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.

Can't wait to see that!
I love my LuxuryLite cot, but it is usually just used for Scout and car camping. At 3# (first gen) I can't justify taking it with on a weekend BP trip since it is heavier than each of my '...

I started with one of the older Jetboil PCS setups which I love, but I found it a little overkill for one person cooking water. I since have moved to my own version of their starter kit using an S...
