My Locale Extreme northern Sierra Nevada
About Me I'm 60, single male. I had been in Retail Management for over 30 years. I have mostly solo bped since the early mid '70's. I XC some, not afraid to go alone, I also solo winter camp, even out in sub-zero temps. A few years ago, I went on a backcountry bp to Alaska, where I flew in by bush plane with five others into Wrangell/St. Elias NP. Since early 2010, I have been collecting vintage/antique camping and bp stoves, having acquired over 90 now. I like many outdoor activities, from bping to dirtbike riding, gardening.

bumping sucks
Jack, yes, I was just saying to a previous poster, that there had to be something he could do to either receive or not get notified. Duane

I was out last Saturday night, close to home. Light rain most of the night. An ocasional drip around my head. Guessing from condensation from my breath. Duane

Not sure what you mean
"I'd like to see a "No gear-swap" option in my profile settings." I don't get notified of replies to anything I start or reply to. Something you can edit yourself? ...
