My Locale Above the Divided Line
About Me I backpack as the Studliest Studly Studmuffin of Studly Studliness who ever Studlied himself out of Studlyville.

I cut a large path while leaving no trace and carring less than three pounds in my pack.

If you want knowledge of some real scientific prinicples, talk to me and I will guide you to the sun.

See you on the other side.

And remember to keep to the mean.

Re: Your bear pics
I think its a load of malarkey. Bears have poor vision and a great sense of smell. I doubt the color of the line makes that much differance. And what about the color of the bag??

Re: half-ounce heavier

Re: Where do you buy cuben fiber?
Not to be rude--But you asked basically the same question a couple of days ago and were told to search the forums--which include a thread telling you all of this. Also, try google, its really diff...

Re: Bevy of SUL

Re: Bivy with Zipper?

GoLite Ether Wind Shirt (Wisp HP)
