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: Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Mini-Sith
Vlad, Sterno and alcohol hand sanitizers are very, very similar. 7 ounces of Sterno will burn for about 2 hours. I carry 1 ounce of hand sanitizer which, I estimate, would be good for a 20 minute b...

Re: Cold Weather Active Wear Headwear
I layer my head wear like I do on the rest of my clothing. My base layer is either a Smartwool Shadow's Hoody or an Ibex Hooded Shak. As it gets colder I add a Patagonia Houdini and finally a Seiru...
