My Locale Colorado Rockies
About Me I'm 45 years old, 6'4" and 195 lbs. I've backpacked in the Colorado Rockies, the Wasatch and Uinta mountains, and in Zions National Park. I mountain bike in the Colorado Rockies. I've kayaked in Yellowstone and on Flaming Gorge, and rafted the Green, Colorado and Snake rivers. My trips are usually a week long or less. I love to hike wherever I can. I'm an Assistant Scout Master and I'm often out with the Scouts. My immediate goal is to thru-hike the Colorado trail. I've lived in Utah, Ohio, Illinois, Argentina, California, and Colorado.

Re: Increased Strength Bubble Wrap for a Pad
Interesting idea. How wide is the bubble wrap and how much does it weigh?

Re: Pack covers - how many use them?
If I'm using my ULA Arctic Dry Pack I don't use a cover or a liner. Otherwise, I pack like Kristin does. The stuff that needs to be dry is protected and the rest doesn't really matter.

Re: PDAs

Re: Headnet - how many take one?
The BPL headnet is a standard part of my 3 season kit. It's even part of my sub 4 lb experimental list where I agonize over every gram. I love the increased visibility and ventilation as compar...

"I bed the UL gods to make this happen!" It is very fortunate that you didn't have to sleep with any UL gods. Sorry, your spelling mistake was too good to pass up :)
