My Locale Exploring San Juan talus
About Me Bible believer, disciple of Jesus Christ, wilderness guide, rock climber, trail runner, mountain climber, ultralight nerd.

for years I've been an ultralight freak, sewing much of my own gear.

Non-Antibiotic Toe Infection First Aid

Cheapest UL Gear List Challenge

I don't normally go cookless, but in the summer for a couple nights it would be fine. or maybe bring a pot and do cookfires? the lighter weight dry food might make up for the pot's weight...

Thru-hiker Liberty Ridge Shell
I've made two of these, both with a full #3 ykk molded tooth zipper and hood. the first was from 1.1 oz dwr, the second from 1.1 oz teflon dwr. I normally use the non-telfon due to its greater b...

Dasani Dasani 1 Liter bottle
it is really light, lighter than a 1 L gatorade, but is weaker and has a small opening, making it messier to put in drink mix. Mine worked fine, but they have a shorter life than gatorade bottles. T...
