    Skyline Divide Trail Glacier Wa

    I must preface this with telling you I'm not a backpacker and I'm also a flatlander from Tn. I'm an avid camper/hanger via car and or kayak. I'm hard headed and often my ambition writes checks that I...
  4. Re: TN>Land between the Lakes--last minute hang this weekend oct 18-20

    I'm out of town. Please post a trip report. I've bikes all of the n/s trail but haven't hiked and inch of it. Do you know where you're camping? Backpacking or car camping?
  5. Re: Pacific NW Bellingham/Sedro-Woolley/Mt Vernon Area.

    Oh wow. I had no idea. Had a nice hike on the Skyline Divide trail. It was a bit colder than I expected. I also didn't expect to run into snow but I found a bunch.
  6. Re: Pacific NW Bellingham/Sedro-Woolley/Mt Vernon Area.

    Change of plans. Backpacking the Skyline Divide trail instead tomorrow morning-Thursday noon ish.
  7. Re: Pacific NW Bellingham/Sedro-Woolley/Mt Vernon Area.

    Awesome pics! Look like a good time. Thanks for the bug tip. I'll probably leave the bug net behind. Looks like Deception Pass Loop 15ish miles. Leave Wednesday am coming back Thursday. Suggestions...
  8. One more question. Can I leave the bugnet at home?

    One more question. Can I leave the bugnet at home?
  9. Re: Pacific NW Bellingham/Sedro-Woolley/Mt Vernon Area.

    Good call on the straps I'll grab some. The Temps are looking fantastic. Low 40's overnight this week. Perfect hanging weather.
  10. Re: Pacific NW Bellingham/Sedro-Woolley/Mt Vernon Area.

    I'm a little nervous about my 6' tree hugger straps. The trees here are hugeafied. I forgot to plan accordingly. I should have doubled up on them. I'm sure I can find some little trees from which to...
  11. Pacific NW Bellingham/Sedro-Woolley/Mt Vernon Area.

    I'm visiting family for about 2 weeks up here. I brought some backpacking gear. I'm a rookie backpacker. In fact I've never been. I've kayak camped and car camped plenty. I'm also in great...

  13. Re: Anyone familiar with the military 4-piece sleeping bag system?

    Synthetic fill. I primarily use the patrol bag late spring-early fall. When Temps go below 40 I'll switch to the intermediate bag. The bivy has an unintended awesome use. You can fit your sleeping...
  14. Re: Anyone familiar with the military 4-piece sleeping bag system?

    Perhaps phasing it out was an incorrect description. The woodland camo version is being replaced by a 5 piece ACU system. I'm buying up the 4 piece woodland camo modular sleep systems at auction. The...
  15. Re: Anyone familiar with the military 4-piece sleeping bag system?

    I love the 4 piece sleep system. It's just so versatile. I actually bought a bunch of them at auction and sell them on Craigslist. They're phasing them out so they're almost always in perfect shape....

    Anybody ever use Cargo Chute Mil-C7020?

    I can't find much information on it. I was wondering if it would compare to regular 30d nylon ripstop. I was able to find out that there is a type 1 which weighs about 1.1oz per sq yd and a type 2...
