About Me

Dayhiker?  It's kind of an inside joke related to my backpacking exploits.  Over many years I have evolved into an ultralight backpacker & my equipment is so small, light & minimal that I actually use a day pack for multi-day trips.  Other hikers think I'm a dayhiker.  Ultralight is generally defined as pack weight of under ten pounds total.  This does not include food or water.  My summer pack usually weighs in the six pound range & can go into super ultralight, under five, if I get really serious.  Grams count just like in kites.  I have done full on winter camping in the thirteen pound range.  Tents? too heavy.  Stove? who needs one.  And so goes the eccentric behavior.
