My Locale Exploring San Juan talus
About Me Bible believer, disciple of Jesus Christ, wilderness guide, rock climber, trail runner, mountain climber, ultralight nerd. I grew up in upstate NY going to camp in the Adirondacks where I eventually led trips on all the 46 high peaks, where going heavy led me to find Golite, through which I bought Beyond Backpacking, and the rest is history...
for years I've been an ultralight freak, sewing much of my own gear.

Make Your Own Gear: Five Yards to SuperUltraLight Part 4 - Pack
I recently found a bit of dyneema gridstop in my boxes of fabric and figured it needed to become something. I had just enough for the SUL pack, and it is sweet. I've had a Golite Gust for 6 y...

A new kind of 4 oz backpack?
Great idea! The "pack" could be used for a groundcloth too. I too was inspired by Ray Jardine and his writing on Grandma Gatewood, and several years ago developed a single-strap daypack...

Leak/moisture proof spice shakers
Thanks, I also just found the GSI lexan shakers. I am in Colorado, so prolonged wet weather isn't as regular as elsewhere, but it is a good point to remember. Mainly, the spices just end up i...

Leak/moisture proof spice shakers
I work at a wilderness camp, and for our base camps all our meals are cooked outside on propane stoves. Our multi-spice wheels always get moist inside, rendering them useless - any recommendations...

Ultralight Climbing
the FFA of the Nose was Lynn Hill, in the early 90's. She did it free over a few days, then freed it in 24 hours! Some guy named Scott I think freed it, but only toproped the cruxes, then in ...

I have had the Cilogear 60L worksack Version 1 for almost 2 years, and love it. it is big enough for ultralight gear, 8 days of food, and rock climbing gear for long backcountry routes, but can co...

Jam reinforcements?
I've had a Golite Gust for about 6 years, and have gotten many miles out of it. No big trips (> 2 weeks)or thru-hikes, but a few 1-2 week trips, and lots of overnights, day trips, rock clim...

Hiking In Cold Rain
You could also look into Paramo Directional waterproofs. I use the Aspira Jacket (and sometimes the Cascada Pants) extensively in colder weather. It is heavy and expensive, but breathability (whi...

Thru-hiker Liberty Ridge Shell
I've made two of these, both with a full #3 ykk molded tooth zipper and hood. the first was from 1.1 oz dwr, the second from 1.1 oz teflon dwr. I normally use the non-telfon due to its greater b...

this is an incredible read. Get it for the epic stories alone. I often say "it could be worse" to encourage my spirits in hard conditions, and the stories really illustrate how true that i...

Dasani Dasani 1 Liter bottle
it is really light, lighter than a 1 L gatorade, but is weaker and has a small opening, making it messier to put in drink mix. Mine worked fine, but they have a shorter life than gatorade bottles. T...

Paramo Aspira Jacket
Paramo has a very unique method for waterproofing - there is no membrane, but instead has a dwr shell with a pump liner that moves liquid water, whether rain or sweat, away from you faster than it can...

Cilogear 60L worksack, version 1
The Cilogear 60L pack (mine is version 1) is the one pack that can handle everything, and excel at everything. It is light enough for backpacking but durable enough to abuse with bushwhacking, alpine...
