My Locale California
About Me I live in the San Francisco Bay Area with my wife and two children. I have hiked and backpacked throughout the state and beyond. I'm always looking to lighten my pack and lengthen the days and mileage of my trips. Favorite trips I've taken include thru-hikes of the John Muir Trail, High Sierra Trail, and Tahoe Rim Trail.

Re: Your body is not a backpack, it is a body.
Gabe: Insightful and fair points. One can take an analogy too far to make a point. Although backpacks don't have a desire for gear, people seem to crave gear in ways that are at least some...

Re: Lighten Yourself
Thanks Jay. To those who have commented on the value of exercise, I completely agree, and I don't mean to diminish it. I was hoping to convey a one step at a time approach. Get eating unde...

I'm in
As Tony mentioned, I'm in for 2. Taking my Dad, so we'll be taking our sweet time getting into camp. Looking forward to it. I haven't snow camped since 2006. Should be fun.

Just what we need, something else to add to the life list. But seriously, sounds like a unique opportunity.

Mountain Laurel Design FS exodus
I have taken the FS Exodus on 2 trips this summer with very different circumstances. Both left me very happy with the FS. First, in July, I hiked 130 miles along the PCT in the Sierra. For this t...

I have to add my two cents about MLD's service. Early this summer I damaged the bottom of my Exodus pack. The damage was completely my fault (sliding down granite). I wrote Ron and asked if he ...

I like this quilt but give it a 4 because the temperature rating is optimistic. I've used it once below freezing, and while I was fine, I had to layer up substantially. I used it on a mid-Septem...

Sunday Afternoon Adventure hat
I highly recommend this hat for sun protection. This hat is light (M=2.5 oz on my scale) and provides full sun coverage due to the long back and wide brim, which allows you to carry much less sunbloc...
