My Locale Boulder, CO
About Me I started backpacking as a teenager in southern appalachia. My summers in college were spent in mountain heaven, glacier national park. Since then, I've lived and played in the high sierras, the cascades, and now the colorado front range. Walking into the mountains for a few days with a light pack never seems to lose its charm. Also a snapper of many photos. Check out my instagram for short visual trip reports and such.

Ultimate direction Fastpack 20

nice shoes that aren't altra or innov8
wow, the innov 8 and the altra shoe bias is pretty strong here. I don't like the fit of either, and altras made me feel like I was walking on wooden boards, not agile at all. And it was only re...

A couple people have contacted me letting me know about cheaper options online, but I think there's confusion between this model and the 'carbon approach' model since they are named alm...

same problem
Gene, I had the same issue. I move around quite a lot to get the angles I want, so having poles in hand is a major PITA. If its a really photogenic area, I'll probably just stow the poles, whic...

full dyneema
I went through the original HMG ice pack pretty quickly (warranty issue) and went for the upgrade to a full dyneema ice pack with ski straps on the side of the pack. I've spent a bit too much t...

nice thread
I got really into buddhism in high school and had some pretty strong (hippyish) ideas that material objects had little to do with happiness. Meditation and Buddhism is still pretty cool to me, but ...
