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: drying a platypus?
I keep mine in the freezer. That way I don't need to dry them and nothing is going to grow.

Re: Help me decide on sleep bags: NF Beeline 900 or WM Caribou
I have the WM Versalite and love it. I have not used the Caribou but given the quality of my bag I can assume you will not be disappointed. It lofts like a cloud. I notice the Beeline does not ...

Re: Epic Fabric Hammock
Great news! I can't wait to see what you've come up with. Like Douglas, I use the HH Ultralight Explorer and wish it weighed less. My sons and I are potential customers. P.S. I am also interest...

Sven, I feel for you. If you can't smell those shoes then you've got the stuffy nose from hell. I had the shoes for 3 days and the smell didn't seem to lessen. I did get a lot of comments at wo...

Re: Re: Re: Re: Re: Lindal revealed
That is certainly the case when the stove is on the canister but turned off. I thought we were talking about when the stove is in use. Heating a canister until it fails is interesting but not near...

Re: Re: Re: Lindal revealed
Another possibility is that when the plastic melts it is simply pushed into the stove by the canister pressure thereby shutting down the stove. If this is the case then when you remove the canister...

Re: Does anyone ORIKASO?
I don't have much experience yet but I went on a week long trip with a guide who had the Orikaso bowl. He didn't have to say a thing. I watch him use it and I was sold. I did ask him later about it...

Re: Delerion disappointment

Re: Re: Re: The real PNW and it's charms
I used my HH on the ground one windy and rainy night in the Colorado Rockies. One end was tied to a tree with the other three corners staked out. The ground was wet before I set up but it was nev...

Re: delerion low?
Jay, the one you linked to is missing the gaiter. The one with Gore-tex XCR has the gaiter.
