My Locale West Virginia
About Me I was a guide for many years in Yellowstone, Denali, and Black Canyon of the Gunnison. Moved to Eugene, Oregon, for my Master's and got a good taste of the PNW. Now I'm in West Virginia making maps for all of our wonderful national parks with the NPS Publications program at Harpers Ferry Center.

Bill, Thanks for the comments! I'm a youngin' (21), so hard ground isn't so much of a problem for me. Then again, I am a side sleeper, have no natural padding, and have never dealt with ground...

Marmot Ion
Man, what a disappointment. I, too, got stuck with the Campmor version of the Ion. I'm quite thin and short-waisted, so the Ion's athletic cut and short length were great for me. The fit of...
