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.

Re: Hexamid solo-plus microline locs
Joe sends some spectra cord that you cut. The instructions tell you how many pieces to cut certain lengths and at which corner/tie out to use them. You don't need line locks or even need to tie...

Re: BD Alpine Carbon Cork Poles or Leki Corklite Aergon SpeedLock?
FYI: In Andrew Skurka's new book, he claims that the BD poles you have linked to are his current favorites... He says that they are "the best combination of weight, stiffness, and lock rel...

Re: Zpacks Multi-pack
If the pack has a daisy chain on the shoulder straps it can be attached. I attach my multipack using the provided straps at around shoulder level on the daisy chain on my pack straps. The webbing u...

Re: ExOfficio Air Strip Lite shirt.
I sent mine back pretty soon after I got it. The fit was all wrong for me...way too baggy in the torso area and the sleeves were too short... That was a bummer too because I really wanted to like t...

solo plus groundsheet
I use the Zpacks Solo Plus groundsheet in my Solo Plus Hexamid. As mentioned above, using the right rain gear can be better than compromise, and in this case too I feel that the appropriate ground ...

Zebralight responded to my email late last night. They say that the L91 is the best disposable and the Eneloops are the best rechargeables. So, I have that covered!
