My Locale Above the Divided Line
About Me I backpack as the Studliest Studly Studmuffin of Studly Studliness who ever Studlied himself out of Studlyville.

I cut a large path while leaving no trace and carring less than three pounds in my pack.

If you want knowledge of some real scientific prinicples, talk to me and I will guide you to the sun.

See you on the other side.

And remember to keep to the mean.

Re: Foot odor -- just deal with it?
Two pairs of socks--one to wear, the other drying out on your pack. Wash your feet and socks at a convenient stream.

GoLite Ether Wind Shirt (Wisp HP)
