My Locale Midwest, US
About Me I love the feeling of solitude and the chance to be at one with the world around me.

My passion for MYOG has become not just a hobby, but a way of life, and so started my own company - Simply Light Designs. Right now we focus on mostly backpacking tarps & hammocks along with various accessories.
