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.

I remember from another thread your problems with Aqua Mira. I don't remember if that applied to all chlorine dioxide treatments, but would assume that it does. I am happy to have helped in some sm...

Re: 3 day couple's summer gear list
Good job on the list! I am having a hard time finding anything to comment on. I also hike in the Rockies. I assume the Granite Gear Air Compressor is for the Nunatak Backcountry Blanket. If I am ri...

Re: Mt. Whitney to Onion Valley
Great list Ken! I've had a hard time trying to figure out what feedback to give. I am guessing that some of your choices are due to having someone else with you. Are you looking for ways to lighten...

Re: Has UL gone mainstream?
