My Locale SouthEast
About Me 39 year old living in Greenville, SC. I grew up playing in the woods of the PeeDee region of SC. I'm an avid cyclist with a new found passion for bikepacking. I do most of my bike camping, hiking, kayaking and cycling in SC, NC & GA. I've settled in at about 10 to 12 pounds completely loaded at this point - a balance of comfort walking and in camp.

High Visibility Stakes
Its definitely not Titanium Nitride. All kinds of colors are available. I chose yellow to get them to stand out, of course. The guy that did the work for me is RD at Shawnee Trail Performance Coati...

WM Caribou MF Sleeping bag, is it any good
I used this bag for a few years and regret selling it. I wouldn't push it too far beyond the temperature rating. This is especially true if you aren't in an enclosed shelter. Used as rated ...
