My Locale Extreme northern Sierra Nevada
About Me I'm 60, single male. I had been in Retail Management for over 30 years. I have mostly solo bped since the early mid '70's. I XC some, not afraid to go alone, I also solo winter camp, even out in sub-zero temps. A few years ago, I went on a backcountry bp to Alaska, where I flew in by bush plane with five others into Wrangell/St. Elias NP. Since early 2010, I have been collecting vintage/antique camping and bp stoves, having acquired over 90 now. I like many outdoor activities, from bping to dirtbike riding, gardening.

WTB: Flat, cuben tarp, 7' X 9'
Looking for a cuben tarp that is still in good shape if you are looking to sell and move to another size or type of shelter, I hike mostly solo, so need one in good condition. I don't want one...

Condensation between tent floor and pad when sleeping on snow
If there is a trick, let me know too. Comes with the territory. I usually only spend one night out on snow, but have done 3 nights in the Spring. A ground cloth will help. Duane
