About Me I love the wilderness and UL gear.
I went on my first backpacking trip in Oregon when I was 6 weeks old (AUG72). It snowed all night long. When day light came I was the only thing left dry. Just wish I could remember it!

In 2000 my first UL trip resulted in a night hike to stay warm. Wrong gear.

Finished the BPL Scouting course (May 2010). Very cool. It was like closing a door. I feel like I can teach the principals now.

RE: "How do you keep your Pack dry when using a Bivy Sack?"
I use a 32 gallon black garbage sack. If I don't need it I use it for the next trip. Great survival layer too (sort of).

"Gossamer Gear Gorilla Backpack Review"
