    Hey, Welcome back, man! A lil' hyatus can be a good thing. Sub-species said she was gone shoot yer drawers off, 'n it sounds like she did.

    Anyways, I've got 2 tents, 2 older Northface bags that zip together if nec., a couple stoves; a Coleman 2 burner gas, 2 packable, several tarps and day packs, several lanterns with diff. energy sources. At this point I don't have a reasonable backpack for a severalday/week outing. An array of small/lightweight camping tools and everyman's best resource, a great wife!

    I miss backpacking. I used to do three season camping (no summer-too many people, bugs, and humidity) in the Va./N.C. mountains.

    My idea of really, really roughing it is a pop up camper parked really close to the bathrooms that have hot running water and flushing toilets.

    I'll spend all day outside but when I go to sleep, I want to be warm and comfortable..............and not have to dig a hole to go to the bathroom.

    Nothing wrong with pop-ups , I've looked at them for the sake of my wife and I on long road trips.To and from the main events ..! They're impressive , a lot of stuff , comforts of all kinds .
    A good firend and I were talkin about Cal. and Yosemite , Kings Canyon and Sequoya National . From here in Pa. It'd be a three day drive to get there and a pop-up would be real handy.!
    El Capita-n , Half dome and the famous Yosemite Falls..! Back in the seventies I was there and yeap , I did a lot of climbing..!
