My Locale Luxury-Light Luke on the Llano Azul
About Me 75 years old. Started backpacking in the late 60's. Raced small sailboats for 20 years until I moved to Lake Tahoe in '83. Started backpacking again and upgraded my gear shaving 20lbs off my back. Began CARRYING A GOOD THING TOO FAR, a workshop for beginning backpackers in 1987. Hiking mostly in the northern Sierra, Lost Coast and Southern Cascades. Was introduced to lightweight backing by my friend and hiking partner, Donn Nibblett, and have experimented with alcohol stoves and, most lately, an ultralite titanium mulit-tool potty trowel.

Tyvek Sublite condensation
I have been using my Tyvek TT Sublite for over a year now and love this tent. It's light, well ventilated, easy to set up and has served me very well. Three weeks ago I did a two-night trip...

Shame on me... NOT!
Cut, sand, bend and glue if you so choose. I got Steve's TiCa v1 #18. It is a serious piece of functional art, lovingly made and is a treasured tool.

Re: Where would you live?
Central California: Lost Coast, four hours; Mount Shasta, five hours; Northern Sierra, three hours. No snow unless I want to see it. And... The Governator is termed out.

Re: Gear Help Anonymous
Susan and I wandered around REI and Sunrise Mountaineering for hours and couldn't find a single thing we even wanted. Except for an REI Novara Express I covet. On sale for two hundred off.

Martin Backpacker Guitar
James you're right-on for every point. I have a late '50s Martin 18G-00. It's a dream, but no way I'd haul an axe that heavy (and that valuable) into any canyon. My Backpacker too s...

Keebler Fudge Peanut Butt. filled cookies (like Reese's)
These get my 5/5 rating also. They are absolutly a stealth food. If the others find out you've got them you'll have to share. Peanut Butter and Chocolate. The only thing better is more.
