My Locale Extreme northern Sierra Nevada
About Me I'm 60, single male. I had been in Retail Management for over 30 years. I have mostly solo bped since the early mid '70's. I XC some, not afraid to go alone, I also solo winter camp, even out in sub-zero temps. A few years ago, I went on a backcountry bp to Alaska, where I flew in by bush plane with five others into Wrangell/St. Elias NP. Since early 2010, I have been collecting vintage/antique camping and bp stoves, having acquired over 90 now. I like many outdoor activities, from bping to dirtbike riding, gardening.

Zpacks Arc Blast, how well does it cinch down?
It only rolls down so far. Maybe don't stuff your sleeping bag etc. Duane

I've been able to get at it, so was surprised it had not moved when I was setting up last night. I should take a note book with, so I can check later, getting too old to try to remember stuff....

Staking Zpacks Plex shelter end-panels
I stake to give more room at the ends. I'm 6' and end up setting up my quilt too far at the head end of my Solplex. Using poles or sticks raises the ends some if I do it right, using smal...
