My Locale NEOH
About Me I started backpacking in the Northeast in high school with 3 buddies where we had quick access to the AT (Hertlein campsite). Continued through college and dropped off during the family-building years. Got back into camping with my sons and Cub Scouts which just fueled the need for more backpacking. Getting out on weekend+ trips for the past few years and loving it all over again.

Potty Trowel
I know this one has been exhausted before, but I finally got around to trying to lighten up one of the $1 Fiskars trowels I found at Walmart. Took out the orange end plug and hacked about 2 inches...

Montbell Thunder Dome 2

+1 on BRM Meusli - I make mine FBC-style with some dry milk and a little brown sugar. Love it in the morning!
