My Locale Above the Divided Line
About Me I backpack as the Studliest Studly Studmuffin of Studly Studliness who ever Studlied himself out of Studlyville.

I cut a large path while leaving no trace and carring less than three pounds in my pack.

If you want knowledge of some real scientific prinicples, talk to me and I will guide you to the sun.

See you on the other side.

And remember to keep to the mean.

Re: Re: Re: Drink Powder Re-Packaging
Drink crystal lite or similar--and insert it in a plastic straw with a funnel. Seal one side with the heat of a match, fold the other side over and secure with a paperclip.

Raingear AND a poncho?? I'd suggest shedding the raingear and going with the poncho--or you could shed the bivy and get a bigger tarp. I think your Gatorade bottles are a little on the light side...

GoLite Ether Wind Shirt (Wisp HP)
Of course you got clammy in it. The temperature was in the mid 60s. There is no need to wear a windshirt in the mid 60s unless you have a slight drizzle or there is a VERY VERY strong wind blowing. ...
