My Locale NEOH
About Me I started backpacking in the Northeast in high school with 3 buddies where we had quick access to the AT (Hertlein campsite). Continued through college and dropped off during the family-building years. Got back into camping with my sons and Cub Scouts which just fueled the need for more backpacking. Getting out on weekend+ trips for the past few years and loving it all over again.

+1 Kush
I picked up one of these months ago with some Fleabay bux and I finally got to test it out on the trail. I found that folded twice (three layers) and once it settled, it was quite comfortable for ...

I see the Xlite and Xtherm getting some mention and I recently got to try my first-gen-NeoAir-warranty replacement Xlite -- very impressive upgrade IMHO. On the favorites list for sure. Always n...

Favorite piece of gear - Fall 2012 edition

New? Better Oats -- Oatmeal Raisin Cookie

BRM is my 'go to' breakfast
I know you mentioned the BRM soups which I haven't tried, but I can attest to using BRM for breakfast. I actually used Sarah's Super Charged Oatmeal recipe (
