New to the techniques and gear of SUL backpacking, my wife and I have been focusing on trimming down the weight in our packs. We are experimenting with making our own gear, searching for multiple use items, refining our cooking, but most importantly enjoying the heck out of our time together outdoors. Our trips tend to be 5-18 days and we crave experiences of much longer duration. We have backpacked all over the west coast, southwest, and some midwest trips. We hope to get into packrafting soon.
