About Me Native Seattlite, hiking and biking in the woods since I was a kid. Returned to backpacking a couple years ago and discovered the pleasures ultralight hiking-- it appeals to my gadgeteering nature and my aging body parts :)

Re: Golite Lair 1 versus Cave 1

Re: Re: Re: S.O.S.--The "Sharp Object Sheath"

Re: Re: Re: When Did You Begin UL?
