My Locale SouthEast
About Me 39 year old living in Greenville, SC. I grew up playing in the woods of the PeeDee region of SC. I'm an avid cyclist with a new found passion for bikepacking. I do most of my bike camping, hiking, kayaking and cycling in SC, NC & GA. I've settled in at about 10 to 12 pounds completely loaded at this point - a balance of comfort walking and in camp.

Caldera Cone Case Ideas?
I'm looking for a lightweight and low volume way to keep from crushing the cone in my pack. Ideally, it would serve more than one purpose as well (thinking stakes, etc). DM
