Yeah, I'd say ultralite - looks like the pack couldn't weigh more than about 15 pounds. I couldn't identify the make or model - my first thought was Six Moon Designs, but more likely it's a knockoff called One Moon Design. smile

The sheriff didn't go into what the penalties were. I always figured that for some, it would be a felony; for others, a misdemeanor; and for the unfortunate, a warning ticket.

Of course, worst of all would be that the oncoming hikers just snickered, laughed, and pointed.

If I came around a bend with my wife and daughter with me, I wonder if my brain would be faster than my reaction. More importantly, if I could stop my two sons that are very protective of their mom and sister.

In Colorado, the guy actually isn't breaking any laws. In Colorado Springs it's perfectly legal to walk down the street naked as long as there is no sexual intent.

Man walking naked down the street: Officer, am I breaking any laws?

Female officer says: That's a hard one.

Man: Guess I'm busted.

Female officer: Yeah, you could stand to lose some weight.
