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.

Gatewood Cape
Brett, did you try the Gatewood Cape?? Because it's enclosed, it seems it would not have the same issues as a regular tarp in regards to being too short... Thanks, Jeremy
