About Me I live in the Redwoods of Northern California. It rains here, a lot, often going 30+ days without it stopping. I love it!

I have migrated from a 35 pound BPW setup to a winter time setup of under 7 pounds, a shoulder season setup of under 5 pounds and a summer time setup of under two pounds. Check out my website http://www.hikelighter.com/ for my gear list and reading my articles, and my youtube channel http://www.youtube.com/user/HikeLighter for videos on SUL and XUL gear and whatnot.

Re: three days, two nights w/ a 24 liter pack?
It's pushing things a bit, but your thoughts if it seems plausible Hey Mike. I would not say it is "pushing things a bit" nor that it is not plausible. I have a few hundred nights ...

My vote's for Big Basin Redwoods State Park at Sequoia Campground. Never been there. How does this park fit into the Ken's Advice for Organizing Your Own Gathering of Gear Geeks factors?
