About Me I'm new, but the idea of carrying around 50 lbs of gear is not enticing in the least. I've spent a lot of time car camping in the past, and truthfully, it got boring. I wanted something new and exciting. I wanted to see places most folks will never see because they just don't have what it takes. Backpacking is something I've always wanted to do. Now, I'm doing it!

Re: Re: about Team MLD...
Nah, their space suit probably only weighed something in the neighborhood of 9 oz or so. Special fibers and all. Tom

Lighten Up! by Don Ladigin
First, let me preface this by saying that I found no new information in the book really. However, that doesn't take away from the book. What I did was read it in the context to which it was inte...
