About Me Having been a backpacker off and on since the early 90's when a trip to Philmont infected me w/ the bug, I have transitioned over to a lighter kit. My first encounter with UL backpacking was some CDT thru-hikers I met in New Mexico. I went home and combed the web, found BPL, and the rest is history. Right now, I'm between jobs, working at a local running shop and have been doing a little freelance writing, hoping to find a voice for a writing career perhaps. Previously, I have obtained a meteorology degree and master's degree in secondary educ.

re: John
I respectfully disagree with you John. The Forest Service is not there to provide nanny service for every camper in a National Forest. I bet every one of us on here have wet camped adjacent to a st...

re: eugene
I'd agree w/ Eugene that copycat production isn't a very strong business model. However, I'd say if there is a wait on production and you can fill buyer's needs sooner(assuming qual...

Thanks Will
As always, a thorough evaluation of data is a welcome read. I would say that the survey of prospective buyers would change dramatically if we found some backpackers on a windswept, alpine peak. I t...

re:
Nice to see a tall guy option on the market. Nothing worse than a belly shirt fit on an insulating layer. I do wish that the waist band was a draw cord vs. the stretchy elastic on these jackets. It...

re: mesh
Ken, I'd second that lycra 4 way mesh as the better choice. I'd also recommend checking out the 5 yds to SUL backpack article comments. One reader used old running shirts cut up to make str...

re: foot box
Nice looking quilts Javan. Those caffeinated binges of french press construction had to give birth to more gear making. It's only natural. Quick question: On your foot box, does the omni tap...

A suffer fest always seems to be followed by moments of clarity and inspiration. I guess that's what they call a runner's high. Glad you made the wise call and didn't have to be airlift...
