My Locale NEOH
About Me I started backpacking in the Northeast in high school with 3 buddies where we had quick access to the AT (Hertlein campsite). Continued through college and dropped off during the family-building years. Got back into camping with my sons and Cub Scouts which just fueled the need for more backpacking. Getting out on weekend+ trips for the past few years and loving it all over again.

I picked up a Golite Pinyon Ridge Parka this winter to fill in my insulation layer need and I have to say that I have worn it almost everyday since - on the trail and around town. I used to mostly...
