My Locale Southeast USA
About Me Grew up playing in the lakes and the mountains of North Georgia. Started backpacking in a coed Explorer Scout Troup in the 1970's (yes I am a girl) I outfitted & led groups on backpacking trips for 20 years until I was totalled by a drunk driver. I got back on the trail when I read Ray Jardine's book Beyond Backpacking. I teach lightweight backpacking programs for different groups and currently have a great gig at the LenFoote Hike Inn. I am a member of the Trail Dames hiking club.

lighter stove
I use the Soto Wind master canister stove. I like the igniter and use the larger pot support. This has become my one stove for backpacking, car and kayak camping.

Water Kit
What gear is in your water kit? What containers do you carry? Do you filter, zap, pour or pop a pill? What has made you cuss and what has made you glad.

Going From a Bag to a Quilt
I migrated from a bag to a quilt when I was a hammock hanger. I realized I wanted the option to zip up and snuggle when it got really cold. I wound up buying a Zpacks 20 degree bag. Mine is the sho...
