About Me Hey, I'm looking for tips to go lighter and ideas for more trips. I've only been backpacking for 4 years and just recently realized my pack could've been MUCH lighter. I usually do two 9 day trips, three 5 day trips and a few weekend trips a year so I'd like to make the most out of the little time I have. I need to branch out of the same 'ol romps I frequent.

Jesus Christ, really 33,000? Are there really that many deer that need to be "population controlled"?

Bear cans necessary
Bears are very common in the area and even in town. You'll notice when you drive through town that the dumpsters are locked.
