My Locale Luxury-Light Luke on the Llano Azul
About Me 75 years old. Started backpacking in the late 60's. Raced small sailboats for 20 years until I moved to Lake Tahoe in '83. Started backpacking again and upgraded my gear shaving 20lbs off my back. Began CARRYING A GOOD THING TOO FAR, a workshop for beginning backpackers in 1987. Hiking mostly in the northern Sierra, Lost Coast and Southern Cascades. Was introduced to lightweight backing by my friend and hiking partner, Donn Nibblett, and have experimented with alcohol stoves and, most lately, an ultralite titanium mulit-tool potty trowel.

Re: Trowel - which one?
I made my own from sheet Ti. It don't weigh much. Got to put a rock on it so it don't blow away in the wind. Works pretty good as a combo spoon, shoe horn and snow/sand stake. My ...

Re: RE: head count
As I recall, the road dead ends, in a loop, at the parking lot. I was in there once last September and found my way easily enough. If you stop at the Pine Crest Ranger Station to get your permit,...

Martin Backpacker Guitar
