My Locale Sunshine State
About Me Began hiking in the Carolinas, some in Virginia and now in Florida - much less variation in terrain, I'm sad to say, but beautiful in its own right. A Gatewood Cape w/Serenity is my primary solo shelter nowadays.

I'm also into kayaking & fishing.

Re: Re: BPL ul60 and ul90 quilts
Martin, Unless I'm in a hammock, I always use a bivy with my quilt. I'm 6'2", but that's not why I use the bivy (my height never has been an issue). I switch from side to ...

Re: Bladders and Back Bumps: Solutions?
