Re: Re: Quilts and the Ground
I own and use a sleeping bag - a WM MegaLite Long. Honestly, I could use a quilt 90% of the time and save 8 ounces. I never zip the thing up. I only do it when it hits freezing. Otherwise, it'...

Re: Re: Coastal Trail - Spring

Desk Job
Yes, I work a desk job. 5 days a week I'm sitting most of the time, but I try to get up and walk around as much as I can. When I do, I'm in dress shoes. I drive 50 minutes home each day. On...
