About Me My name is Ryan Faulkner, i am 17 years old, and have been UL backpacking for about 7 years. I have been inspired by hikers like Andrew Skurka, and Ryan Jordan, and have dedicated my trips to going light and fast.
I plan on hiking the PCT and AT before finishing college, and after I hope to get some sort of a career in the backpacking industry.(I havent quite figured out how exactly, but i will :)
I have some big plans for the future, but ill keep those quiet for now ;-P

Re: Bivy Sack
David, what kind of bivy sack did you use, was it half breathable fabric like the Vapr or equinox ultralight, or fully waterproof? I have used the equinox on the east coast in about 95% humidity
