My Locale Extreme northern Sierra Nevada
About Me I'm 60, single male. I had been in Retail Management for over 30 years. I have mostly solo bped since the early mid '70's. I XC some, not afraid to go alone, I also solo winter camp, even out in sub-zero temps. A few years ago, I went on a backcountry bp to Alaska, where I flew in by bush plane with five others into Wrangell/St. Elias NP. Since early 2010, I have been collecting vintage/antique camping and bp stoves, having acquired over 90 now. I like many outdoor activities, from bping to dirtbike riding, gardening.

Power Pot
My paperback doesn't need recharging. I'm single, so no need for communication devices on trips. Duane

Bubble attacks!
:) Kinda funny when we talk about line size, can fish see it, etc. For years now since I found out about using a clear bubble to get a fly out "there", I have to laugh at times when my ...

I'm mostly solo year 'round. Bring a book, stomp around camp, get to know your immediate area. Duane

Is this just bad luck with aggressive dogs or is this normal?"
With that many encounters, I'd contact the FS/permit issuing authorities to give descriptions of dogs/people and time/location, maybe they can follow up with correspondence with those parties. ...

GG the One
I had talked with one of the members here over a week ago face to face just before my trip, said their One was not very water resistant. Sounds like an item not suited for wet conditions. Duane
