My Locale Earth (mostly)
About Me Semi-retired from a govt type job working on the side. Goal here is more MPD in a UL, yet comfy style to experience scenic hikes without sweating buckets, but also crank out miles if needed for whatever. Mix hikes with travel too.

For retail, the stuff needs to move. I started seeing the components on sale at Moosejaw some time ago but they are gone now (though I see a woman's shell on amazon currently). Trying to appe...
