My Locale Midwest
About Me I am in my late-40's and really got interested in backpacking about 10 years ago as a way to have some concentrated time with my boys, now all finishing up high school or in college. I try to get out a few times a year, including a bi-annual trip to Colorado for some of the big stuff. Otherwise I am stuck in the very boring midwest where everything exciting is a good day's drive away.

Great tarp
Great tarp, great price. I still regret the day I sold my TS. Loved waking up in the morning to the yellow glow, even when it was ugly outside.

Happy customer
Michael, just a shout out to the BC bed and quilt. I bought both the BC bed and quilt to try both out, with the intention of returning the one I liked least. I liked them both so much I kept both...

I have the ULA CDT and really like it. I have broad shoulders so the S harness is great for that. I was surprised by how big it is--it's huge. I use a Thermarest Z-pad cut down as a sit pad ...

SMD Lunar Duo
I have the SMD Lunar Duo that I use with my 20 yr old son and am surprised it doesn't get more attention on this site. It is a great tent. It's 40 oz in silnylon but it is huge inside and...

I have a lot of quilts and bags and my Palisade is the best purchase I've ever made. Incredible workmanship, huge loft, and a dream to sleep with. The one piece of gear I wouldn't hesitate...

2 2-men tents?
Have you considered doing 2 2-man tents instead of one that can fit the 4 of you? You can pitch your kids close to yours and they will likely think it is cool that they get their own tent. I sugg...
