My Locale California
About Me I live in the San Francisco Bay Area with my wife and two children. I have hiked and backpacked throughout the state and beyond. I'm always looking to lighten my pack and lengthen the days and mileage of my trips. Favorite trips I've taken include thru-hikes of the John Muir Trail, High Sierra Trail, and Tahoe Rim Trail.

Re: Re: FS: new BPL Thorofare pants (m)
Joe: I think they will probably fit a little bigger size than 33 because the waist cord is stretchy, but I'm not positive because I have a smaller waist so I can't really test them on a bi...

Re: PCT - Barker Pass to Sierra City
Casey: Thanks. I have been to Desolation before, and have another trip planned through there soon, so I purposely skipped it in September. It is certainly beautiful. I know the terrain I covere...

Re: Re: Re: PCT - Barker Pass to Sierra City
Jed: For me, solo backpacking is very rewarding. (I try to do at least one solo trip each year.) The fact that the trail was mostly empty (completely empty for the second half of the trip), adde...

Thanks Tony. It was about time I pulled my weight and posted some photos of a trip. I thought it would be a chore to put them up, but I really enjoyed pulling out my notebook, maps and photos and...

PCT - Barker Pass to Sierra City
Last September (2008) I hiked 5 days solo along the Pacific Crest Trail from Barker Pass (up from the West shore of Lake Tahoe) to Sierra City, about 73 trail miles North. It is probably not a sec...

Ventana / Big Sur
Another area to consider that is still close enough to the Bay Area is the Ventana Wilderness / Big Sur area. Parts of it are very remote, rugged and beautiful. However, there was a huge fire the...

FYI, According to Yosemite's website, the Rancheria Falls trailhead has 21 reservable spots per day and 14 first come first served spots. I doubt it's a problem in April, but it would make...

Mountain Laurel Design FS exodus
I have taken the FS Exodus on 2 trips this summer with very different circumstances. Both left me very happy with the FS. First, in July, I hiked 130 miles along the PCT in the Sierra. For this t...

I have to add my two cents about MLD's service. Early this summer I damaged the bottom of my Exodus pack. The damage was completely my fault (sliding down granite). I wrote Ron and asked if he ...

The Exodus is the new 2009 version of the MLD Zip pack. So far, I have taken it on 2 overnight trips and one 9 day trip. This is my first frameless pack, so I can't compare to others, but the pa...

These are my new go-to electrolyte replacement solution. I used them in conjunction with Saltstick pills on a 9 day TRT thru-hike. Prior to that hike I had always had evening headaches and sometimes...

I like this quilt but give it a 4 because the temperature rating is optimistic. I've used it once below freezing, and while I was fine, I had to layer up substantially. I used it on a mid-Septem...

Sunday Afternoon Adventure hat
I highly recommend this hat for sun protection. This hat is light (M=2.5 oz on my scale) and provides full sun coverage due to the long back and wide brim, which allows you to carry much less sunbloc...
