My Locale Colorado Rockies
About Me I'm 45 years old, 6'4" and 195 lbs. I've backpacked in the Colorado Rockies, the Wasatch and Uinta mountains, and in Zions National Park. I mountain bike in the Colorado Rockies. I've kayaked in Yellowstone and on Flaming Gorge, and rafted the Green, Colorado and Snake rivers. My trips are usually a week long or less. I love to hike wherever I can. I'm an Assistant Scout Master and I'm often out with the Scouts. My immediate goal is to thru-hike the Colorado trail. I've lived in Utah, Ohio, Illinois, Argentina, California, and Colorado.

Re: bring out your dead (stoves)
Canisters are recyclable. They just need to be punctured and flattened first. REI has a free tool to puncture them.

Re: My 2¢
Like Stephen, I also was never confused about how the subscriptions were represented, and the ethics of those involved in BPL have never been suspect in my time here. I just want the print content ...
