My Locale Maroon Bells
About Me I was more of a BWCA guy but am getting into
backpacking because my wife loves it so much and
then we can do more together. On the sunset side
of 60. In 2008 and 2009 I spent more time backpacking than canoeing.

Cold feet
My wife uses a WM Ultralight and usually only her nose is sticking out. She also has some down booties she wears to bed.

Camping with partner?
This net tent from AlpinLite and my SpinnTwinn gives us plenty of room and no more mice on our heads. That really wakes you up, doesn't it?
