About Me Hey, I'm looking for tips to go lighter and ideas for more trips. I've only been backpacking for 4 years and just recently realized my pack could've been MUCH lighter. I usually do two 9 day trips, three 5 day trips and a few weekend trips a year so I'd like to make the most out of the little time I have. I need to branch out of the same 'ol romps I frequent.

the rest of the jmt (update)
I finished the trail a few days ago and after we re-entered at reds meadow we stopped seeing intentional trash disposal and Tp for about 120 miles. When we descended from Whitney though I became en...

especially disappointed
I should mention this is all my vacation time and I've been so excited for a year to take this much time off to thru-hike the jmt. I also had to take a week of unpaid leave which leaves my posi...

"pile of rocks" called devils postpilr
Its a national monument and a very small wonder of the world. Please search images. There are signs everywhere not to go off trail because of the incredible amount of people that visit it. And if e...

the suv comment...
I didn't have time to fully explain. The national attitude I'm talking about is the suv people driving passed us with so much room in their huge vehicles trying not to make eye contact like...

trash, hidden crap , and tp everywhere on JMT.
I just exited reds meadows for an interview planted in the middle of my planned thru-hike and I can't get over what total disregard people have for the wilderness or park policies. Or are peopl...

Thermarest Neo-Air
I used a prolite 3 for years (12-13 oz) and thought it was comfortable enough until I got a neoair. I love that I don't have to fuss anymore about clearing every stick and stone before i set up ca...

I bought this sleeping bag in Juneish and returned it after being stuck with it on the jmt. I loathed this bag. The seams didn't hold so feathers were everywhere, the zipper sticks 80% of the...
