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.

Re: Pad Options for Cowboy Camping on Sierra Granite at 20 Degrees F

Foam tricks
Casey, I remember that post. I'll try a thick piece of foam tonight and report back also. Might be better with the thick foam from chest to lower back so that shoulder and hip are not on it. Th...
