BPL Community Profile

jerry adams (retiredjerry) - BPL Lifetime Member

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.

With a tent, there's nothing touching it on the inside to wick water. And it's not subject to body sweat and oil. Totally different than clothing. Isn't Epic typically used for clo...

Re: Re: Re: Re: Christians are safer than Muslims now?
I think of ABC, NBC, CBS, New York Times, WSJ as mainstream. I don't think PBS is mainstream. Detailed (boring) stories. Critical of the powers that be. Bush did make some high level ...
