
From reading other entries here at BPL, I've started hiking with a Glad brand 3.5 cup (30 oz) plastic container with screw-on lid. It weighs 2.75 oz (78 grams) so it misses your weight target,...

Attaching the MLD bottle pocket
Ok, I am embarrassed to ask this because the answer has to be simple but I can't figure it out. I ordered the new MLD Core with a bottle pocket. The top has the clip to attach to the shoulder...

Awesome product
I have the Palasades quilt and it is probably my favorite piece of gear (and I have a bunch of gear). Very well made and unbelievable loft. Like the others, I've never used the attachment sys...
