My Locale Wet & Humid Southeast....
About Me I have been backpacking a little over 3 years now, but in that time I have logged a number of trail miles and went through a lot of gear trying to find my sweet spot. Now, thanks to cuben fiber, alcohol stoves, down and of course a better understanding, my TPW has severly dropped! My cold weather BPW is 9 - 10 lbs and my warm weather BPW is 5 - 6 lbs.
About 95% of the time I hike with family or friends and in the SouthEastern states. My favorites places to get away are anywhere along the AT as well as in the Great Smoky Mountains.

Re: What do you think of your Deuce of Spades?
Got mine today too. I got the blue. It weighs 16.8 g, or 0.592 oz! I agree that it feels quite rigid, and it fits rather comfortably in my hand. I went in my back yard and dug a hole with it. Mostl...

Re: WM Summerlite or WM Sycamore MF
If you ordered one and they sent you another, I am sure that they would be happy to take care of it. Have you contacted them about it? And did you buy it direct from WM, or from another online store?

Re: Price!
GoLite has the Imogene 2, and REI has a Dash 2, both of which are "free-standing" and around 2.5 lbs.

Re: What is the lightest 2p free standing tent?
If I'm reading right, the Big Sky Soul 2 is as low as 1 lb 9.5 oz... It's free standing and double wall too.

Re: Metal Jackets
It's my understanding that the Easton Metal Jacket stakes are essentially the same as the MSR Carbon Core stakes. I will say that I do not own any of the Easton's, but I do own the MSR'...

I have heard that there is zero traction with the LP's on wet rocks and roots, typically found on the east coast trails. For this reason I stuck with my Inov-8's. However, other than the...

TAR vs Camptek
Has anyone tried the TAR model? It looks exactly the same as the Camptek version, but it can be had for $31 on Amazon. I will likely pick one or the other up sometime. I figure it would be of so...

Re: Re: Spot II issues?
I had wanted to get one of the SPOT's for some time, but it was never top on my list... and I'm kind of glad it never was. Over time, it seems that lots of folks experienced issues with the...
