My Locale Western US
About Me Mostly 2 to 3 day loops, with a couple weeklong trips too, likely going 2 weeks or more with upcoming severance. Lightening up but with an eye towards toughness and hiking convenience (secure drying on the trail. quick set up, etc...), but also a bit better food (and beverage) for most overnights. Then again I might want to do a spartan "fast n'light" overnight ... and the gear closet grows.
I'll update my gear list tomorrow ...

Re: Dewey Point, 1/11 to 1/13/2013
Great photos. When I glanced at the pre-trip announcement, thought you all were going to do a day-trip. Seeing packs, shelters and stoves, what were everyone's sleep insulation at below zero?

Custom pack(s). With a long torso, fit from a store-bought pack has always been iffy but no more.

Re: New black Zimmerbuilt pack is done!
Looks good. I have a stripped down Zimmerbuilt with a mesh back but more pockets in a winter version for easy access to gloves, hats, gaiters, goggles, etc... could be interesting.
