About Me Having been a backpacker off and on since the early 90's when a trip to Philmont infected me w/ the bug, I have transitioned over to a lighter kit. My first encounter with UL backpacking was some CDT thru-hikers I met in New Mexico. I went home and combed the web, found BPL, and the rest is history. Right now, I'm between jobs, working at a local running shop and have been doing a little freelance writing, hoping to find a voice for a writing career perhaps. Previously, I have obtained a meteorology degree and master's degree in secondary educ.

Tom, glad I put a smile on your face. Read a Captain Beefheart quote last night, "My smile is stuck, I can't go back to your frownland." Interesting that cars were brought up in th...

re: design
Does the aluminum can function as the outer layer of the Bushbuddy does, where it doesn't get hot and char the ground, while creating the secondary burn?

You know Michael, I've been ripping on the hipbelt, but it's really not the hipbelt that's the problem. It's the dang load stabilizer strap. I feel like an @ss. I might just try hik...
