I hope you are not such a base weight Nazi that you can't make some room for a RinseKit.


roflmao Some of those PCT trail videos "what's in my 12lb pack" are hilarious. I have some premium lightweight stuff but definitely the kind who rips off sleeping bag tags and cuts their foam sleeping pad etc to save ounces (I admit my toothbrush is cut in down but only so it fits in the toiletry bag).

I usually carry fishing stuff and it adds weight. My favorite spot I go is about 8 miles in and I pack wading boots, waders and fishing gear(2 rods, reel, spare spool, hip pack with flies, etc) . It starts feeling really heavy on the way back if everything is wet, and the very last portion to the trailhead is straight uphill out of a canyon. Full on leg burner.

Switched from the Sawyer squeeze bag to the gravity one last year. It's bigger but so far more efficient especially at camp when you want to boil water and down a lot of fluids. https://www.rei.com/product/849794/platypus-gravityworks-water-filter-system-kit-2-liter

I laugh at my wife for essential (snake) oil addiction but they really took the sting out of my sea lice welts. They always get me.

Lavender oil worked better than all 3 OTC things i had.

What's a surf trip?


Nothing is obscene provided it is done in bad taste.

I lived three years in the tropics, 8 degrees off the equator. Everyone wore underwear. But I guess if you're on a surf trip you live in trunks....

I first learned, from some rippers back in '78,
that wearin' undies ain't happenin, especially under board~shortz that ya wear allll day long.
Not happenin', no, no, no, no undie rash from walkin' from Rubber Duckies up to Rocky Point
and then surfin' for hours upon hours at aged 16, when you'se on Thee North Shore,
by yer~self, hahaha!

Ah, 'walkin'


All thee chickz, err girlz, err, women I've dated have luved my salty ballz, since then, hahaha
But they no seem to like smelly, sweaty nutz from me wearin' undie's out on thee town
nor seein' any chaffing around my schlong if I had to walk 500, ya know?
Nope, nope, nope...

Maybe if you live there you adjust to the humidity but coming from SD, I swampass so hard. Those shorts that are made like board shorts but have pockets and look “normal” changed my life. I’m thinking of working in some capacity the tropics, not just hanging out sipping drinks after a surf.

Surfboard and 2 sets of fins.

That’s 7.

So call is a big contrast to the tropics.

Plus who is used to surfing 6 hours a day for days in a row.

Bug bites suck. That’s all I have to say about that.

SoCal makes us soft.

It really does

I've gone and visited my wife's family in Michigan and went into a whole histamine fit because of all the bug bites. Stuffy nose, itchy eyes, sneezing, cough


My entire existence is a failed gotcha
