My Locale Wet & Humid Southeast....
About Me I have been backpacking a little over 3 years now, but in that time I have logged a number of trail miles and went through a lot of gear trying to find my sweet spot. Now, thanks to cuben fiber, alcohol stoves, down and of course a better understanding, my TPW has severly dropped! My cold weather BPW is 9 - 10 lbs and my warm weather BPW is 5 - 6 lbs.
About 95% of the time I hike with family or friends and in the SouthEastern states. My favorites places to get away are anywhere along the AT as well as in the Great Smoky Mountains.

Bag + Quilt

Joe, You may have figured this part out, but the cord that comes with the porch is meant to be cut. I ended up making 2 guy lines out of some of Lawson Klines guywire using the clips that are on...

Re: Ridge pole spreader bar
Mark, the wedges that I cut into it were barely enough to even cut all the way into the inside of the tubing. I thought about the cuts weakening the overall pole so I didn't cut them to deep. ...

Re: Ridge pole or speader bar
Mark, I just hit up Lowes and sure enough it was $1.90 for a 5' section. So, I am thinking that I may can cut small wedges where I plan to bend it. I will try one and see how it works. If it...

Spreader Bar Mod
Doug, I totally agree with you about the spreader bar. I was planning on trying to find something to do what you have done. I think I may head to Lowes right now and look for some of that "...

Re: Backpack for thu hiking AT SOBO
