My Locale Midwest
About Me I am in my late-40's and really got interested in backpacking about 10 years ago as a way to have some concentrated time with my boys, now all finishing up high school or in college. I try to get out a few times a year, including a bi-annual trip to Colorado for some of the big stuff. Otherwise I am stuck in the very boring midwest where everything exciting is a good day's drive away.

Platinum edition
I just bought the Fly Creek UL 2 Platinum and the floor feels like 30D silnylon--very thin and more slippery than the 'heavier' versions. I suspect I'll throw some GG polypro under it ...

Should be okay
Paul, I've done Isle Royale (loved it!) and the first section of the Georgia AT. I don't know your age or hiking condition but your estimated mileage should be doable. Are you doing t...

I read somewhere to keep salami and cheeses stored in parchment cooking paper once they are opened as they tend to store better. I tried it my last time out and it seemed to make a big difference ...
