I take crocks as well. They weigh nothing, hang on the back of my pack, come in handy for creek crossings, camp shoes and peeing at night :chuckle:....

They looked heavy and clunky ? Guess Ill have to checkem out.

I take moccasins, lighter and less clunky. And can double as stalking slippers when its dry. And less gay.  :chuckle:

Never thought of Mocs. Good for double duty. How are they for deeper stream crossings?

Big Agnes Fly Creek UL 3 next to the meadow.  Have similar photo with the Seek Outside tipi in this same spot, need to find where that is.

I didn't read all sixteen pages so forgive me of this was addressed but I'm seeing alot of pics of camps set up in the middle or edges of open Meadows. I have always set up back in the woods more to use the trees as a wind screen and I always feel like it's warmer as well. Am I confused or missing something? Those camps look alot prettier in pictures than my "this was a sorta flat spot by some trees"

The cheapest, lightest ones from Walmart I believe. Had them for years.

Bracer40, haven't used them for stream crossings yet.

My two cents.  I have done both - It depends on the weather.  If there is a wind storm that comes up over night, I want to be in the meadow rather than in the trees.  It can be like a war zone in there when limbs and tree tops start coming down!

Also, as I am sure everyone knows, the bottom third of a valley and the crest will always be colder than the mid sections due to cold air sinking, and wind.

You carry an air pad but no sleeping bag for "emergencies"...?

I usually just build a big fire, stand around it all night and enjoy the stars...if I get tired, I nap...and collect firewood throughout the night...

PS. I call this "camping" btw...can't be lost if your mindset is "I am home where I am..." Most people who get "lost" are too fixed on finding a specific spot at a specific time. Relax, think, and wait for daylight...

Sounds like you get lost a lot.  You have a lot of experience.
It's a TIKKA thing..., you may not understand.
