My Locale John S. hasn't told us about their geographical region yet.
About Me Originally from Louisiana, I enjoyed camping in my Boy Scouting days and eventually became an Eagle Scout. Many years later (2002), I discovered backpacking after going on an REI multisport trip to Alaska. My first backpack was to Grand Canyon, and I was hooked!

Re: Redford and Nolte film about AT - Take a Walk In The Woods
Nolte public appearances have looked so bad in recent years I wasn't even sure if he was capable. Should be a good movie.

Re: How do you rinse out clothes? Wash off body?
If backpacking with a significant other it may be more important to clean up a bit.

Re: Lightweight Bike Packs and Resources?
