About Me Hiking is something I kind of fell into to. I have always enjoyed camping both as a child and now as an adult. When my brother decided to take up hiking I noticed that all my friends enjoyed it too.
I like the minimalist philosophy of less is more. From the beginning I have made an effort to carry as little weight as possible and only what I need. The concept was one I had been practicing on family vacations and trips since I was a teenager.

Re: towels
I've been seeing a lot of commercials lately for ShamWow. Not sure if they're any different than other shammies. But aren't all these camp towels pretty much the same thing?

My camera has been acting up ever since my bachelor party! But I was able to get some good shots with it. Here's a set of photos on Flickr for how I've opened 8oz and 12oz aluminum cans.
