About Me Grew up family car/boat camping and then Boundary Waters camping starting in my teen years and into upper 20s. Took up backpacking around 30 and in 2006 started having knee problems which quickly put me down the road to lightweight backpacking... the transition is still ongoing and obsessively addictive even though I have pretty much resolved my knee problems.

Re: Snowshoes
They are good for 250 lbs in your average snow. I would say they might be good if you are trouncing around in really deep powder, otherwise may be too big.

Re: Bivy Pattern
I did see that post... I do like the idea of having more of a bathtub bottom. I might have to play around with my pattern a little more and see if I can redesign it that way. I also like the idea...

RE: Tyvek Bivy
Joe, I've been thinking about making another one as well and have found a couple plans that I would modify a bit. Backpacking Lite out of the UK has a super simple bivy pattern. Six Mo...
