About Me Having been a backpacker off and on since the early 90's when a trip to Philmont infected me w/ the bug, I have transitioned over to a lighter kit. My first encounter with UL backpacking was some CDT thru-hikers I met in New Mexico. I went home and combed the web, found BPL, and the rest is history. Right now, I'm between jobs, working at a local running shop and have been doing a little freelance writing, hoping to find a voice for a writing career perhaps. Previously, I have obtained a meteorology degree and master's degree in secondary educ.

re: 20 bucks
Got mine last week and used it on a gift for a friend. Snowpeak insulated ti mug for $14 after shipping. Too bad I didn't need anything else for free shipping.

re: ohm hipbelt
Just measured my Ohm straps, 3/4". However, mine aren't twisting in the ladderloc. They are just sliding off the padding and rubbing my hips. I don't think this has anything to do w/ ...

Ditto the Fancy Feast Stove
You can also use a beanie weanie/potted meat can too, if you don't have a cat to feed the food to. Of course, I'd probably be more likely to consume the Fancy Feast before I'd eat beani...

re: ohm hipbelt
The longer I own my Ohm, the more I think they goofed on the design of the hipbelt. The present design is fine if you put a piece of grosgrain on the hipbelt padded wing like a belt loop on jeans, ...
