I hate when an application gets updated and then you have to remember how to make settings work that already worked previously.  So I am making this post as a reminder since it seems to not be a lot of info about it online.  If you don’t want to send things you delete to trash, which then requires you to go empty trash for it to really be deleted ….. then add a “Delete Permanently” to your right-click menu items.

I accidentally blew away my 2015 UL gear list, so I recreated them and the url changed.  The contents are mostly the same.  Here are the links:

So much has changed since 2014…..I keep getting lighter and lighter or more comfortable (in the event something I replaced from 2014 was actually heavier … i.e. I started using a Osprey Exos 58 whenever I needed to take an underquilt.  The underquilt simply wouldn’t fit with the other gear in the Outdoor Products 46L pack)


You can see my gear lists at geargrams.com:

Winter (would be much lighter without camera gear used for Adventures of Ed)

Optional (This is another set of gear I keep around for friends, its basically stuff I bought, used, upgraded)
