My Locale Pacific Northwest
About Me I'm a flatlander hick from southeast Texas who fell in love with the mountains after spending two summers in New Mexico and one in Colorado. I was mostly a dayhiker until my kids got old enough that I wasn't spending every spare minute at a game or recital. Now I get out for multiday trips 4-5 times a year. I like to keep moving, cover a lot of ground. Not big on lounging around, even if it's gorgeous. I don't like out-and-backs. There's just too much of Creation to see!

Re: Found a cork
The Schnozzle is a little spendy, but I'd buy it again in a heartbeat. I don't like blowing moisture into a pad, and the Schnozzle is incredibly fast and easy to use. It waterproofs my sl...

Re: Expeds are great
I agree with the Exped sentiment--I love my Synmat UL-7. But then I had no trouble with the fit of a tapered Big Agnes for a number of years. I'm a side sleeper, and feel like pad width/shape...

Re: Idaho experts?
Although I haven't been there, I hear the Sawtooths are quite nice, and they're close-ish to your Boise base. Whether the snow conditions will be favorable this year in late May to early J...

Re: RE: ticks
"Also chiggers are the worst." You can say that again. I almost prefer the tick diseases!

Re: How should my backpack fit?
Your pack fits a lot like mine generally do, so I'll postulate two possibilities from my own experience. First, I'm a little bit stoop shouldered and your pics make it look like you might ...

Goat Lake vs PCT
I agree that the PCT is the most scenic part of the Goat Rocks, especially of the parts that would make a good side trip from the PCT. :-) That said, I do think Goat Lake is quite nice, and the vi...

Re: Integrating Bushcraft With Modern Outdoor Life
I watched the first 10 or 15 minutes of that but gave it up when all he'd really said at that point was basically, "I actually use this stuff sometimes." I'm glad to hear that, b...
