A more important question. Where is Addie? She has been around forever, but now seems to have disappeared.

She pokes her head in once in a while, usually to introduce new articles.

I think she and Rob are doing a couple weeks in Hawaii about now. You know, a delayed honeymoon thing.

There was a digital banner image that I created featuring a photo of me in a stoic pose and some hand lettering.

Alas, the art-directorial staff at BPL edited my photo out and replaced it with a cartoon titled "NERD"

( oh well )

Having met Sam a few times I would have to say that he looks downright ecstatic in that photo with Mike ;)

I have both "Allen and Mike's Really Cool Backpackin' Book" and "Lighten Up!" and I'm always referring to them whenever I have a question about something. They are excellent, and yes, Mike, they are FUN! I love the illustrations. My 97-year-old aunt got a big kick out of looking through both books, too!

I can't wait for the new book to be released. Thanks, Mike!

So, you gonna detail that TP-less technique?! on 04/15/2011 23:56:07 MDT Print View

I could ligthen my pack by about an ounce if you'd share your technique with us. It's introspective and mindfreeing. I think I'd have to free my mind to try it though!

If I run out of TP, I can always rip pages out of a small backpacker book.

Lighten up! on 04/16/2011 22:24:04 MDT Print View

I think Lighten up! is one of the best intro books for LWB. Can't wait to see the sequel! :)

And I've used the Telemark tips book quite a bit over the past three seasons. Any sloppy skiing is my own darn fault! :D

How many ounces did Mike save by shaving off that beard?
