Lint with car door Chase Nelson

Lint is known for his dedication to the lightweight backpacking ethos, so much so that he now uses maps tattooed to his body instead of the cumbersome paper versions or those found on heavy electronic devices

Jan’s Jaunts and Jabberings | Just some joyful jawing about backpacking, hiking and snowshoeing

My name is Jan and I LOVE the wilderness! As a result of this love, I’ve become obsessed with gear, maps, trail guides and food, all things that help me enjoy my time in the wilderness.

I also enjoy sharing, whether that be knowledge, photos or stories, and since I find so many seeking the same information, I decided it was time for me to create a more efficient way of dispersing such.

This blog is a work in progress, and with summer my busy play season, be sure to subscribe (follow) so that you receive notifications as I add postings and complete each section.

WELCOME, enjoy and I hope you find it useful.

P.S. I live in far Northern California

Run, Hike, Live, Love: Gear Reviews from the 2013 PCT FKT: Part 1


A thru-hike always puts gear and clothing to the ultimate test. Daily use for months on end is more than most items are manufactured for. During my speed hike I added the quantity of hours per day used to that equation. Since I never took a day off and seldom stopped for breaks most of my gear was under constant bombardment except the 5 hours a night I was sleeping. Therefore the pieces of gear that stood out as all stars I can highly recommend. Other pieces I wasn’t as happy with. However, keep in mind that these reviews are only about how these things worked for me. Every person is different, has different needs, a different hiking style, and may have different results. Analyze my kudos and complaints in light of how they would apply to your hike/hiking style. This is not an exhaustive list of my gear, just the items I feel deserve a review and/or people frequently ask about.
