My Locale Maroon Bells
About Me I was more of a BWCA guy but am getting into
backpacking because my wife loves it so much and
then we can do more together. On the sunset side
of 60. In 2008 and 2009 I spent more time backpacking than canoeing.

You might want to look at Enlightened Equipment quilts. It might not be a bad idea to call and talk to Tim.

Maybe we should think about getting together this winter to plan a couple of warmer weather hikes for next year. Maybe for May and late Sept or October?
