My Locale Sunshine State
About Me Began hiking in the Carolinas, some in Virginia and now in Florida - much less variation in terrain, I'm sad to say, but beautiful in its own right. A Gatewood Cape w/Serenity is my primary solo shelter nowadays.

I'm also into kayaking & fishing.

Re: Re: Clothing for 30 degree SUL trip
Love my Down T. In fact, I picked one up a few years back because of the shoulder issue my vest had. At first I was surprised that I almost never hear of others using one, then I thought about ...

Re: North Carolina Quilt System - Input Appreciated
