I will be back from my Afghanistan deployment later this summer. It is very lame to be surrounded by mountains out here and not allowed to hike them.
I will have some new gear waiting on me to try out when I get back. I decided I wanted a pack with a frame, so I ordered up a Multicam ULA Circuit (Using a Jam currently). I also used my REI dividend to get a pair of BD Z-FL Distance poles to try out. I never tried them before because I was in-between sizes. Now I will just have to check when I get back if they will be a direct replacement for my other BD poles in my Lightheart Solo. If not, I will have to order up a new strut. I also picked up a Klymit Static V as a backup to my older NeoAir.
My buddies are planning a Yosemite trip again this year, so hopefully I will make it back in time for that.
