My Locale Boulder, CO
About Me I started backpacking as a teenager in southern appalachia. My summers in college were spent in mountain heaven, glacier national park. Since then, I've lived and played in the high sierras, the cascades, and now the colorado front range. Walking in the mountains with a light pack never seems to lose its charm. I recently picked up a bad habit called climbing.

Thanks for that. I contacted the clymb after placing my order and they let me use the code retroactively. Thats good customer service. I'll post here about the jacket if anyone is interested.

Been waiting for Joe to make a full-on winter shelter. No doubt it would be bad-a, since all his stuff is.
