My Locale The Tetons (via Idaho)
About Me I divide my time between doing cartoon drawings at my desk in Idaho, and sleeping outside in the mountains. A few years back Don Ladagan called me up and asked me to draw instructional cartoons for his excellent book LIGHTEN UP! He was quite an inspiration, and I embraced his simple teachings. From that point on I became a weirdo zealot for a lighter backpack. In 2005 I spearheaded the very successful lightweight program at the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS). Presently I’m working at Backpackinglight’s Wilderness Trekking School.

LIGHTEN UP by Don Ladigan is an excellent primmer to ULTRALIGHT TIPS. They are sort of meant to be purchased together, but they certainly stand alone too. ULTRALIGHT TIPS is dedicated to mor...

In the Grand Canyon
There is a lot of sandstone in the desert southwest. This is pretty good. Smooth stones will show up in the natural washes. That said, many of the pants tend to be prickly and not at all appropr...
