My Locale NEOH
About Me I started backpacking in the Northeast in high school with 3 buddies where we had quick access to the AT (Hertlein campsite). Continued through college and dropped off during the family-building years. Got back into camping with my sons and Cub Scouts which just fueled the need for more backpacking. Getting out on weekend+ trips for the past few years and loving it all over again.

Re: is a knife a non-essential item?
There is a reason it's on the '10 essentials' list which was established for safety. You technically don't need any of them (arguments will stem from this statement), but when you ...

Re: Hooded vs. hoodless puffies
Lot of factors here (as is typical) -- personal experience is that I have moved towards a hood on my puffy layer and like it. That being said, I am a sleeping bag sleeper and don't need to con...
