My name is Justin (of course) and I live on the East Coast. I am an avid ultralight backpacker and I am constantly trying to lower my pack’s base weight, but keep it comfortable as well. This site is mostly about my adventures and the gear I use along the way.
Where do you typically hike?:
I mostly hike in Maryland, Virginia, and North Carolina.
What’s your base weight?:
Usually it is around 8.5 lbs. I find this to be a nice weight for comfort and security. I will do a SUL (baseweight < 5 lbs.) hike occasionally but I find it to be less comfortable for me personally.
Where’s your favorite place to hike?:
My favorite place would have to be Mt. Rogers, VA. The highlands there are beautiful. I usually try to do at least one multi-day trip to this area each year.
I think that’s about it. I hope you enjoy the site and thanks for checking it out.
