About Me Having been a backpacker off and on since the early 90's when a trip to Philmont infected me w/ the bug, I have transitioned over to a lighter kit. My first encounter with UL backpacking was some CDT thru-hikers I met in New Mexico. I went home and combed the web, found BPL, and the rest is history. Right now, I'm between jobs, working at a local running shop and have been doing a little freelance writing, hoping to find a voice for a writing career perhaps. Previously, I have obtained a meteorology degree and master's degree in secondary educ.

WTB: HMG Expedition/ULA EPIC Pack

re: pole
I have the supermid and really like the shelter. Me, wife, and our two 40lb dogs have real estate to spare. Unfortunately, my pole setup failed me on our first outing. I was using my BPL Stix w/ a ...

Once again, thanks for all the helpful advice. Those $13 replacements are going to be a lot better for my pocket than new poles! Plus, I get to keep the poles I have no problem with.

Leki Replacement Tips on BPL Stix
Cashed out the tips on my Stix on my recent outing. Too late to turn back, so just hiked 'em to the finish. Now I've got a dilemma. Do I have enough pole left to install the Leki Tips over ...
