My Locale SouthEast
About Me 39 year old living in Greenville, SC. I grew up playing in the woods of the PeeDee region of SC. I'm an avid cyclist with a new found passion for bikepacking. I do most of my bike camping, hiking, kayaking and cycling in SC, NC & GA. I've settled in at about 10 to 12 pounds completely loaded at this point - a balance of comfort walking and in camp.

The Shortest Bikepacking Trip on Record

Best Strapping Mechanism?
I love the velcro straps with a pull buckle (photo included). You can find them at hardware stores, Wally World (occasionally) and if you're lucky at work. I use them to hold my sleep mat on my...

Lightest 500ml ti cup
I'd guess the Trapper has to be in there somewhere (1.65oz). Technically its 475ml but that's close enough. DM

UL pillows that don't feel like a ballon

UL pillows that don't feel like a ballon
I've been through a lot of them. So far, all of the pneumatics feel like a balloon to me (tried Montbell, Exped & Kookabay). The best out of those was the Exped because of the profile and t...

FS: MSR HyperFlow Water Filter - Never Used $70
I know this filter got some bad initial press but I love mine. Its very fast, easy to backflush after you read the directions and its small. DM
