About Me I've been a backpacker for 40 years. I taught hiking and cooking merit badges at Boy Scout Camp when I was 14. Ran class 5 rapids on the New River in a open canoe back when it was a wilderness experience. Lately I'm a cube dwelling software architect during the week and a mostly solo backpacker on the weekends. Look for me in the Monongahela National Forest.

Re: Caribou Hood
Yes, the Caribou's hood had a draw string. I've had it down in the 20's(F) several nights and been warm with long johns inside my Contrail. If it's colder I use my WM Alpinelite.
