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: Speer Top Blanket or JRB No Sniveller?
I really like my No Sniveller long (NSL) quilts. The hammock you have may be the deciding factor. I assume you know that the NSL was designed for the Hennessy hammock but will also work with others...

Re: Diet for High Mileage Long Hikes
Bill, I recall a post of yours where you mention being on a liquid diet for medical reasons. There is obviously no need to go into the medical issues, but I am curious about the similarity, or la...

Re: non-cook hiking
Frank, I am not sure if I understand how you are preparing the oats. Are you soaking them in water like the other grains you mentioned? Do you add powdered milk, sugar, or anything else?

Re: Hiking without kitchen
I haven't done this on a trip of any consequential length but the discussion here and the trip reports of Coup from Golite found here make me want to try it. He went for weeks without resupply on n...
