My Locale Boulder, CO
About Me I started backpacking as a teenager in southern appalachia. My summers in college were spent in mountain heaven, glacier national park. Since then, I've lived and played in the high sierras, the cascades, and now the colorado front range. Walking into the mountains for a few days with a light pack never seems to lose its charm. I recently picked up a bad habit called climbing.

more rietvelds please..
I think this 'round up' just came across as a little insulting to a BPL audience that has a pretty low tolerance for fluff. Truly, there is nothing here that couldn't be gleaned from a ...

i got mine shipped to the US. Shipping + customs was $15-$20 total, but I think the T2 is like $50 so not too bad all together. I like wool a lot too. I'm sure you'd be fine with what you&#...
