About Me Grew up family car/boat camping and then Boundary Waters camping starting in my teen years and into upper 20s. Took up backpacking around 30 and in 2006 started having knee problems which quickly put me down the road to lightweight backpacking... the transition is still ongoing and obsessively addictive even though I have pretty much resolved my knee problems.

re: Vibram Five Fingers??

re: Footware for Fording Creeks
+1 on wading with the trail runners. Being that they are mesh, they dry out really fast. This last weekend, I hiked in 35-45F weather in my mesh trail runners. Probably 30% of it was in wet ...
