My Locale Colorado
About Me My primary pursuits are mountaineering (hiking with the goal of a summit) but I am beginning to re-kindle my love of Backpacking. In particular I have become a big fan of the Ultralight approach and love this website. I seem to be in a perpetual state of shelter/sleep system evaluation. My current setup for shelter is a GG SpinnTwinn with YMG Bug Bivy 1.0 (summer) or Katabatic Bristlecone Bivy(colder). Sleep system is Katabatic Chisos 40 degree quilt with Neoair short.

Re: Ridden off, then limped off, the CT
Sorry you went through that. I only backpack in wilderness areas anymore if at all possible.

Moose in Colorado
Seems like Moose are really getting firmly established in Colorado. I have seen them in RMNP and in the San Juans near Creede this summer. Nice trip! Thanks for sharing.

Re: GoLite Shangri-La 2 Tarp
Not really sure why they called it a big score. $149 is the regular price and probably free shipping is common when you spend > $100.

Katabatic Gear Bristlecone (Regular Length, Wide Width)
I have had the Bristlecone Bivy for a year and really appreciate the side zipper for ease of entry/exit. The mesh is just right for breathability and views. The stake out loops are nice when you wan...
