    I agree 100%. The mindset is totally different when you're solo and deep. I try to keep it light as possible but I've found I can take a bit more with a decent pack (using a Mystery Ranch now) which makes 65 lbs. feel more like 45, at least for the first 7 miles. Isolation in the wildlands is almost a spiritual thing for me. I go through terrible depression when I have to return to "civilization". Glad you've bounced back from your fall (actually not trying to be funny with a pun here, just typed it off the top of my head) but sorry to hear you can't pack any more. Anyhow, hope to hear you on-air and good luck with your bushcrafting skills!

    Just drink lots of water and mark out your camp. :p

    I just saw a show on Anatolians they had been protecting the flock from wolves. A pack of Anatolians would attack the wolves. Respect for that breed. That and the Great Pyrenees.

    I dont tent anymore but still have an old Sierra Designs stretch dome. It was made for very high winds.

    No tents or camping for me. It costs too much money to live like I'm homeless.
