My Locale Rocky Mtn. West
About Me An outdoors girl in Denver, CO. I have a love for skiing, snowshoeing and backpacking and want to venture into other mountain sports--backcountry skiing? I just took a winter camping course with the CMC last year. I have started to get back pain with a heavier load, so I want to lighten up and meet others in my area with the same mentality.

@ Ozzy
Thanks so sharing your ideas...I have some things to think about now. Sewing a tarp by hand would be fun. I was actually able to take a sewing needle on planes this summer no problem.
