    Alot of my backpack gear is army gear. I have a Zlite pad and burnton stove. Nothing fancy and I would like to make some upgrades but it works. Late season or when Im camping near my truck I have a smaller canvas tent. Sure is nice coming back to the wood stove and warming up/drying out when its cold and wet out. Usually just heat up food on the wood stove too.

    Nothing wrong with the Zlite! I've tried a bunch of pads, and the Zlite is about the only one I can sleep on for a few nights without my back feeling like it's gonna break. I put my clothes on top of the pad (or under, if they are wet) for some added loft, and I sleep pretty good.
    Other main gear:
    BA Fly Creek UL1
    Stoic Vamp 15 degree down bag
    MSR pocket rocket with Stoic titanium pot/spoon
    Steripen classic filter
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.

    I've done it but don't know if i will again. Spent a week in the High Uintas during the early season getting hailed on every afternoon. The hail would bounce off the ground up under the rain fly. It was like being in a popcorn maker.

    I like the Zlite. Its light and durable but I would like to get something a little thicker. Im going to get a tarp something like BOHNTR is using which will be an upgrade from my poncho. I have used a space blanket a few times to close it in better in bad weather.
