My Locale Extreme northern Sierra Nevada
About Me I'm 60, single male. I had been in Retail Management for over 30 years. I have mostly solo bped since the early mid '70's. I XC some, not afraid to go alone, I also solo winter camp, even out in sub-zero temps. A few years ago, I went on a backcountry bp to Alaska, where I flew in by bush plane with five others into Wrangell/St. Elias NP. Since early 2010, I have been collecting vintage/antique camping and bp stoves, having acquired over 90 now. I like many outdoor activities, from bping to dirtbike riding, gardening.

BV350 -- Vulnerable in the Sierra?

Sleeping Bag – What others should I consider?
I have three WM bags, so much better coverage than a quilt and I have both a ZPacks and a EE. My 35F Caribou used to keep me good to 28F, but seems with me being older (61), I can get cool in it i...

Glue/epoxy for carbon fiber tent pole sleeve insert thingy
I've been able to get at it, so was surprised it had not moved when I was setting up last night. I should take a note book with, so I can check later, getting too old to try to remember stuff....
