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!

I do wish I'd snapped a picture of the guy I saw heading up Goat Ridge in the Goat Rocks Wilderness of WA state some years ago. He was tall and thin, wearing one of those huge external frame p...

Tick spoons...great in theory

Re: TT Rainbow?
I can't answer the questions about TT's new silnylon, but I'm on my seventh season with a Rainbow and am 6'5" tall, so I can speak about the Rainbow's design. There are ve...
