My Locale Colorado Rockies
About Me I'm 45 years old, 6'4" and 195 lbs. I've backpacked in the Colorado Rockies, the Wasatch and Uinta mountains, and in Zions National Park. I mountain bike in the Colorado Rockies. I've kayaked in Yellowstone and on Flaming Gorge, and rafted the Green, Colorado and Snake rivers. My trips are usually a week long or less. I love to hike wherever I can. I'm an Assistant Scout Master and I'm often out with the Scouts. My immediate goal is to thru-hike the Colorado trail. I've lived in Utah, Ohio, Illinois, Argentina, California, and Colorado.

Re: ground sleeping in a hammock
Douglas, I hope you get some good feedback as I'm interested in this as well. I slept on the ground between two perfectly spaced trees once. It was before I had my quilts. I was using a mum...

Re: What do you sleep on?
Mainly a Hennessy Hammock with a No Sniveller underneath. When on the ground, a Prolite 4 regular at 24 oz (675g). This thread will hopefully help me do better.

Re: Evernew 0.9L Titanium Pot
Sam, I found the thread and it was Jhuara who started it. I had to laugh, you participated in the discussion as well. Not laughing at you, my memory can be very spotty as well.

Re: To Eric Noble re hammock
Rob, I certainly understand price being an issue. I was fortunate and bought one No Sniveller and won the other in a drawing. I'm glad Douglas responded because he is the expert in this and has...

Re: Re: Back Sheet
It just occurred to me that you could probably get the stuff from a sign shop and have them print whatever you want on it. Like first aid info or knot diagrams, etc. It might also serve as a splint...

Re: Back Sheet
I seem to recall seeing it at Officemax or Staples. Of course, during an election it can be found by the side of the road, if you don't mind some dudes face staring at you from inside your pack...

Re: Creating a LW Frame sheet for Jam2
Jonathan, 2 ideas come to mind. If you are using an inflatable pad, like a Thermarest, you can insert it like a pipe inside of the pack. You do this with the valve open, then after you pack your st...

Re: MB - Snap ??
Bill, I work just a few blocks from the Montbell store in Boulder. I was out and about and stopped in. The snap is labeled as you say "Advancen YKK". I hope you and Brett don't mind.
