About Me Having been a backpacker off and on since the early 90's when a trip to Philmont infected me w/ the bug, I have transitioned over to a lighter kit. My first encounter with UL backpacking was some CDT thru-hikers I met in New Mexico. I went home and combed the web, found BPL, and the rest is history. Right now, I'm between jobs, working at a local running shop and have been doing a little freelance writing, hoping to find a voice for a writing career perhaps. Previously, I have obtained a meteorology degree and master's degree in secondary educ.

re: big retailers
Here in the midwest, the Cabela's vs. Bass Pro standoff can't finish nicely, in my opinion. For example, travel across I-70 from St. Louis to Kansas City. You will find 4 Bass Pro Outlets. ...

re: fleece quality
The LLBean no frills 200w(??) I think, is a nice option. I've had one for the better part of 6 years and wear it almost daily in the winter. It washes and dries looking like new every time. The...

re: super prophet
Thom, are you demo'ing these? I've been hitting MLD daily, but haven't seen the super prophet come up yet on the options list. What are we talking cost wise for the upgrade?

Re: recycled materials
For those who would like to use "recycled materials": How about buying someone's used Jam that they tossed to the side to buy the latest and greatest from Golite? Reduce, Reuse, &...

re: co trail pack choice

This post is directed at Roger Caffin or any of you that have used the Dunlop K26 running shoes in your hiking. I'm a size 15 US, so I won't be getting a pair of K26's. However, I was w...

re: bivy
Sid, I just returned from a 6 night run in my homemade bivy. It has a net hood w/ a "rain" flap that can be velcroed over the mesh. The nights I cowboy camped, I was grateful for the ope...

Re waist/pad
Tom, not sure what you're alluding to. My large waist belt on my Ohm is pulled almost as tight as it will go and my waist is right at 33". This leaves at least 12" of adjustment. As f...

I feel your pain. My cat tried to make a bed in my sil tarp as I was sewing it. Cat claws + silnylon = wet night under tarp!
