My Locale Extreme northern Sierra Nevada
About Me I'm 60, single male. I had been in Retail Management for over 30 years. I have mostly solo bped since the early mid '70's. I XC some, not afraid to go alone, I also solo winter camp, even out in sub-zero temps. A few years ago, I went on a backcountry bp to Alaska, where I flew in by bush plane with five others into Wrangell/St. Elias NP. Since early 2010, I have been collecting vintage/antique camping and bp stoves, having acquired over 90 now. I like many outdoor activities, from bping to dirtbike riding, gardening.

Re: Emigrant SUL

Spreading the enthusiasm
I remembered this thread and stirred up some interest on another forum I belong to. Only thing I did not know, was how you counted, if you did, the number of items allowed or aimed for. Can anyone...

Re: "service dog"
Just like being 60 now, I don't ask for a discount because I don't think of myself as a Seasoned citizen yet, so when I was training my late dog Pooch for SAR, I never gave it a thought to ...

Packing evenly
I find that if I have not done a good job of packing my pack evenly, it has a big impact on shoulder comfort, even though I try to transfer weight to my hips. Currently, I have a 33 oz. (Zimmerbui...
