About Me Having been a backpacker off and on since the early 90's when a trip to Philmont infected me w/ the bug, I have transitioned over to a lighter kit. My first encounter with UL backpacking was some CDT thru-hikers I met in New Mexico. I went home and combed the web, found BPL, and the rest is history. Right now, I'm between jobs, working at a local running shop and have been doing a little freelance writing, hoping to find a voice for a writing career perhaps. Previously, I have obtained a meteorology degree and master's degree in secondary educ.

Thanks Will. I looked at a few 2 person "lightweight" tents for my wife and I, plus our K9 troop. The lack of space and price points sent me to a Mid. With the mid I can set up the mid on...

Ditto on the paperback & journal. Some nights sleep comes before reading time, especially if I journal and look at my maps, guidebook, etc., but those nights when you need a little unwind time,...

Spibelt Waist Pockets
Just bought one of these for my wife to carry GU on long runs. They are rather nice. I just wanted to alert BPL'ers of their existence. The belt version might be redundant w/ hipbelts, etc. How...
