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: Re: Re: Garmin or Satmap?
if the InReach displayed topo maps it would be pretty good. Can you enter text to send or do you need a smart phone for that too?

Re: Officer Involved Shooting Statistics.
I thought there were laws that prohibit government agencies from keeping statistics on gun crime or maybe they're limited in what they can do
