All this walking has some frosting in the near future,
I'm getting ready to do some backpacking!
This is a light weight, single person tent I recently bought called "The One". It only weight one and a half pounds!
Last Fall when I hiked in the Sierra with Pete and Dave I used their water filter pump. Now I have my own.
And I made a "Cat Stove". It uses a Fancy Feast cat food can and denatured alcohol. I made the aluminum legs to support it.
And here is my new Gossamer Gear Maraposa-Plus frame-less backpack. You can hardly see it what with all my accoutrement's hanging on it! The empty pack weights one and a half pounds!
This Thursday I am heading out on a four day, three night, backpacking shake down trip. Total weight with food, water, GPS, camera and a good book to read; 25 pounds.
This is something I was dreaming about doing while in Seattle.
The time has finally come. Woo Hoo!
