About Me Having been a backpacker off and on since the early 90's when a trip to Philmont infected me w/ the bug, I have transitioned over to a lighter kit. My first encounter with UL backpacking was some CDT thru-hikers I met in New Mexico. I went home and combed the web, found BPL, and the rest is history. Right now, I'm between jobs, working at a local running shop and have been doing a little freelance writing, hoping to find a voice for a writing career perhaps. Previously, I have obtained a meteorology degree and master's degree in secondary educ.

re: review
Nice write-up Will. I really appreciate the thoughtfulness that goes in to these reviews. Overkill for the average layman, but pure erotica for enthusiasts! You write: " The closest compar...

re: pants
How about the thru-hiker Liberty Ridge Shell Pants? Of course you need to sew them, but it's one of the easier sewing tasks. 2oz. in sil for $30, not bad.
