About Me I dont own a scale or spend alot on gear, still I manage an 8lb base thanks to you good BPLers. Enjoyment is the goal here, which means light gear is important as is "lightness of mind". Kit must not be complex, fragile or expensive.

Dri-star
The Dristar socks are too thick for me, I have a bunch of these and I cant wear them. They seem hotter and wick less than regular cotton for me, even in the office. Thin dress socks are not as bad ...
