About

I reside in south central Kentucky.  I used to own a rock climbing and caving equipment store.  I spend a great deal of my life outdoors and am always looking for simple, high quality equipment to make my outdoor adventures more pleasant. 


I like to keep my pack weight as low as possible, but am not obsessive about it.  I vary what I bring and use based on the trip I'm on.  I don't like to bring things that I don't need or use, but I also don't like to be on the trail wishing I had something that I left at home.


I hope people find my reviews helpful in the selection of gear.  I only review equipment after I have used it and have real world experience with it.
