My Locale Oregon and Washington
About Me I started hiking about 45 years ago. My first backpack was 40 years ago. I currently try to do one backpack trip of 5 nights every month (which can be tricky in the winter) 20 to 50 miles. Mostly I stay around Mount Hood, Columbia Gorge, Mount Adams, Goat Rocks, and the Olympic Peninsula. In recent years I have shifted to lightweight - my pack weight without food and water is about 15 lb (7 kg). I make a lot of my own gear - silnylon tarp-tent, bivy, synthetic bag, simple bag style pack. My sleeping pad is a Therm-a-Rest air mattress.

Re: Weight just keeps on going up
I think if center pole is 60 inches, then I can sit up without touching walls with the back of my head. Much shorter and I'll get wet if there's condensation.

Re: Re: Portland/SW WA hikers: I got a tick today!
maybe there's a set cycle of bugs after snow melts, which will be earlier, but otherwise bugs will be the same?

Isn't there a trail that parallels the beach, up a ways, if you wanted to do a loop? Probably nice views of ocean from higher up. I think there might be a little road walking? I don't ...
