About Me My wife and I are originally from MI. Lived in VA for 6 years and really loved the area. But we've just moved back to Michigan, yeah! We couldn't stay away. I'm been an avid backpacker for about 20 years or so. After my first week long trip carrying #60 I started down the lightweight road. I like to make some of my own gear when I can. We love to travel and hike. I've been a designer all my adult life, primarily in the automotive industry but the last 6 years in aerospace.

"Severed bottle cap could be multi-used as a napkin ring for a formal backpacking dinner." Too funny. :)

Great story. Thanks for sharing. Isle royale is my favorite place to backpack. I've been there 4 times now and it never gets old.

In spring, summer, fall the warmth of my tent wouldn't be a factor. But in winter it would. Usually a tent can be warmer by minimizing the air gap around the bottom of the tent and closing a ...
