About Me I love the wilderness and UL gear.
I went on my first backpacking trip in Oregon when I was 6 weeks old (AUG72). It snowed all night long. When day light came I was the only thing left dry. Just wish I could remember it!

In 2000 my first UL trip resulted in a night hike to stay warm. Wrong gear.

Finished the BPL Scouting course (May 2010). Very cool. It was like closing a door. I feel like I can teach the principals now.

Bag v Quilt

RE: "Fire in lieu of sleeping gear?"
The most successful trips I had were all about the campcraft and just day hiking from a central point. It is more of a survival technique. It is a lot of fun but if you don't have hard wood v...

RE: Converting to lightweight and looking for suggestions
I would suggest using the GoLite Pinnacle over the Jam to start as a pack. I made the same conversion over the last two or three years and have both packs. It takes a while to make up your mind o...

RE: Pants - recommend
I am on a Cabela's kick tonight, I guess. The chaps are a good idea and they either come with a belt or you add your own. I will leave it to you for the research. There are always ripstop ...

RE: help sizing for tall/skinny people
I am 6'2" but a size 2XL... That could be a nice way to put it. I have a large size torso and have many of the same problems. For pants (not rain) you should try ExOfficio. They have...

RE: Outdoor Research DryComp Summit Sack SPOTLITE REVIEW
It seems to be that for the price this is a great pack. Though, I still wish Golite made the Breeze. That had the outside mesh pocket. I only got a medium and my 9 year old loves it. Especially...

RE: "Measuring cup/mug"
The Snow Peak Titanium mug I have has markings, I think it is called the 700. But I used a scribe and tape to mark 1 and 2 cups in my other pots and mugs. The tape was a pain to get to stick on t...

"The Carbon Flame War"
George - It is funny. My dad and I had the same conversation only a few months ago about the concerns in the early to mid 70s. He compared them to now, also. College, war, and family. He thinks...
