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.

David, Check out Ibex has the Shak Full Zip Jersey and the BBQ Shirt. I think the Shaks fabric might be too heavy. If the BBQ shirt were long sleeve it might be ideal. ...

Re: Button down shirts? Oui? Non?

Re: Silk long johns or Silk bag liner?
The silk long johns make sense to me. They are more versatile. They protect your bag while providing a little more warmth and are also useable outside of the bag. I can't think of a single advantag...

Re: Re: Re: drying a platypus?

Re: My pepsi stove "breathes", any ideas?
I've made a number of stoves and they all seem to "breath". It sounds like yours is more of a "heavy breather" than mine. I have only made one open jet style the other dozen have been closed jet.
