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: clothes list
Dane, great list! I really need to do some thing about the weight of my pants, 21.52 vs 6.8, wow. I've considered making something like the Bomber hat. How have you liked yours?

Re: Re: Toothbrush
Can't wait to see what you come up with! Thanks for the compliment on the trowel. No business plans at the moment. I certainly don't plan on hand crafting ti potty trowels. Way too much work.
