I appreciate all the PMs (not really) but a) I'm not the only cross dresser in the US and b) I was not shot today trying to ram my way in to the NSA.

Re: Bazinga
With the SUL/should I shouldn't I, this all ties into your personal goals and trip goals. If you are pushing a record of a long trail, then you should probably consider it pretty seriously. If ...

Re: Re: Sub 5 pound - does it really matter?
I've re read the responses, including mine, and fail to see anyone framing this as a right/wrong conversation. Pack weight is a variable. Whether or not an extra five or ten lbs will have...

Re: Sub 5 pound matters
Yes it matters. I feel fine carrying a 35 total pack weight. Somewhere around 50lbs, I start to get scattered moments of cranky old man syndrome. My days of carrying 75-100lb packs are far behin...

Re: Re: Hammock to start with? Hennessy it is!
Depends. Tarp is pretty critical. If you have a tarp that you can get by with, then I'd get the UQ first. I've tried sleeping on a pad in a hammock and thought it was not a great experie...
