My Locale Greater Yellowstone
About Me Backpacking Light Magazine Publisher and co-founder. My "home" backpacking areas are the national parks and wilderness areas of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. My own approach to ultralight backpacking currently focuses on reducing the number of items in my kit, to achieve simplicity and efficiency on the trail, and applying UL techniques and materials to long hikes w/o resupply.
