My Locale Eastern Idaho (moved from Midwest)
About Me Electrical Engineer by trade. Hobbies include recumbent bike riding, magic, piano, music compostion and of course backpacking.

Backpack monthly with scouts or other small group. Love the exercise and alertness it brings. Ray Way caught my eye in 2001. My load lightened. Because of that, able to go faster, farther, AND still smell the roses. Love the lightweight insight on this forum. I'm also a Teva sandal backpacker. My feet love them.

Re: Long pants or shorts in hot weather??

Re: Humble blue dye pie
Jama, I love your inquisitiveness. And from your gear list, I can tell you have studied a lot. I like how you went down to the detail--- even a hairband! And you understand your calorie intake. Th...
