My Locale Wet & Humid Southeast....
About Me I have been backpacking a little over 3 years now, but in that time I have logged a number of trail miles and went through a lot of gear trying to find my sweet spot. Now, thanks to cuben fiber, alcohol stoves, down and of course a better understanding, my TPW has severly dropped! My cold weather BPW is 9 - 10 lbs and my warm weather BPW is 5 - 6 lbs.
About 95% of the time I hike with family or friends and in the SouthEastern states. My favorites places to get away are anywhere along the AT as well as in the Great Smoky Mountains.

Re: Re: Re: Foam-like neoair protector anyone?
Yeah I wouldn't suggest using the ccf pad directly on the ground. I still use at least a small piece of polycro directly on the ground...

Re: ESBIT gunk & pot storage
I also used the little tyvek sleeve to store my cone before putting it inside the cook pot. With my 1.3L set-up, it has been used for lots of both wood & Esbit, however, the Tyvek sleeve does a...

Re: Foam-like neoair protector anyone?
I use the large XLite. When packed up, it is my "frame" or back padding may be a better term. Anyway, in the colder months, I will carry a 1/8" GG Thinlight pad to supplement the XLi...

The Trail Show Podcast
I have never listened to the "BPL" podcasts, but have been listening to the guys (and gals) over on The Trail Show, and it has been quite entertaining. I have enjoyed it for sure.

Re: Starlyte Modified
Reggie, a few questions. Which Ti-Tri system did you use when doing the tests? Classic, Sidewinder, Fissure or Fusion? Did you use a heat reflector/ground protector under the stoves? How d...
