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.

I notice in the comparison tables that Big Sky went w/ a lighter fly and MSR went light on both fly and floor. Appears as though REI is still manufacturing w/ the intent that people will abuse the ...

re: pop. bomb

Bill, I'd try Gorilla Glue. Jason Klass used it in his myog poles on his blog some time back. Not sure on the longterm durability of it, but I bet it lasts awhile. Good luck.
