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: jamie's tent
Nice tent Jamie, looks like the MYOG bug continues to treat you well. The tarp and bivy wet my appetite. Your tent looks like the cut on my Quest Outfitters tarp. Did you by any chance use their sp...

thanks jack
These are a start. I hope to collect a collage of sorts from various users. I found some more on the old Swap archives, but they aren't closeups.

Golite Breeze Pics?
I'm sewing a pack for my wife after finding that most of the small frameless packs are still oddly sized and don't really fit. I would like to see some better pics of a Breeze than I can fi...

re: peter
Peter, in Beyond Backpacking Jardine recommends Polarguard 3D and Primaloft. Not sure if that's what he's still using in these kits. I bet they will kindly tell you if you email. The kit in...

Nice work John. I've got some old running shirts that need retiring. Guess where they're going?

re: vacs
Tim, I like how you assign ownership to your wife on the Dyson. Looking at the prices of those things, I wouldn't want to replace one, much less face my wife with a broken vacuum and a room ful...

re: pinnacle

Ditto on using old pack for template. If you don't have an old pack: Measure your torso(illiac crest to vertebrae at base of neck(forgot #?)). From there I would reverse engineer based on th...

re: teal color
I settled for teal from Quest recently on a tarp I made. Silver silnylon is in short supply. When I received the fabric I found it to be more "natural" green than a bright teal color. I&#...
