My Locale Exploring San Juan talus
About Me Bible believer, disciple of Jesus Christ, wilderness guide, rock climber, trail runner, mountain climber, ultralight nerd. I grew up in upstate NY going to camp in the Adirondacks where I eventually led trips on all the 46 high peaks, where going heavy led me to find Golite, through which I bought Beyond Backpacking, and the rest is history...
for years I've been an ultralight freak, sewing much of my own gear.

comfortable carrying weight
The review mentioned that the pack carried comfortably up to 35 pounds. I carry up to 30 pounds in my frameless Golite Gust; compared to the Gust, this pack is a major load hauler, suitable for he...

go for it
the Minima is great. I made mine with .6" primaloft for a bit more warmth, Momentum shell ,1.1oz liner, and a #3 molded tooth zipper. It is simple enough if you have some sewing experience. ...

Photon Freedom Microlight vs Princetontec Pilot
So, I can't find the Pilot on here anywhere. anybody used both of these? The Freedom sounds really good, but the features seem really similar

white gas
why is it not good for white gas? with MSRs at least, it would only be lighting the gas in the primer cup. it seems that should be a stable enough situation

Thru-hiker Liberty Ridge Shell
I've made two of these, both with a full #3 ykk molded tooth zipper and hood. the first was from 1.1 oz dwr, the second from 1.1 oz teflon dwr. I normally use the non-telfon due to its greater b...

Dasani Dasani 1 Liter bottle
it is really light, lighter than a 1 L gatorade, but is weaker and has a small opening, making it messier to put in drink mix. Mine worked fine, but they have a shorter life than gatorade bottles. T...
