Aren't we going to try and guess where he is?

I see all deciduous trees, no water. Looks to be mid-morning or mid-afternoon. I don't see any contrails in the skyline. So, not much to go on.

He could be anywhere from Tate's Hell to the Outback. I'm guessing somewhere in the Appalachians - it's a little cooler there.

Can't wait for the full report! The high country is at least a month away from being snow free, but I'm getting bivouac fever already.

ummm, i don't like it. showing everyone what your camp, and you, AND all yer gear looks like might be dangerous. we want you around for a long while more, karl and your opsec seems a little bit suspect. but i DO hope you are having fun, and maybe my boy scout troop can learn sumthin' from it.

Hope that you're enjoying the outing, KD. Maybe because I grew up in remote country I'm not much into camping but ill tune in to hear your wisdom.

Strewth, you had me going there, I thought you had taken up beekeeping for a second. lol!

Loved camping (touring on my motorbikes), can't do it any more, so on the point of upgrading the fun to a Tiny House to build in the garden.

My camping essentials were Kelly Kettle with full cooking set (awesome); Vango 3 man tent (4lbs in weight, never let a drop of water in), Vango ultra lightweight self inflating mattress, and a Vango 4 season sleeping bag.

Vango make good stuff that's Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme approved, is decent value, and never let me down.

Atorch to get from the bar and find the tent, was always handy too.


If the Tiny House works out ok, and I live long enough, I might take some pictures.

Have fun in the outdoors. :)

Just saw my purple Osprey Ariel pack in the garage (sigh). I couldn't resist picking her up and trying her on. (Don't have firm plans - yet. Still too much snow and unsettled weather in the Trinity Alps).

What a marvelous creation; Osprey has been on the leading-edge of pack innovation for many years. My pack was purchased in 2003; it is sized and scaled for a woman's body, the hip belt + internal strap netting/suspension + comfortable frame are truly awesome! Easy to access to most all compartments (LOL there are a few truly hidden ones)(hey theres my spork). I am sure the newer models have been improved across all fronts and are lighter. I wouldn't trade my old Osprey in for anything! Am rarely out for more than 3/4 days with 1/2 nights being my sweet spot + need for comfort "stuff" (like Therm-A-Rest Z and their inflatable sleeping pad and tasty food) - this pack works!

Am certain that you will be reviewing your pack.

Surprised to see you're using a tent over a bivy bag...figured you'd be taking a minimalist approach.

Bivy bags have one SERIOUS downside (as do hammocks in most configurations) -- bugs.

I had an Osprey and sold it. Nice sack, but **** is it heavy.

I have a War Bonnet Hammock. That takes care of the bugs. Still light, but can be hot in the summer. I loved the bug screen and with the double wall, even mosquitos in the Pacific Northwest could not bite through it.

(I still have PTSD from those MFers at Ft Lewis)

I tend to use a hooped bivi bag that has plenty of room for me and my boots and has a mosquito mesh which enables you to lie back and look up at the stars, or flip onto your belly and command an arc of surveillance/fire without leaving the cosiness of the bag. It's the dog's bollocks. Don't know who makes these sorts of things any more, I did a quick google search and all I found were hooped bags where the opening faces toward your feet, not away from your feet, leaving a closed "hood" section behind your head. I would not care for that approach, where you can't readily see what's outside the bag, behind your head.
