My Locale Southcentral Texas
About Me A little bit of everything....:UL backpacking, attempts of Rainer, Hood, Three-Fingered Jack (them 3, me 0), cycling, kayaking, krav maga, scotch from Islay, Tough Mudder coming up (what was I thinking?), etc....

Attainable Goals: successful climb of 14K+ peak, thru-hike something with two or three letters, kayak during a snowfall.

Silly Goals: Triple Crown before my last breath, summit Vinson Massif before any other puertorican does it.

Pocket Chair
So I called them today and the lady said that it weighs 3 pounds. Then I read that it's the shipping weight. Even at 2 pounds, it's all a bit odd. They must wear pants with pockets made of ...

Garner State Park
Garner State Park. This is base-camp style hiking with easy access to the river, tubing (oops....toobing), and kayaks. Hiking is rugged with a few nice climbs to test the quads. I would reserve t...

+4. I have the Small. I'm 5'8 and the only things that hang off the end are my feet. The full sized version would've been overkill for me. I'd love it if they came out with a to...
