About Me I am relatively new to backpacking. I did some in high school, which was a long time ago, and just started again. I find that the UL style blends with many of my interests which include adventure racing, mountain biking,road biking, kayaking, sailing, and of course backpacking. I like to think of myself as an adventurer rather than one hobby or another. Of course, the kids have kept that in check over the last few years. I have some catching up to do!

bike tarp

re; stick
The one time that I have set up my hexamid tarp, I did use a stick for the pole. I was worried about it poking through so I wrapped one of my spare socks around the tip of the stick to protect the ...

Re: warmth
Dave, Thanks for the input. The headnet is kind of an oversight. I just copied this list off my general 3 season and changed where appropriate. I assume no mosquitos then? On the list you will ...

re; GC list
Michael, I was wondering about the weather too. From what I have read, the road into the North rim can be closed from snow into May. I have also been told to expect temps of 100F. I do have synthe...

That's about what mine weighs too. I am waiting for my fibraplex pole so have not had it out to try it yet even. Mine is green, I think I like the white looks better though. gl
