About Me Hey, I'm looking for tips to go lighter and ideas for more trips. I've only been backpacking for 4 years and just recently realized my pack could've been MUCH lighter. I usually do two 9 day trips, three 5 day trips and a few weekend trips a year so I'd like to make the most out of the little time I have. I need to branch out of the same 'ol romps I frequent.

I already have a neoair
But to help you out... This is really a good deal. My unaltered neoair small is 9 oz for $129.00. According to that link this one is 9.9 oz. My short thermarest is about 12 oz.

This is totally out of context. "Small mammals is what op wants to shoot. My dog is a small mammal." This was a response to: "Nobody is going to shoot your dog unless they try...

Awesome pictures
I checked out your site and I love that they're all from (or very near to) Cali. I'm going to pick through to see where I want to go. Keep on trekking.
