My Locale Exploring San Juan talus
About Me Bible believer, disciple of Jesus Christ, wilderness guide, rock climber, trail runner, mountain climber, ultralight nerd. I grew up in upstate NY going to camp in the Adirondacks where I eventually led trips on all the 46 high peaks, where going heavy led me to find Golite, through which I bought Beyond Backpacking, and the rest is history...
for years I've been an ultralight freak, sewing much of my own gear.

Dasani Dasani 1 Liter bottle
it is really light, lighter than a 1 L gatorade, but is weaker and has a small opening, making it messier to put in drink mix. Mine worked fine, but they have a shorter life than gatorade bottles. T...
