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
John, hopefully I didn't wait too long to respond. Honestly, I can't recommend Lynskey. If you're interested in talking shop on bike frames I'm always game. I think you can get a lo...

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

Ken, the WM down pillow does flatten out with time but it hasn't been too big of an issue for me since I tend to move around a lot in my sleep. When I'm rolling from stomach to side, etc. I...
