Here are some pics of this year's gear. I'm still working on a UL pack design. In the loaded pack picture the gray stuff sack contains my shelter, sleeping pad, and footprint(tyvek). The cooking system is a combination of many different styles and ideas, some original, some not. It will boil water under field conditions (20 mph winds, 45 degree water, 2c, rolling boil) in four minutes:)
These stakes are made from motorcycle spokes
I'm heading to the Bearpaw Mts. this coming holiday for a solo shakedown. I did have to deploy the shelter last weekend to avoid a thunderstorm on a practice hike. Wind gusts of 32 mph didn't bother it to bad.
I'll try to get some weights eventually. I had 5 litres of water plus my full grub sack and it seemed quite acceptable.
If you can't rock on, walk on.......
