My Locale Seattle area
About Me Grew up camping and backpacking in Texas, New Mexico and Colorado. Then went to the east coast for grad school...then job...then family. Twenty years later we were able to reach escape velocity from Washington DC and relocated the entire family to the PNW. I've fallen in love with the Cascades as much as the Rockies. And we spend 4 weeks every year in Montana near Glacier.

Cutting edge rain shells?
My old rain shell was abducted by gremlins between the trail and my gear room last month. Just disappeared. It was your standard 2.5 layer 6oz type shell with crappy DWR (even after careful washing...

Re: Re: Really enjoyed it
Yes, we did OK. Both Ned and I caught a respectable number. Enough to make it fun. They were, I must admit, quite small. It appears that the Skokomish, at least upstream portion, does not suppo...
