My Locale Extreme northern Sierra Nevada
About Me I'm 60, single male. I had been in Retail Management for over 30 years. I have mostly solo bped since the early mid '70's. I XC some, not afraid to go alone, I also solo winter camp, even out in sub-zero temps. A few years ago, I went on a backcountry bp to Alaska, where I flew in by bush plane with five others into Wrangell/St. Elias NP. Since early 2010, I have been collecting vintage/antique camping and bp stoves, having acquired over 90 now. I like many outdoor activities, from bping to dirtbike riding, gardening.

WPL Int'l stoves are great
I'm still using my recently retired Int'l from '89. I had it out Christmas Eve, melted snow great and as a hand warmer Christmas AM in -2F temps after heating coffee water. Duane

BPL Biker in a wilderness
I agree. Depends on capital W or lower case. NF land can be considered wilderness in many places. Duane

2wd front wheel drive car in the sierra nevadas
Bob, I used to manage a convenience store in Plumas County, that is what officers told me. It may also involve how they see the situation when they come across it. Duane

Be advised too, the CHP may make you chain up the rear also on front wheel drives. I guess they are worried about the rear passing the front. Also in CA, if you do not have chains with you for yo...

Wait till after a storm. I live in the mountains and do fine without a 4X4. I sold my old Chevy LUV last year, so back to two 4X2's. Getting up the hill should be easy, getting to Badger Pas...

Why I don't use my outer clothes as part of my intended sleep system
I checked out the forecast last weekend and again before heading out for a Christmas Eve snow camping trip. I work out of town, so gear is packed well in advance before I can actually go. Makes F...
