Re: BD Hilight
Thanks for all the ideas so far. I'm thinking the Hilight might be worth looking into instead as I'm 6'2". I'll look into some of the other tents mentioned. As for a Tra...

Covington Flats, Joshua Tree, 12/17/10
Fleeing L.A., navigating a sea of cars, idling and lurching, the 10 Freeway a river of bodies, lights, and machines. Office Max's and BJ's Breweries, one after another, the day fast appro...

Who said there were rules?
It's called long distance SUL/UL solo cross-country fastpacking. No rules, no sponsors, no fees, no designated routes, no help, no cheering crowd at the finish line. Do what many of us do; ...

Brandon: As for scouting the CHRT, no, not this time. I've already been through it in the area I'm going to. There's a canyon out there I've been wanting to explore...but not on ...

Re: I wish I could join you!
You'd be more than welcome Adan. I didn't put up any trip invites simply because my idea to do this was so last minute (this morning, actually) I figured nobody would be free.
