My Locale Maroon Bells
About Me I was more of a BWCA guy but am getting into
backpacking because my wife loves it so much and
then we can do more together. On the sunset side
of 60. In 2008 and 2009 I spent more time backpacking than canoeing.

I won't bring steaks for everyone Friday, however I am willing to grill a second night. It won't be that far back to the car and a cooler. Possibly not quite BPL but sure would taste GREAT.
