About Me I live in the Redwoods of Northern California. It rains here, a lot, often going 30+ days without it stopping. I love it!

I have migrated from a 35 pound BPW setup to a winter time setup of under 7 pounds, a shoulder season setup of under 5 pounds and a summer time setup of under two pounds. Check out my website http://www.hikelighter.com/ for my gear list and reading my articles, and my youtube channel http://www.youtube.com/user/HikeLighter for videos on SUL and XUL gear and whatnot.

Re: LIST: SUL below freezing possible?
I am not exactly sure how 13.25 pounds qualifies as "SUL". At 13 pounds just about any trail in the entire USA can be done, summer or winter. There are folks every year who do hikin...

Re: Re: Why a 4" grinder, not a dremel
Because, you know, its really important to have a perfectly straight cut on a cup/pot that you are going to be hiking with :-D

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Cutting down a Ti pot
