My Locale NorCal - South Bay
About Me I love the wilderness and UL gear.
I went on my first backpacking trip in Oregon when I was 6 weeks old (AUG72). It snowed all night long. When day light came I was the only thing left dry. Just wish I could remember it!

In 2000 my first UL trip resulted in a night hike to stay warm. Wrong gear.

Finished the BPL Scouting course (May 2010). Very cool. It was like closing a door. I feel like I can teach the principals now.

RE: "train" for hiking?"
I walk and walk and walk and walk... 4-5 miles a day and 10+ at least once a week. I am a flatlander so I need to train a little bit.

RE: "4day/3night late October AT"
I agree with the upper post. You can also get rid of the Blue Micro Towel, The Leatherman Juice, and the Pillow Bladder. The Juice is way to heavy for it's value. A small pair of scissors wa...

RE: "Has lightweight packing really caught on?"
Are we the fringe? Or should we create a new acronym - Technically Advanced Backpacking (TAB). Because that is really what all of us are doing. We are using technology, and good back country tec...

I repackage all of my MH food in Zip Lock bags. But I do it pre-trip and put anything left in the freezer for the next trip. It seems to keep fine doing it this way. I have had no problems. But...

It should be fun. I work in aerospace and have some insight on the adhesive tapes that could work. We use a lot of tape. I used a pyramid at the Scouting BPL course in May for the first time...
