About Me Trainer, personal coach. I grew up learning about stewardship and living on the last remaining family held Spanish Land Grant in Ca. Understanding, that at best our job is to leave the world a little better then we found It, I've always found my sanctuary and inspiration in nature. Love the crew here at BPL for their passion, wisdom and at times their insanity.

Re: Doumid users-help
Hi Ken love my Mid. I use a large neoair and with an offset pole and slightly angling the pad there is a ton of room. Jump in the water is great. Bill

Re: Re: BPL Absaroka Pack
I have a crazy thought, since BPL has made the investment in time, research and capital why don't we let the market determine wether it becomes a hit or miss! Just two cents thrown in from C...
