My Locale Norcal
About Me Hey, I'm looking for tips to go lighter and ideas for more trips. I've only been backpacking for 4 years and just recently realized my pack could've been MUCH lighter. I usually do two 9 day trips, three 5 day trips and a few weekend trips a year so I'd like to make the most out of the little time I have. I need to branch out of the same 'ol romps I frequent.

@ ken k "That price is ridiculous. I mean... crazy high. It's ten years old. And heavy. And even when it was new it was old technology. Would you take $9? I might be willing to go to $12 ...
