My Locale Western Washington
About Me I started backpacking again in 2008, after a long hiatus---I haven't been since I was a kid. Loving learning about a different way to hike---backpacking was no fun when I was a teen-ager, stuff was too heavy! Completed my dream of hiking the Wonderland Trail in 2010, now onto more hikes in the Cascades and Olympics.

Leg Cramps

I checked this jacket out, because I'd like to support NW cottage manufacturers. The price made me put this in the "no way!" category. I'm not sure if it's the same material...

carbon fiber tent poles
My boyfriend and I are looking at Easton Mountain Products Kilo 3 tent as a double wall tent that is lighter than our current one. I can't find any reviews anywhere about it, even though it...

Montbell Outpace Parka
The Outpace Parka is a decent jacket, but it has some design details that could be better. It sheds rain really well. It is pretty light and packable. Its breathability seems to be fairly good, alth...
