About Me I love the wilderness and UL gear.
I went on my first backpacking trip in Oregon when I was 6 weeks old (AUG72). It snowed all night long. When day light came I was the only thing left dry. Just wish I could remember it!

In 2000 my first UL trip resulted in a night hike to stay warm. Wrong gear.

Finished the BPL Scouting course (May 2010). Very cool. It was like closing a door. I feel like I can teach the principals now.

Now that is what I am talking about. Compare the low cost with the middle and the overly expensive. I don't mind paying the money but choose not to because I am not sure how the clothing or o...

"Any other sleeping techniques?"
Good thinking. At this time of year you are going to save weight over layers unless you have them really thought out ahead of time.
