My Locale Western Washington
About Me I started backpacking again in 2008, after a long hiatus---I haven't been since I was a kid. Loving learning about a different way to hike---backpacking was no fun when I was a teen-ager, stuff was too heavy! Completed my dream of hiking the Wonderland Trail in 2010, now onto more hikes in the Cascades and Olympics.

How to store it?
Storing long things in my pack is a current issue for me. My MSR folding spoon weighs about the same as the bamboo spoon, although it doesn't hold as much. How are you carrying the spoon so it ...
