My Locale Colorado Rockies
About Me I'm 45 years old, 6'4" and 195 lbs. I've backpacked in the Colorado Rockies, the Wasatch and Uinta mountains, and in Zions National Park. I mountain bike in the Colorado Rockies. I've kayaked in Yellowstone and on Flaming Gorge, and rafted the Green, Colorado and Snake rivers. My trips are usually a week long or less. I love to hike wherever I can. I'm an Assistant Scout Master and I'm often out with the Scouts. My immediate goal is to thru-hike the Colorado trail. I've lived in Utah, Ohio, Illinois, Argentina, California, and Colorado.

Re: clothing layering, windshirts
The only thing I can added to the previous excellent posts, is that I also think of my windshirt as my bug layer. I use a hooded windshirt that keeps the bugs out while not becoming a sweat suit. I...

Re: High-Altitude Flatus Expulsion (HAFE)
Thread hijacking at it's most foul! I really shouldn't add to this, but... Nothing makes the miles fly by faster than being self propelled. Also, I can think of nothing beside down that ha...

PJ, Not so crazy from my point of view as another lowly software engineer. If you look at where the weight is on a Sumo wrestler, it's mainly around the CG. It's also interesting that lowe...

Re: What do you sleep in?
Nothing special here. I sleep in whatever I had to put on to stay warm before I went to bed. The quilt goes over that, if I'm not already wearing it. My three season layers are: Head: nylo...

Re: Tarps and Bugs
In my experience, the most impervious shelter to bugs and the like is the Hennessy Hammock. You enter thought a small slit so it's even difficult for bugs to enter when you enter or exit the ha...

Re: puncturing canisters

Re: UltralightCold Weather Hammock Pad Idea
Cameron, I did something similar to this. I glued 1/8" foam from the hardware store to a space blanket and cut it to fit me. I never tested it outdoors because it was feeling damp when I used...
