My Locale Wet & Humid Southeast....
About Me I have been backpacking a little over 3 years now, but in that time I have logged a number of trail miles and went through a lot of gear trying to find my sweet spot. Now, thanks to cuben fiber, alcohol stoves, down and of course a better understanding, my TPW has severly dropped! My cold weather BPW is 9 - 10 lbs and my warm weather BPW is 5 - 6 lbs.
About 95% of the time I hike with family or friends and in the SouthEastern states. My favorites places to get away are anywhere along the AT as well as in the Great Smoky Mountains.

Those Maha chargers are nice...but they are a little pricey...I will keep this charger in mind if I decide that I like the eneloop batteries better than buying all the lithium batteries...

Ti Eye stakes
I am a happy user of Lawson Kline's 7" Ti stakes. A while back he had some of the Ti-Eye stakes that helped solve the problem with the rotating head on the shepherd hook stakes. Unfortunat...
